I found a good deal on a 888 so the AM bike feels balanced again (thanks Justin). I know these old Konas are a little dated geometrically, but it has done me well for the past ~10 years...
Bill's 24" is close to finished. I wasn't able to make the exact dropouts he wanted. Depending on the hub he's using, he'll have to go without tensioners or use the welded/inner dropout integrated ones.
 An hour of turning a few grinding discs into a breathable powder, only to have a thread tap break off in the hole. Don't ask me to make those BMX dropouts with the internal tensioners. They're heavier and, as I tried to just explain, tapping an inch of tiny diameter/fine threads into a work hardened plate is too risky a procedure.
