If you are a regular here you know Jason Guthrie and his Crew at Chainline Bikes in California build some of the best one-off custom bikes for their customers in the business. Well, today let us introduce you to Blue Steel, one sexy male model of a Process 134 CR. It is in fact only the second-ever Process 134 Dream Build we’ve seen (Miranda Miller’s was the first).
If you are a SRAM fan and you are putting together a Dream Build you are going to be hard-pressed to avoid SRAM AXS. AXS is SRAM’s wireless electronic shifting drivetrain and it ain’t cheap, but a Dream Build it does indeed make. Jason has opted for XO1 version for the Process.
AXS comes as a full drive train groupo hence the carbon SRAM XO1 cranks. The suspension has seen a significant change, the stock Fox DPX2 has disappeared and been replaced with the legendary Push Industries ElevenSix rear shock.
Up front you’ll find Rock Shox revamped 140mm Pike Ultimate fork. There’s nothing that really needs to be said about this fork, we all know it punches well above its weight.
The ENVE cockpit seems to be a go-to for the Chainline crew, this 134 is sporting an ENVE stem mated to their M9 31.8 DH bar. Hope’s flagship enduro brake, the Tech E4 handles lever is a CNC’d work of art.
The Hope calipers are cnc’d from a single block of 2014 T6 aluminum alloy and just ooze radness.
Onza tires are mounted on a set of ENVE M7 carbon hoops build on a set of Industry 9 Hydra hubs.
It’s the little things. Chainline’s custom head badge decal takes pride of place on this epic build.
The svelte wireless SRAM AXS Reverb actuator is just so damn cool.
SRAM’s wireless AXS Reverb makes so much sense. I think I’m gonna start saving.
And the whole thing is propelled by these sweet DMR Vault pedals.
