Kona Dream Builds: Martin’s mean, Green Dirt Jump Machine

This is one Shonky that is sure to make you quite literally Green with Envy. Martin is a Mechanic at long time Kona Dealer, Mitchell Cycles, and has always been a fan of the Brand. When he got in touch and said that he’d finished putting together what in his eyes was ‘the perfect Shonky’, we had to go check it out.

I mean look at this thing, it just oozes style from every angle! Martin’s build includes Rockshox Reba RL Forks, Hope X2 Rear Brake with the Tech 3 Lever, Gusset 3 Piece Cranks/Half Link Chain, Renthal Bars and those sweet looking Schwalbe Table Top Skinwall Tyres.

As if this Shonky wasn’t cool enough, Martin has also added some rad homemade dust caps and the infamous ‘Punisher’ head badge!
