Kona Dream Builds: A Raijin Ti that’s sure to catch your Eye

If you are a fan of Titanium Hardtails, then brace yourself as this one is set to make you go weak at the knees!

This Raijin Ti 29er Singlespeed custom build was put together for one very lucky customer by the guys at the Kona Bike Shop in the U.K. Rich the mechanic there said that it was ‘built with love’ as he spent hours carefully slotting together the pieces of this pretty awesome puzzle. Only the finest parts were used and the result is most certainly an eye catcher.

Rich also mentioned that the customer wanted a lightweight, simple hardtail and that he was set on it on the Raijin as thanks to the sliding Dropouts, it allowed him to run it Singlespeed.
