Couldn't live with that color scheme on a dat to day basis.

I just don't understand taking Orange's entry level aluminium frame and covering it in all of this expensive jewellery!
I did try and qualify (on insta) why the owner bought this frame and not as P7 which would have complimented the component choices nicely (not the colour) and I genuinely think that he bought the frame because of the colour.
Let's face it, a harsh Aluminium HT frame (as the Crush is) is still a harsh aluminium frame regardless of components......

Personal preference I suppose.

Would look really nice with just the purple hubs, the rest of the bits black, not really into those flashy colored rotors much either. Yep personal preference.

Wow, that is beautiful. But why isn't there a red Lyrik on there?

Might work but maybe to matchy matchy.

That’s a lovely put together kona. The little silver is a big win..

Yep, super well done, down to the insitu photos. Didn't realize how many graphics were on it. Kona should hire this person, cause their bikes always look super lame on the site
Yeah me neither till this photo... I am liking it, war paint.

Will try to remember this, as I wanted the red Lyrik when I get a Honzo ESD

Might work if you repaint it in the same red and put white decals on it...

Anyone have recs for a modern-geo hardtail frame that's non-boost? I'm looking to build something that will be compatible with my current 27.5" wheelset. Or a mullet.

Honzo and just run the smaller wheel out back to slacken the HTA? Chromag wideangle?

Just get a boost hub and re-lace your old rims to it. If you don't know how to build a wheel, learn! It's a vital skill if you smash rims/spokes regularly. I think I laced my first wheel in middle school.... Has been a valuable lesson I've used over and over ever since.

Or, see if you can get boost adapters for the rear hub. If it’s a DT or Hope hub I know it’s possible to swap endcaps and use a rotor spacer.

I believe most the Stantons come with swap out dropouts so you can run either , just have to have the non boost swap out.
