So I have a bit of a problem. My wife buys new shoes, I lust after new bikes, bike parts, anything. I buy new bike stuff like she does shoes. Now my problem.
I have two main bikes:
2016 Kona Titanium Honzo (68deg head tube angle/74.5deg seat tube/29er)
2018 Evil Insurgent 150mm fork (66.1 HTA/74.8 STA/27.5)
I like the honzo but love the evil. The suspension and better angles help obviously but I am a pretty big guy (220-230 without gear) and I think I like the smaller wheels for their stiffness and better maneuverability. The Honzo has been on the chopping block since the day I bought it due to it's Taiwanese origins. It's a fine bike and at the time I bought it, it was one of the more forward thinking hardtails out there, but it just doesn't have the details seen on USA made bikes.
Which brings me to the Lynskey Bootleg. Have a look. Would love to hear your opinions.
I love the chainstay details. Love the riveted on headbadge.
73 deg seat tube is a little old school. What do you all think?
