awesome builds dude! I see you have at times a rack and fenders. Did you mount them on the same eyelet? Or use p clamps or some other fastening technique? Thanks!

Cheers! Those were in the same eyelets. At least Tubus Fly is fairly easy rack to work with since it's quite adjustable. Probably same thing for many other racks as well.

Gotcha! That is a good tip, might pick this bike up this weekend. What is your favorite setup on it? Stripped and fast? Rack and loaded and slow? Risers and chill?

Good question! I'm not sure. The breakless fixed was fun but a "real" track bike is even more fun. The racked'n'loaded was fun as well and rather fast, but my current Sutra LTD has won me over in this category.

I might say that the current setup is best since it's kinda best of all worlds. I can get quickly to work and pick up a package from a post office on my way home, so that's nice. It would probably be perfect with a little bit more clearance so it could fit 35mms + fenders.

Anyways, it's funny how many different setups you can get out of this without (too big) compromises. I really love this bike and highly recommend it.

I see, thanks for the tips.

Glad to hear you like the Kona. I might have to post some updates on my profile if I get it this weekend!

It's one from our local Biltema (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biltema). If you don't have one in your country, I wouldn't really bother with it since it's really not that good. It gets the job done though.

What's the biggest tyres you can fit on the stock fork and the frame?

32mm Gatorskin / 32mm Panaracer Pasela is the biggest I've managed to fit in the rear. I think 35mm is the limit on the stock fork but cannot confirm that because I don't have it anymore.
