    I think they were super special edition or something. Sweet frames though.

    Ho Chi Min

    hi there, i think i can answer you question! as i have a 2003 Kona Ho-Chi-Min.

    The ho-chi-min was made specially made a bike shop called Freewheel Cycles in Jasper, Alberta, Canada. The model i have was made for there 20th anniversary. I beleive they are used as hire trail bikes for visitors to the Jasper area of the Rockies.

    I bought mine whilst on holiday/riding in the rockies as it has a sweet paintjob, was quite rare and about half the price we pay for konas in England.

    I have pretty much added a new upgrade every month. I now have m555 hydraulic brakes with goodridge hoses as the old mechanical brakes aren't that good.

    take a look at http://www.pinkbike.com/modules/phot...w&image=456132

    cheers tom

    I checked some of the other pictures as well and I must say it's a beautiful and very well put together bike. I can't really trust my monitor ,cause it's dark and all ,is that the same color that the 03 (or was that 02?) Dawg has ?

    Ho chi min

    the colour is just slightly darker than the front half of the 03 dawg.

    i have seen pics of a special edition Stuff SE that is almost identical -

    it's a sweet bike, perfect for most riding styles.
