One of the coolest things about having a bike shop is getting to build your friends the coolest bikes! Tucker, who is one of my best buds decided it was time to step his game up and take his riding to the next level. We looked at what Kona had to offer and decided on the Kona Process 153 CR 27.5 would do the trick! But because we can't seem to ever leave things alone this turned into a dream build that has been turning heads every time it hits the trails! So stoked Tucker trusted the process(...no pun intended) and let me do what we do and built him a bike that had his jaw on the floor!
