    A previous post from someone at/near Kona said the post mount dropout is coming very soon. Kona already stocks them (in black) on their Big Unit, so I'd guess its just a matter of manufacturing.

    I'd imagine it's for chainring/tyre clearance due to the short stays
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Does anyone know where to order that frame, what are the geometry specs (sizes), prices, etc. No info on this at Kona's web site, and the dealer listed on their dealer page located nearest me, hasn't heard of it.

    here's what I did:


    MF, Is that a PF adapter with a GXP BB in it? (I'm a novice at this stuff) Do you know if this would work with a ONE DOS from White industries? I am guessing I would I need their BB
    White Industries BB
    and then their crankset...the double/double at the bottom of this page:
    White Industries D/D cranks

    Then, what was your solution for the rear brakes?

    TIA, and sorry for hijacking...

    That is a SRAM adapter that converts a PF30 to a "normal" english-threaded bottom bracket.

    If you mean the IS/PM "issue" it wasn't really a problem... I just don't like the silly 4-bolt caliper mounting since brake manufacturers standardized calipers on PM (good move). The frame this build came off of was IS, so I just bolted it up.
    As soon as a PM slider is available I'll be all over it. I'm probably going to explore the Canfiled option if it takes Kona too long.

    Put my order in today, paid deposit. It should arrive late in the Summer I guess. Enough time to start buying parts.

    Here's my build.

    Still want to add a few things here and there on it. I'm looking at the Lynskey ti post. Also Thomson has finally released their ti handlebars so I'll be looking into those as well.

    Raijin

    I also have an 18" Raijin on order. Dealer tells me it will be end of June or early July arrival. Was planning on building another Unit but decided I wasn't getting any younger and the dream bike time is now.

    I've got 6-8 weeks to draw up a components list and get it all bought. Going to start with a Fox squishy, and it will be a SS.

    LOVE seeing the pics of the builds, keep 'em coming!

    Let's see 'em!
    Here's another shot of La Supra.



    Took her up to the shop for demos and to spread some sponsor beer love... ended up putting some real grips on. My ESI experiment didn't go well. Don't know why I bothered.


    That second photo is well-buzzed, iPhone junk... just wanted one with the Ourys.

    She feels fantastic on the trail. Still feeling her out but diggin' it all the way.
    Major kudos to Kona and Lynskey for this project.


    Next up is Nancy wides in UD matte.

    Nice.
    What issues did you have with the ESI's?
    They are my all time favourite grip (and Oury's are my all time least favourite).

    PS, ignore Fo.
    He is from California, you know.

    Hands slipped twice.
    Done deal.
    Ourys are like bubble gum.

    Yep, also hate ESIs--they compress all the way down to the bar practically, and weren't very grippy.

    For larger hands like mine, the lock-on rogues are great (not as gushy as the non-lock on) but a lighter option that works really well are the thickish, dual density Specialized grips.

    Nice bike MF.

    That's a great looking bike MF.

    And good advice on the Esi grips, I've been meaning to pick up a pair but just can't commit. But I've been lately finding the ODI Rogue and Ourys lock-ons a bit much and just installed some ODI SDG lock-ons, hopefully these will be better. They are between the Ruffians and the Rogues.

    no-nonsense trail build [20" Raijin]

    After an initial street ride last night, I think the fork at 120mm may work out nicely. Steering seemed sufficiently responsive, front-end felt adequately weighted, and the 12.7" BB is hardly too tall for my uber-rocky trails. 110F heat predicted tomorrow but will ride anyway.

    Looks great. Driveside pic please! How did the E13 bb/crank install go? I've heard bad things.

    Thanks. My shop installed the crank/BB. The mechanic's only mention of it was to tell me how much he liked the crank and had decided to buy one for himself. Did you hear the install is tricky, or that reliability issues insued afterwards?

    The xloc remote needs a longer hose especially now that I've moved a second spacer below the stem and plan to get a wider bar (711mm somehow felt narrow today). Great bike and fits great. Just what I wanted.

    How are getting on with your Raijin?

    I'm hoping to get one and will build very similar to yours
