Sellwood Cycle Repair in Portland, Oregon has been a Kona dealer since the beginning of time. And as with all long-time Kona dealers, their passion for the brand has resulted in some neat collaborations along the years. Shop owner Erik Tonkin is the namesake behind our Tonk, a steel road bike offering great value and durability.

To celebrate the Honky Tonk’s 10th year, Sellwood is giving away a fresh bike to a lucky recipient by way of a photo contest. Whether you’ve gone far and wide and documented it, or simply rocked around your home town and have a great photo and the story to complement it, here’s your chance to win a brand new Kona. Read on below for contest details…


One of Sellwood’s customers sent through this photo from Russia. It’s a very clean example of a custom Honky Tonk with Campagnolo components. Nice!

  • Photos must be posted to either Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook and tagged with both @SellwoodCycle and the hashtag #10YearsOfTonk.
