Kona Dream Builds: Joey’s New Old Hei Hei Race

Joey wanted to build a super lightweight but fun cross country race bike and no, that is not a oxymoron. What it is in fact, is our Hei Hei Race bike. “This bike exceeds all my expectations!”

“I’m pretty good at keeping “old” parts working great for years. Most of the parts were transferred over from another bike and nothing is new. Bike racing on a budget can sometimes be tough but I like the challenge.” The weight of Joey’s complete new old Hei Hei Race? 20.09 lbs.

The bike is propelled by a well-loved set of Shimano 959 XTR pedals mounted to a SRAM XO crankset, a KMC X11SL chain in gold and a classic 11 speed SRAM XX1 rear derailleur (and shifter).  It rolls on Stans Valor wheels with Schwalbe Racing Ralph rubber.

The Reduce/Reuse/Recycle ethos continues in the cockpit, with a 700mm Truvativ Stylo bar, a 70mm Ritchey pro stem (in -30º), SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes and Lizard Skin DSP grips, all that is connected to a set of Fox’s 32 Stepcast forks.

Joey sits on a Velo Angel carbon saddle attached to a Woodman carbon seatpost.
