I have a singlespeed 2013 Kona Explosif that I really, really love, but it is heavy for a singlespeed at 24lb to 26lb depending on the parts and tires I am using. I'm going to have a custom builder make a titanium version for me with a slightly tweaked geometry, and I'm contemplating some upgrades. I'm enamored with most of the build, but I am looking for advice on some of the components. I definitely don't want to sacrifice any durability or ride quality, but I am willing to spend some money.
