    Here`s my 1997 Explosif...

    Totally rebuilt and refinished. I bought this frame online from a guy living in British Columbia, Canada. Every part on this bike came from ebay.

    It had some light indentations that I had filled in with braze. Then I power coated white. What a beautiful finish. I just took it out for a spin last week for the first time. A fantastic riding frame. Smooth, plush and predictable. The SID Race really helps. A great light weight Colombus MAX OR tubed frame. Highly recommended.

    My Stinky Dee

    My name is Jeff, and I ride in the Pittsburgh, PA area. This is my first Kona, but I'm sure it won't be my last.

    My first Kona too.

    '04 Kikapu Frame built with some left over parts and a '03 Marz MX Comp 105mm fork. Still dialing in the suspension though. I'm 205lbs and tried the Float at 190psi but still haven't gotten full travel in the rear after riding some rocky descents in Southern Cali.

    1998 Kona Lavadome frame

    my main xc ride, that i'll keep forever, is a 1998 Kona Lavadome 18" green steel frame (~4.5#). i've replaced everything from that bike, but the cool retro hardtail frame, adorned with many scratches and dents (i use clear nail polish to ward off rust).

    '03 marz mx 105mm eta fork 4.4# (dang, i wish i had known that the '04 mx would have 120mm)
    dave's dream wheels (rear: ust&standard dual rim)
    hope mono mini hydro disk (sweet!) on front (got no rear disk brake boss, don't need 'em)
    avid ti rear brake with sram lever
    mamahon ti seatpost (& thompson alum seats post as backup, 'cause that ti post has bent)
    sel flite gel saddle with ti rails
    chris king headset
    marin xc riser bar with 120mm stem (soon to get Moots stuff...)
    xt hollowtech drive train & shifters
    steel water bottle cage

    total weight = 27#s (not counting saddle bag, H2O, and tire pump)

    picture to be posted...

    wondering if the 2.4" wtb 'weir tire will fit on this frame?


    my next ride: kona stinky or the stinky delux or da santa cruz vp-free...(?)

    2002 Bear Deelux. Got the frame end of last season and built it up.

    Seems to be the only coil sprung Bear/Dawg Deelux out there. I'm a little nervous about switching to air cause I'm a little heavy (200 lbs) and ride real hard. I'm one of those maniacs who accelerates into rock gardens just to see what'll happen.

    Any other maniacs out there on Dawgs have blowouts on the floats?

    My Kona...... best bike ever.

    Fred here, from Canada...

    Here's mine, KONA Caldera 2001. I just finished, minutes ago, the spring upgrade spree!
    Can't wait to ride it tomorrow. 3rd year I'm having this bike and it rocks!

    Upgraded fork to Marz0cchi MX Comp ETA
    Upgraded rear brake to Avid mech.
    Upgraded bottom bracket to XT
    Upgraded wheels/tires to Sun Single Track with Panaracerr Fire XC Pro 2.10
    Removed big gear, replaced with a Blackspire Ring God










    I think I'm in love...

    I have an 03' Stinky Nine frame that's 95% complete. I'll post a pic of it when it's done. I just need a rear through axle to complete it. It'll be sick when it's done!!

    03' Marzocchi Shiver DC

    4 on the floor is OK with me!

    This is my dawg in XC trim (noleen fork, time clipless, superlight wheels, etc), but i'll probably be putting back on all the "Freeride" stuff (stock fork, flats, stock wheels, etc.) for tomorrows ride, though. It has handled everything i want it to up here on the north shore, so i'm pretty happy about that. With the little bit lighter stuff, too, it'll happily handle 5 hour rides and climb ok. Still thinking about getting the rear shock "Pushed", though.

    Hey-
    Finally got a pic of the Bear. Here she is. This is my first FS and I am still not sure the cadillac ride of a FS is for me yet. It is a sweet ride though.

    These are my babies

    The 02 Stinky is black (SE) with an 04 Super T, dangerboy plates, avalanche DHS etc..

    The 02 Bear I just built from the ground up, bought the frame on MTBR of course. Its got an 04 Z1 freeride eta because I broke my 02 DJ1 on my stinky , I' ve got the HFX carbon 9 brakes, ceramic D521/EX 721, a romic rear shock, etc. Its all new cept the frame but for some reason it feels like its barely got any travel, must be too much XC riding on the Stinky

    Hi my name is ADDICT and Im a Konaholic.For those interested in an 04 Coiler,I have a regular Coiler and have had it 6 months, its a great bike but will need to have some parts replaced soon if you ride it hard. I also had an 02 stinky with BETD linkage plates but sold it to buy my current 03 stinky Primo. Kona sure makes some great bikes.

    Here's my ride. Got a smokin deal on the frame, was a limmited edition factory paint, that I got from someone who used to work there. Im looking for a 2.5" riser to stack up the front a little bit.

    cinder cone

    Here's my 2004 cinder cone, all stock exept for the pedals ( I ditched the crappy wellgo for some pd m520 clipless )

    This coming from a 10 years old ultra beaten up stumpjumper, wow I love my new bike, I've had it for 3 months now

    In case your wondering about the ski lift behind my bike, it's not a downhill area, just a small ski hill opened in the winter right downtown with pretty decent xc trails in the summer




    Also, I know it's no good to upgrade for the sake of upgrading if your parts are good but I might have some money to throw on the bike later in the summer, I would like to make it lighter and better gradually, what would you recommend

    - fork
    - crank
    - new disc brake kit
    - wheels

    My 98 Explosif

    I bought this as a frame in the summer of 98 at Doug's Bicycles in Belleville ON. I also have a project 2 fork for it and I plan on trying a SS conversion. I have a 5 Spot but the Explosif gets a lot of use as it is a sweet handling ride. This photo is from a recent trip and yes it's a hotel room and no I'm not telling what I was doing with the bike there, it's private.

    My 2003 Dawg Deelux 18", Had it since last October and loving it. The only thing I've changed so far is the saddle (hated the one that came with it), the grips (ditto), and tires.

    Here's my Blast w/ Cindercone frame. The Blast I received after a long wait had a big dent in the bottom tube. Kona warranty was out of 19" Blast frames, so they sent me a Cindercone frame instead.

    So far I've upgraded:
    • Grips
    • CB Mallet C Pedals
    • Avid Mechs (185 up front 160 in back)
    • Avid SD Ti Levers

    I have a Kona Kahuna as well... an 02 I might add. Walked into a bike store looking for a full-suspension bike after doing some kayaking last summer, and there it was. Took it out for a ride up to the park in the city of Fayetteville, down some trails, handled pretty well, felt good. Came back, dropped 600 bucks on it, and rode away. The only thing I don't like is the rear shock doesn't have a lock-out. It's a little bit heavy, but good enough for Captain Thurmond's Challenge, Black Bear, etc. The only pic I have is an action shot... so:
