Kona Dream Builds: Scott’s mix’n’match single speed Explosif

You’ve got to admit that Scott’s steel Explosif is a little bit of a mix’n’match selection of parts. Nothing really goes together on paper with this build, if you were describing how your old orange ANVL stem was going to look rad, matched up to your blue bars and your purple pedals. Well, you just wouldn’t believe it. But there is something about this build, maybe it isn’t a full-blown dream bike, but damn it if I’m not a bit jealous of just indestructible and versatile this thing is. On one ride you can hit the pump track, go for a trail ride, hell I’m sure you could even wind it back and send it down some classic Vancouver stair gaps on the way home.

An ANVL cockpit an ESI silicone grips keep the bike pointed in the right direction.

Our new Wah Wah PP Composite pedals keep things moving forward…

…While an old XT crankset and North Shore Billet chainring drive the rear wheel.

Almost slammed out the back.

TRP’s Slate T4 four-piston brakes slow this rig down.

Some “re-branded” Fox 32’s suspend the front end.
