    Kona Exponent Expedition Touring frame-Dedacciai



    http://www.konaworld.com/frames_landing.htm

    The rack mounts look really sturdy and it takes disc brakes too. Probably easy to use a Rohloff on this frame. Online for 499. Not bad compared to comparable frames.

    The rack mounts look the same as on the Kona Sutra. They cracked off on my Sutra, as well as on the frame another member of BF. Kona tech support said that I shouldn't carry more than 20kg on my rack......

    It does look kickass, shame about the wimpy lower rear rack brazeons.

    Looks cool. I wonder about the front derailleur BO... A clamp-on offers a bit more versatility for gearing/crankset.
