Jim Brown is no stranger to the Kona family. He’s been a part of Kona racing history for decades and was recently profiled in our Finding Freedom story that spread far and wide.

Jim’s story goes beyond his love and passion for cycling. Jim is a Coast Guard veteran, Captain of the Olympia Fire Department and also battling stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. When Jim’s fight with cancer stole his ability to bike, he never thought he’d ride again. Fortunately, the eBike has given him his freedom back. This is Jim’s story.
