Is seafoam green or blue? It is a question I’ve often pondered. Google tells me that it’s close to aqua on the color wheel but it has a very different feel to it. Seafoam is a light blue-green with a bit of grey mixed in. The green makes it an earthy, fresh color, while the blue adds a restful quality.

sure isn’t that restful though, to use an often coined phrase, this Hope-covered bike looks fast standing still.
The drivetrain has us intrigued. A Hope set of CNC’d cranks with an oval chainring, an XTR rear mech, and a SRAM Eagle cassette.
Hope is CNC and these cranks really show what the Barnoldswick based company can do.

There’s that XTR shifter…
And the Hope Tech 3 levers.
If you didn’t know, Kona’s cable routing is UK, Australia, Japan, and NZ friendly.
