    Kona Explosif- convertible to 135mm rear hub spacing?

    Just wondering. I run a CK SS Hub and I do not believe the hub can be converted to 142mm so I was wondering if anyone was aware if the frame has a swappable drop-out like the Trans-Am. Looked on the Kona website and I did not see anything.
    I guarantee I will never, ever be accused of bringing sexy back...

    Yes. You can buy new dropouts directly from Kona to run 135 SS or 135 w/derailleur hangar. The hanger style is CC.

    Looks like so (at least for 135 SS drive side) Kona Unit Honzo CC DS Drive Side Sliding Dropout 135mm with Bolts | eBay

    I'd link you the Kona store site but it's down until Nov 7 for upgrades.
