When you upgrade from a 2019 to a 2020 Version of the same bike, it truly must be love. That’s exactly what it was when Kona UK Rider James ‘Bart’ Bartholomew first saw the all new 2020 Prism Purple-Blue colourway. . and do you blame him?!

Bart is an avid 29er fan and coming from a Motocross background, he is all about the speed. That said, he is one stylish dude and certainly knows how to throw some shapes on his Process.

Bart’s build is mostly stock, with just a few tweaks to make it his own. First and most noticeable is the custom tuned Coil Shock from the guys at TF Tuned. He was running a red spring on his 2019 CR/DL but decided that stealthy black would be best on the ‘Purple Rain’

Other additions include the Raceface Next Carbon Handlebars, Fabric Saddle/Grip combo and gold Sram 12 speed chain to tie in with the Purple & Gold Theme.

Bart chose to keep the stock additions to the 2020 Process 153 CR/DL which include the awesome new DT Swiss/WTB Wheelset & Maxxis Assegai Tyre – A popular choice for most Enduro Riders in the UK.

In order to protect the super trick paint job, he also got it professionally sorted by the guys at Invisframe.
