After a bit of an unscheduled hiatus, Kona Dream Builds are back. We are kicking things off with a 2016 Hei Hei Trail DL from Germany. In fact, it’s Rock Dog Cycles owner Stefan’s personal rig.

He’s had it since it first arrived in his shop back in April 2016 and he’s been slowly customizing it ever since, this first upgrade was immediate, replacing the bikes rigid post by adding a KS Integra dropper post to the mix.

Next up Stefan added a fresh new wheelset, Halo Vapor rims laced to a set of classic Hope Evo Pro4 hubs.

More Hope bits have been added in the way of Hope super sexy CNC’d crankset and a set of Hope Tech3 E4 Brakes with 200/180 rotors.

Rounding out Stefan’s customization of the Hei Hei Trail DL is a Sixpack Racing Millennium Carbon handlebar and a Raceface Atlas Stem.
