Kona Libre DL build

Getting there. Went with an XT 11-46 cassette in the rear and the GRX 812 clears it with room to spare. Took it for a quick spin around the block to check fit before I taped the bars and cleaned up cabling but going to flip the stem. For reference that is a 125mm dropper. Also one of the calipers is being a pain to bleed. Still waiting on my skinwall schwalbe tires from Germany which seem to be coming by barge as it's taking forever.

Very nice bike! What year is the frameset? Didn't know they had a green one.

Finished it. This has probably been my favorite build other than the Kona Rove ST I had before this one. Still waiting on my skinwalls though. Tried to find a hot pink seatpost clamp like the top cap but no go. Also tried to get that limited edition hot pink cane creek 40 headset but also no go. Bike is comfy as hell though.



42t front with 11-46
