Kona Dream Builds: The Colour Purple, Deirdre’s Libre

Having a husband who obsesses over every aspect of every single bike build is always going to result in a cool bike and despite only subtle upgrades,  Deirdre’s cute little 46cm Libre is no exception. Deirdre has somewhat of a lighter touch than her husband and to that end, she has left the Ultegra drivetrain and brakes in place, but she’s swapped out the wheels and tires as well as tweaking a few of the key contact points on the bike.

How about those hoops? The wheels are Reynolds Assault ATR 650b wheels. The deep profile and stealthy appearance look so good paired with the Libre’s epic paint job.

The 650b carbon Assault ATR’s feature a 23mm internal width and the whole wheelset weighs in at 1615grams.

The wheelset is shod Panaracer’s hugely popular gum wall Gravelking SK’s

The Reynolds Allroads hub is CNC and engages every 10 degrees, that’s 36 points of engagement.

The cockpit has been swapped out for Easton’s EA70 AX bar and a Race Face stem.

Crank Brothers Stamp 3 pedals come in two platform sizes and given Deirdre’s smaller feet shes running the um… smaller ones…

The Thomson elite seatpost and Fizik Vesta seat round out the subtle build.
