    Kona The King frame


    I'm currently deciding to ditch my steel hardtail for a 4.4lb short-travel 05 The King frame.. was wondering has anybody tried one? Any opinions? Also if it's ok to set it up with a 100mm fork even though the rear's only 2.5" travel?

    I think a 80mm fork would suit that frame a bit better unless you want to increase rear travel - not sure if that can be done.
