I bought my Kona Explosif in 93 at a discounted price- but I was contemplating a Kilauea as that was what I could afford. The Kilauae was only slightly down from the Explosif as the Explosif is XT but with discount I went for the better bike. That fork you have on it-The Project ll is probably the best rigid fork ever made. Double butted chromoly steel and it does offer some give that other rigid forks do not.
You are right about the TT being long as I am a lot shorter than you and have a 19" It still rides a dream but I No longer have the rigid forks. I went for some Manitou Elastomer suspension and that was when I noticed how good the Project ll's are.
An exceptionally good bike you have and did you know that there is a lifetime guaranty on the frame?
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
