    Kona Hot Year ID, P2 Fork Question (and WTB)

    Cross post from the 26er Forum:

    First time poster here. I just picked up a Teesdale Kona Hot frame (with that beautifl fluted downtube) on my local CL that came with a 1x1 fork. It's all been repainted, so I'm having a hard time nailing down the year. The bottom shell is stamped TET, so I know it's a Teesdale frame (91-95 I believe). I also tracked down a picture from the previous seller of the frame prior to being repainted, and based on the decals I THINK it's a 1994, though I'm hoping someone here can verify. The frame was cracked at the downtube near the head tube and a builder down in Austin used a gusset to repair/re-inforce that joint. I'm hoping the repair won't affect the ride quality of the bike.

    That said, I'm looking to get a canti-only P2 fork for it rather than use the 1x1 fork it came with. I think the A-C length I'm looking for would be 410, but again, hoping someone can help me verify. If I'm correct on that, does anyone have (or know where I can find) a 1 1/8" Kona P2 Triple Butted fork with a 410 A-C?

    I'm waiting on delivery of a SS Paul 26" wheelset in the next few days which will turn this into a great, light bike for me to ride at the local MTB park with my kid. Can't wait!

    Cool project.

    Mountain Biking magazine did a test on a Kona Hot around 1992. It had a titanium P2 fork, titanium stem and ti bars. Bike was red and built w/ suntour xc pro if i remember correctly.
    WTB: Bomber Z2 1 1/8 steerer, in good to excellent shape OR bomber rebuild kit.
