Rob from Vedder Mountain Bike Co in BC’s, Fraser Valley has built this absolutely stunning and pretty damn blinging Big Honzo CR. Rob wanted the bike to showcase the new and current product in his store, and the Cane Creek Helm fork, NOBL wheels and SRAM AXS groupset and Reverb really are a testament to this.

“I have a trials background so use this bike a little around town hopping onto ledges and tables etc and having fun, but the trails on Vedder Mountain is where the bike really feels at home. “

The bling on the Big Honzo really kicks off with SRAM’s XX1 AXS drivetrain and AXS Reverb. The wireless system cleans up the bike, removing all but the bikes brake cables. NOBL’s single walled TR45 Plus rims are laced to Industry 9’s Torch hubs.

Cane Creek’s 140mm Helm fork keeps things tracking true, while Schwalbe’s Nobby Nic (27.5×3.0) tires add a shit ton of traction.
