The last time we heard from the crew at The Bike Station in Nelson, New Zealand, they brought some serious heat showing us three epic Process 153 builds. Well, no sooner had the 2020 bikes showed up on their floors than they began a set of fresh builds. This Fox and Deity equipped purple beast of a Process 153 CR DL is the first of the bunch.

You may have noticed that the factory spec on our top of the line Process CR DL models often remains relatively intact when customers are building their dream bikes. Case in point here, where the Bike Station has left the flawless XO1/Decendant drivetrain completly untouched, I mean why would you change it (unless you bleed blue, right)?

Unless you plan on going wireless or are a Shimano super fan, the stock SRAM XO drivetrain is bulletproof, provides precise shifting and doesn’t break the bank when it needs replacing.

Suspension-wise, the stock RockShox suspension has been replaced with a matching set of Fox Factory suspension, Orange 36’s up front and a Float X2 out back.

Deity components feature heavily in the cockpit, with the SRAM controls mounted on Deity Skywire bars. The bar is attached to Deity’s sexy Copperhead stem and rounded off with a set of Deity Knuckleduster grips.
There’s more Deity out back, the saddle is a color-matched Speedtrap and it sits atop yet more Fox Suspension goodness in the way of their Transfer post. The build is rounded out with front and rear Maxxis Assegai’s.
