You may have seen this insanely dreamy Process 134 CR DL pop up over on VitalMTB earlier this week. Well, we thought it was time we gave you a repeat viewing as it’s just that nice. The bike belongs to, Mark Overby from Back Alley Bikes in Carborro, NC (who are no strangers to building Kona Dream bikes). A few elements have stayed from the complete bike’s original spec, but mostly this is a ground-up rebuild, centered mostly around a switch from SRAM to Shimano XTR. Back Alley bikes sharpshooter Jared Harber has given us an epic gallery to get lost in, so don’t waste any more time and check this bike out in more detail!
One of the few originally spec’d items that has remained is the rear suspension. The RockShox Super Deluxe perfectly compliments the 134 and is custom tuned to the bike.
Shimano’s new 12-speed XTR M9120 cranks in 165mm length propel this spritely bike along with a 32t XTR chain ring.
Out the back, you’ll find an XTR 10-51 cassette and a XTR M9100 SGS rear derailleur.
Industry 9 appears to be quietly (or not so quietly) taking over the world and almost all east coast dream builds we see are sporting these amazing hubs. Mark has gone for the Hydra laced to…
Industry 9 Trail 27 alloy rims. They are shod in Maxxis Dissector 29 x 2.4 front and rear. The fork is a Pike Ulitmate but unlike the spec’d 51mm offset fork Mark has opted for the 42mm offset version.
How sexy is that stem?
Lizard Skins Charger EVO grips look after the bikes contact points
OneUp’s 180mm V2 dropper post provides just the ride amount of up/down, while Fabrics Scoop Pro saddle looks after your rear.
More XTR goodness. Braking, like shifting, is a Shimano affair for Mark.
And finally, the whole bike is propelled by OneUp’s alloy pedals.
