Kona Humu

It's a simple bike with big fat tires, a sturdy steel frame and some cruiser bits and pieces for good measure. The Humu from Kona has a double triangle frame with a sloping top tube that reminds me of the Worksman Newsboy. Those tires are Kenda 26 x 2.3!

This bike is more for fun around town or on the trail than anything else. It's Kona's answer to the Swobo Folsom in many ways. If the Folsom is the tatoo-clad bar hopper then maybe the Humu is more the surfer on the way to the bonfire party.

Bike Art of BFROU

This is entitled "Freewheeling" by Blanca Gomez. I stumbled across it today and I wanted to share. It makes me want to put on a cyan fedora and take a ride.
