Minneapolis local Denny Royal, like many of you, is a Kona super fan. And as you may have guessed, this beautiful Ti Humuhumu is not Denny’s only Kona, in fact, it’s the third in his fleet. The Humuhumu sits alongside a Process 153 CR and a Honzo CR DL in his garage and completes his Kona family of bikes.

” I wanted to get myself something for my 50th birthday and this frame came to mind. The plan was to build something unique that I could totally have a blast with, putzing from brewery to brewery or connecting some single track in between said breweries. So with that, I set out to get a hold of one of these frames and build it up with my friends at Behind Bars here in Minneapolis. I tried keeping things pretty light but dependable on the build and this is where we ended up. “

We’ve seen a bunch of these Whiskey No.9 carbon MTB forks on a Few Dream Builds and we still cant get enough of them.
