Jon at Jon’s Bike Repair loves himself a classic Kona Retro Bike. And while this custom decal’d carbon Honzo hasn’t quite made it to the classic steel-filled forums just yet, Jon is hedging his bets that this classic is going to be just as sort after as your 1994 Ti Hei Hei.

We never get tired of Cane Creeks Ewings cranks. It’s not every day you could buy a complete bike for the price of the ti cranks on your bike right?

The drivetrain is a Shimano affair with an XT rear mech keeps things changing smoothly. The wheels are from UK company Hope Tech and are shod with 27.5 plus tires from Maxxis. 

Up front you’ll find a 140mm Cane Creek Helm Air fork.

A Burgtec stem and bar combo spin in a Cane Creek Hellbender headset while Rev suspension grips keep things cushioned just the way David St. Hubbins would want them. Magura MT Trails take care of stopping duties.

And the build is rounded out with a set of Burgtec Penthouse pedals.

The man, the myth, the legend.
