Ti Tuesday: Travis Switzer’s life changing Ti Honzo

It’s good to know that sometimes you can have a positive effect on people. I mean we didn’t set out to change lives with Ti Tuesday but this weeks bike, well we did just that. Travis Switzer was just a normal Kona owner until he started to get inspired by all the Ti Honzo’s we’ve been featuring on the Cog. Now he’s a Ti Kona owner. We did that, Kona can be the change. “I got my inspiration to buy the bike from the all the sweet Honzos you’ve featured lately.”
