Kona Dream Builds: Miranda Miller’s Team Issue Operator CR

A few weeks back we showed you the team issue Process CR DL. Well, today you get to see Miranda Miller‘s absolutely drool-worthy team issue Operator CR. This is the build that Connor Fearon and Miranda will be racing this season, Connor at every round of the World Cup and Miranda at select DH events. And speaking of select events, the bright Boxxer red Operator will be making it’s debut this weekend at the Pro GRT in Port Angeles underneath Miranda.

What’s in Cory Wallace’s Messkit?

Trevor Browne of Messkit Magazine (and also a Kona Ambassador!) took the time to interview our marathon-man, Cory Wallace about his adventuring and what exactly fuels him on his trips. Cory relies on a wide array of foods and powders to make it through his mega expeditions. He also loves to sample the local street foods in the exotic countries where he rides.
