    Explosif Question

    I am seriously considering buying/building an Explosif as I am in need of a fairly inexpensive hardtail. I will run it geared and I am curious about the rear dropouts. Has anyone had any trouble with the replacable dropouts in any way? Is the rear end as tight as a welded frame? And, is there any tendency for things to come loose back there?

    Thanks Kona people.

    I have been riding an 03 for over a year and no problems. I did replace the stock bolts for the hangers with new larger ones. Also every now and then check to make sure the bolts are tight.
