    Sliding Dropouts with Post-Mount

    Does anyone know if the sliding dropout option (non-driveside) with the 160mm post-mount option is actually available from Kona yet?

    Seen here (Raijin) -
    Kona 2012 & 1/2 titanium frame, the Raijin.


    And here (2014 Big Unit) -

    No one....

    Anyone even own a set of these dropouts, or are these just showing up on prototype frames? Would love to get a set to just clean things up a bit since I'm running a160mm rotor.

    What about a contact phone number for Kona?

    I've had great and quick responses from tech@konaworld.com

    Update - Not available according to Kona. Damn! Finger-crossed that they become an option at some point.
