Default 1990 Kona Explosif daily

Well, seeing as my Yo is now totally stripped down and awaiting respray and rebuild (hopefully by summer!), I thought I'd post a few pics of my 1990 Explosif daily that got finished and maiden ride today...

I know there's a lot of negative feelings against Konas, but this rides really nicely - sharp, flickable, and only a little whippier than the Yo...

Hope you like!
