Kona Dream Builds: Ludwigs Custom Painted Roadhouse

It’s not often that we see Roadhouse Dream Builds, the original Road House was sporting some pretty damn awesome paint out of the bike and didn’t really need a whole lot of upgrading to make it dreamy. But Ludwig has gone and done it!

“I put quite a lot of thought into this build. This is my 2016 Kona Roadhouse – the paint job was designed and carried out by yours truly. It is a bit of a homage to the 2018 Kona Roadhouse, which I could never get my hands on. It is one of a kind. I built up the entire bike by myself. A few parts were carried over from the old build, but a large part are new.”

Amazing custom paint details. 

 Ludwigs Roadhouse is powered by a set of Shimano Ultegra R8000 cranks with a pair of Absolute Black Oval chainrings (46/30), the very bling KMC X11 Ti-N Gold Chain mates to an e-thirteen XCX Plus 9-34 cassette. that funky Seatpost is a Tune Leichtes Stück 27.5 with a Selle SMP F20C s.i. saddle.

 The cockpit is built around a 42cm Zipp SL 70 XPLR handlebar with Supacaz Camo bar tape, the handlebar is held in place by a 120mm Tune Geiles Teil 4.0 stem. It all spins smoothly on a Hope Headset. Shimano 105 levers pull up on Deore XT RT-MT800 rotors.

The bike rolls on a Hunt 44 Aerodynamacist wheelset shod with Pirelli P Zero Race 30-622 tires.
