Kona Bikes has released a new steel frame coming out for 2012 called Honzo 29er, which is a trail and all-mountain hardtail. The Honzo features short chain stays and a slack head angle. Through the short 415mm/16.3 inch chain stays, the Honzo can be run only as a 1×9.

Being teamed up with steel, the Honzo is an ideal bike for the 29er online crew. Kona has used slider drop outs for the Honzo and provided it with singlespeed capabilities. Since the headset is a 44mm variety, the bike can be equipped with a tapered steer tube.

Having a 68° head angle means that it is climbable but not so sharp that it holds the rider back when trail points down. Trail abusive and wildly supple, the 2012 Kona Honzo 29er Bike is one tough machine 29er riders must have.
