Being a long time BMX rider, Jeremy was on the search for a fun and practical hardtail that would suit his riding style. His friend Simon at Passion Vélos in Trois-Rivieres, QC pointed him to the Honzo, and Jeremy’s imagination got moving. The Honzo’s short chainstays and progressive geometry appealed, but it was the raw finish on the Honzo frames that sealed the decision:

“Having stripped the paint from more BMX frames than I can remember over the years, the aesthetics of the Ti Honzo were very appealing to me. There’s something about raw metal that is just so pure, sleek and timeless.”


Jeremy built his Honzo with a Fox Float 34 fork and the new Fox Transfer dropper post, and kept things clean and simple with a Shimano XT 1×11 drivetrain. His BMX background is evident in the Eclat pedals and Sensus grips, and the Chromag cockpit is on point.

“This bike feels amazing. I’m stoked to see where its wheels take me over many years to come.”

Us too, Jeremy. Thanks for sharing.
