Kona Dream Builds: “Probably The Best Kona 2013 Stinky 24 Ever Built “

It’s a bold claim, right? That was the first line in Anthony Lonsdales Kona Dream Build submission. After taking one look at the bike though, we’d have to agree with him… I mean really, if you know of a more high-end Stinky 24 then we HAVE to see it. Anthony has cut absolutely zero corners building this DH destroyer of a rig! Let’s dive into the build.

This mini DH sled is propelled by a set of 152mm cnc’d Hope Cranks spinning on a Hope BB. An MRP Chain Guide handles chain retention duties. Out back, shifting is taken care off with a Shimano Saint 10 speed rear mech. And we can’t ignore that shock. Anthony has machined the rocker to accept a Fox Float CTD 190×50 and of course, it’s been custom tuned for a lighter rider.

And why not match that Fox out the back with some more Fox up the front? A set 2017 Fox 36s keep the front end tracking true. The fork is a 26″ model custom tuned by Fox to 140mm. Oh those 20mm axle bolts, Ti, in fact every bolt on the bike has been swapped out for Ti hardware.

And what Dream Build is not fully Dream worthy without Chris King hubs. Anthony’s Stinky 24 is sporting Blue Chris Kings ISO hubs front and rear.

Shimano XTR stoppers for keeping things under control.

Those Chris King hubs are laced to probably the most modest aspect of the build, a set of 24″ Stans Flow MK3 rims. Tire choice is a 24 x 2.35 Schwalbe Hans Dampf up front and a 24×2.4 Fat Albert up front.

The bling just keeps coming. The cockpit features a Renthal Fatbar carbon cut to 710mm, it’s clamped in place by a 31mm Renthal apex stem which sits in a Hope E2 headset.

So have you seen a nicer or a more blinging Stinky 24″ bike, If so lets see it!
