Mainly just wanted a different color, plus my local PC shop's price was very reasonable.BTW, did you PC just for the color or was it to replace the crappy factory paint like I had to do?
I'd like to see that!I just had my frame powder coated as well; a double coat of flat black. Do you have a line on frame decals by chance? I am waiting on "Joe" to get back with me from Kona on the availability of a factory set.

It's been covered so many times. :crazy:Any suggestions on the proper headset assembly for a tapered steerer on the 2013 frame?

Are you going to be running a 140 or 120 mm fork?Ok, so I've already seen this thread- http://forums.mtbr.com/29er-bikes/switched-out-my-paradox-honzo-yeah-781304-2.html - so I have an idea of what the 16" looks like built up and with an approx. 5'8" person on top of it.
Problem is: it looks small to me any more. I thought I'd settled in on 29ers with ~23" effective top tube length with about a 90mm stem, but since Kona is measuring all their dimensions off of a topped out fork, forgive me for being skeptical that the 16" Honzo will actually ever hit that number when you ride it irl (or, heaven forfend, tune the fork down to a slightly lower travel setting). Seems it would be a bit shorter, both horizontally and vertically.
So here's my question to you all. Is anyone 5'8" riding the Medium Honzo, or have you all just gone for the Small? I'm just a smidgen over that height and have longer legs - my current bike has a bit more than 32" standover topped out - and was planning on building one up from a frame.
