“My – Go to – do everything – can’t help but bring a smile to your face bike has risen from the Ashes as Barney the dinosaurs love child. After 2 years of Ab-use it was long Overdue a refresh so I decided to start from the ground up and give it the love it deserves.
Kona Ambassador Graham Beaumont’s custom painted Big Honzo CR DL has treated him well over the years. It’s been featured here before, but like a proper phoenix it’s back! Thanks to fellow ambassador Ben Gerrish for the photos.
It’s a keeper.” -GB
No purple bike is complete without the dreamy SRAM taste-the-rainbow oil slick chain. This sits aboard a Shimano 12-speed cassette.
Graham kept the classic Kona sasquatch icon on his seat tube.
The frame is rolling on a purple Hope Forts 30 wheel set. Brakes are also by Hope-their E4 model.
The 180mm dropper is held in place by a hand-polished Kona seat clamp. Gotta love those little extra details!
That’s a stealthy-looking cockpit there, bud.
Purple MK5 Burgtec pedals sit on SRAM 170mm carbon cranks.
Graham trimmed the seat tube for max dropper insertion. He has a stern warning, kids. “Don’t try this at home.” (Also it most definitely voids your warranty, so seriously, do not try this at home.)
