Thank you so much :)

Like the bikes the workshop has been a dream/labour of love as well that makes working on the bikes a lot easier and comfortable.

I used to be a Rockstar Energy MTB athlete and then went on to own the Rockstar Energy UK MTB team for a number of years, so that’s why there’s a lot of Rockstar merchandise in the workshop.

Here’s a bit of a better picture of it...

Thank you.

The company I got the titanium bolts from for this build unfortunately no longer trades, but for my Kona Hei Hei build I’ve sourced all of my anodised black titanium bolts from Pro-Bolt.com
