Never thought I’d try and sell this bike as the frame is lovely, and it was my first proper posh bike. When the gravel thing was emerging I thought I’d give it a new lease of life by creating a gravel bike out of it. Which I did. Which included having the bosses moved so it can take 700c wheels…which has made the handling lively to say the least but I have done some pretty big rides on it, including the first and third Dirty Reivers on it.
Anyway, frame and fork – Kona Explosif and project 2s from 1995, with moved brake bosses.
Wheels are h plus son archetype rims laced on to the original Shimano XT Parallax hubs. Schwalbe G-One tyres.
It’s 1×10. Gevenalle GX lever/shifters. XT mech, cranks and BB. 105 cassette.
Brakes are the original Ritchey Logics now with Swiss Stop pads.
On One Midge bars, Sunline V1 to saddle and USE seatpost from 95 too…this does have a small crack where one of the bolt clamps but it’s had this as long as I can remember.
Included would be some of the original parts including the Velocity stem which is about a mile long, the 9 speed XT mechs and the Kona brake levers.
I am just not using it so thought would see if any interest. May consider splitting. Will happily send more pics if wanted.
I can post at buyer’s expense but would prefer collection.
