Kona Dream Build: Fun and Games, Kate’s Hope Tech Equipped Process 153 CR

Yesterday we introduced you to Kate Meyer. Now it’s time to meet her bike a matte black Process 153 CR. Kate rides for Hope Tech Women and those CNC manufacturing wizards have helped Kate build a dream Process, it’s a bike she says is “Hands down the funnest bike I’ve ever ridden!”

Aside from the Deity Components cockpit, everything that can be swapped to Hope has been. Hope’s spiderless chainring is mated perfectly with a set of CNC’d Hope Cranks.

Black Hope Pro4 Hubs are laced to…

… Hope Enduro wheels with black Sapim spokes and brass nipples.

Slowing down, not that Kate does much of that, is done via a set of Hope Tech3 E4 stoppers. These four piston stoppers have a caliper that is cnc’d out of a single piece of aluminum and feature 4x16mm phenolic pistons to give more usable power. The Tech 3 lever also features tool-less bite point and reach adjustment.

And they are kinda sexy!
