  • Kona Cromoly Butted Frame/Kona Cromoly Retro Road Fork
  • Shimano Tiagra/Sora 9-speed drivetrain

It's a real favorite among the Kona USA staff, all of whom make a point of riding to work rain or shine. And that's saying something when you live in the very wet Pacific Rain Forest that surrounds Ferndale, Washington. The bike is the vision of longtime Factory Team Kona rider and Portland, Oregon shop owner Eric Tonkin, who wanted a Paddy Wagon with gears. The Honky Tonk comes with a Shimano rear derailleur and WTB Freedom rims. Sensible and affordable. Sometimes you don't need to be fancy.
