Anyone got a Kona Honzo?
Where did you find the Revelations??? The only 140mm forks i could find were the Reba’s on 29squadron?
Unsure about that headset Dexter as it seems to be zero stack whereas the Honzo takes a zero stack upper and a normal lower one.
I used the Hope pick and mix ones from Merlin which have a 10% discount at the moment up until Valentines day and work out around £54 (bit less if you use quidco etc).
And the frame does come with a qr seatclamp.
Hope your forks are ok, my brand new replacement lowers are marginally better than the first set but the 2.2″ Nevegals still rub so i’m going to have an interesting conversation with Fishers this week…..Posted 6 years ago
Ta for the headset info. Got the frame and fork at Hibike.de for about 900euros which I didn’t think was too bad. There are really low stocks of Honzos across Europe until May and I got one of the last 3 20L frames. A second set of bent lowers is either bad luck or bad qc, hope you get it sorted.Posted 6 years ago
That looks awesome. Loving the white Revelations.
How is the clearance with the lower headset cup (CC40) and the Revelation knobs on the fork leg? There’s been talk on Mtbr.com that the clearance is minimal, or that I might even not clear the downtube with the CC40 and Revelation.
Care to snap a pic of the clearance? I’m building mine next week finally and will be using the same fork (Revelation RLT 140) and the Cane Creek 40 series headset.
Did you weigh it yet? What dropper post are you using?

There is at least 1.5cm clearance between fork knobs and the downtube, I’ll try and take a pic tomorrow. No weight as yet but will do next time I’m in my lbs. Post is an old Crank Bros Joplin that has seen better days but does the job. I know I’m biased but I think it looks awesome, not too much like a clown bike at all!Posted 6 years ago
First month report: Apart from a dodgy bearing in the front wheel I can honestly say that this bike has converted me from 26 to 29 inch wheels. The Enduro hasn’t left the shed and apart from occasionally wanting a bit of squish out the back (saving for SJ evo 29er already) and some gears (anyone selling a 1×10 drivetrain?) this is as quick as the Enduro for most of my SE England riding.Posted 5 years ago
lFinally it’s done!!!
So after an introduction into the “All-Mountain” segment last year and a quick season on my previous bike , I was itching for a new 29er bike, especially one that fit me right, as the Transition TransAM ended up feeling too small for me @ 6’4″. Just a quick ride around the neighborhood tonight on the Honzo and things are looking great this season. :thumbsup:

Under 30 lbs would have been nice, but the last minute component changes were so worth it IMO (the Fox 34 and the Reverb post). And it’s still lighter than my previous bike, so it’s all good!
