Here's my entry, 1997 Kona Explosif team edition.

I wouldn't have this bike were it not for Pip's kind intervention with Brian. Moreover, the stories we shared together with this particularly bike, through talking with Joe Breeze and Jake the snake really cemented our friendship. It's travelled far and wide including a soggy but super enjoyable ride with another legend now teamed up with Pip in the universal single-track, Fairfax Pat. The build, and much deeper story thread is here: https://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=352024

Got my vote ❤️ Simply the pinnacle of Kona ownership and love for the brand. Pip lives through this and all the bikes built with his knowledge and support.
