    My Honzo

    I decided to pick up a close out Honzo last week to replace my Niner EMD, first impressions were great super fun bike. So this week I put it on a slight diet.

    Enve bars
    Thompson 70mm stem
    Thompson seatpost
    Sram 1070 cassette
    Sram X9 type 2 midcage derailleur
    Raceface 30t narrow wide chainring
    Raceface bashguard (chain guide removed)
    Continental X King 2.4 tires running them tubeless
    Crank Bros candy pedals

    All this brought the bike down to 28lbs 14oz just slightly lighter less noisy and still very fun.

    I added a few more upgrades recently, mango king headset and bottom bracket, along with an orange narrow wide chain ring. I am also waiting on my mango king hubs on WTB KOM hoops to come in. I hope it isn't to much orange I have mixed feelings about it I think the orange pedals and chainring might be a bit much?

    On mine I went with mostly black accents, only non black accent is some gold Ti caliper screws.

    Yours is well within reason

    I've been trying to source a Mango CK Headset for a while now and was always curious what it would look like, then I came across this thread, and finally happen to stumble across a used one on eBay and won it this morning Looks great man!! The orange is perfect!
