Kona Dream Builds: Grassroots Cycles Custom Steel Honzo

The crew at Grass Roots Cycles in Grand Junction, CO have whipped up this subtle yet very rad custom steel Honzo for one of their customers. After spying it on their Instagram feed we just had to share the finished build with you. It’s got a little local flavor to it as well as a bit of bling and then some basic get it done functionality.

Being from Grand Junction it would have been rude not to build this bike up with a fork from local company MRP. The Ramp controlled MRP Ribbon fork ads some serious squish up front.

Cable guides on point.

And for the bling, a sultry Deity bar, stem and grip combo. Magura MT7’s keep speed in check, not that brakes are needed out at 18 Road.

We can’t not mention that cable routing, this bike was built with LOVE.

Hand-built DT Swiss EX511’s are shod with set of Maxxis Minion DHRII/DHF’s while up and downness is provided by X Fusion’s reliable Manic dropper post.

Thanks to trickle down tech, this Honzo is running SRAM’s affordable wide range SRAM GX Eagle drive train.
