Kona Dream Builds: Mike’s Featherweight Big Honzo CR Punches Above its Weight

This featherweight 21 pound XC race weapon of a Big Honzo CR is Mikes second bike to be featured here on the Cog, his last one was one of the coolest Libre’s we have seen, and it seems with this Honzo CR he’s followed suit nicely. Ignoring the fact that there’s no dropper post (to each their own right), Jason from Chainline bikes has ensured that this bike ticks some pretty damn classic dream build check boxes. Enve stuff everywhere? Yes. Hope brakes? Yes. DT Swiss 350’s? Yes. XX1 Eagle? Hell Yes. Is there anything you’d change on this incredible build?

How rad is this front end, Fox Factory Float 34’s forks, DT Swiss 350 hubs mated to 29″ ENVE M525 Hoops which are shod with Goodyear’s new Escape Ultimate tires.

Hope X2 brakes with Race levers provide stopping power.

They are mounted on ENVE M5 bars and a ENVE M6 31.8mm stem. Cane Creek’s classic 110 headset keeps things turning smoothly.

XX1 Eagle. Nuff said.

DAMN…
