Kona Explosif Likes to Party!

$1200 USD
Get back to your roots with a steel hardtail....but still hang with your riding buddies. This little honey loves to get rowdy on the trails. Amaze your full suspension friends by hanging with them on the descents without breaking a sweat, then climb back up with ease! But seriously, this bike does great on the trails and is really fun to ride. Modern geometry by Kona makes it a very capable bicycle in a discrete package Originally purchased as a frame and built up in 2016 with carefully selected parts. Side note: This is the only bike in my fleet that I can wheelie for long stretches at a time. Something about the geometry makes it really good to ride wheelies with. ++SPECS++ Steel frame, size Large, 27.5 wheels BEEFY 2016 Fox 36 Float fork in excellent condition, not a lot of miles. Set to 130mm travel. New tires and recent brake upgrade to SLX with 180mm rotors front and rear. 1x10 Shimano XT drivetrain with OneUp 40 tooth rear sprocket conversion New-ish Boost front wheel with stan's rim and XT hub (was custom built for the bike when I installed the Fox fork) Sealed Cane Creek headset KS Dropper post (seat has a small amount of side to side play from the post, but doesn't bother me at all). I recently (last December) upgraded to the Fox 36 fork. Fork was rebuilt at this time because the travel reducing spacer needed to be installed. Work done by my LBS. This fork also required a new Boost front wheel to be built. So I had them build up a fresh wheel with Shimano XT hub and Stan's rim. At this time I also upgraded to the SLX brakes and installed new rotors front and rear. This little refresh cost over $800!! No frame damage or any weird shady shit, she is solid and ready for more trails than I can throw at her. Everything works great, ready to ride. Always stored indoors and cleaned after every ride. This has been my favorite mountain bike, even more than my full squish bikes. But life beckons and I have to throw money at other problems. Bike will be professionally packed and I will split the cost of that charge with you. My LBS quoted $50 to box a bike. Buyer responsible for paying shipping. I use a UPS ground commercial account and will send tracking. Recently sent a bike to Texas and shipping cost was $220 (for example). Sorry I can't do less than $1200 on this bike.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
I would upgrade something that would make my lower back not hurt on my Kona Process. All my other bikes my back is fine, but that bike it just kills me. So maybe I need a professional fit.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
@steelpolish: I can answer your question. Priorities. I prioritize my family over my riding. So when I am not at work, it is family first...and with 2 active young kids, it is VERY time consuming. Sure, I could say "f-it" and go riding after work everyday, but I would soon be divorced and the kids and I would grow farther apart. This may change when they are old enough to ride too, but until then, it's family first and I dont regret that.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 AMP Research B2
My riding buddy in the 90's had an AMP fork. He anodized all the parts of it purple and had the lower legs custom painted to match his frame. In a cross country race on Mount Hood (oregon), he went over minor jump and the fork bottomed out and exploded apart, sending him to the ground. It was RockShox Mag 21 after that. That is about all I remember about that fork.
