Here's a good place for questions concerning how to build up your ICB2.0. For reference, these are the key specs:

Travel (rear) 130 mm
Travel (front) 130-160 mm
Axle to crown Height 545 mm +/- 15
Tire clearance 75 mm (recommended: up to 63 mm)
Rear-Shock Standard 200 x 57 mm
Shock-Hardware - / 22.2 x 8
Bottom-Bracket BSA 73 mm
Brake-mount PM180
Rear-axle 12x142 mm (M12 metric)
Headset Standard ZS 44/28.6 I ZS 56/40 Tapered
Seatpost 31.6 mm


Here's a pretty fancy build by MTB-News.de editor @Tobias - what will your ICB look like?

I'll build a green ICB 2.0 frame with 90% of the components that are actually on my Kona Explosif:

- 150mm Fox Factory fork (2014, planning to upgrade to 2016 internals or to a 36 if I'll find a good deal)
- Custom wheelset with DRC Bighorn rims/Novatec hubs/orange nipples :) (a little battered, a new, sturdier/heavyer Stans Flow EX wheelset is coming, I'll try both and take a decision which one to keep on the ICB)
- 1x10 Shimano SLX with 29/42 ZetaBike cassette expander/Oneup RadR rear derailleur cage
- Crank Brothers mallet 2 pedals
- ODI EX750 handlebar (750/790 vario size)
- Funn Funnduro stem (60mm but planning to buy the 45mm version or a 50mm from another brand)
- KS Dropzone 125mm dropper post (will upgrade to a KS Lev 150mm)
- Chromag Trailmaster leather saddle
- Chromag grips
- Brakes I just had a gread deal for a new Magura Mt5 set so I'll keep my SLX on the Explosif

Most of my parts are with an orange accent that should match nicely the green frame.

My experience with anodized frames is, that the Color changes with the Color of the sunlight. It is awesome, if the frame looks warmer in the evening, with the last sunlight.
