Caleb Holonko‘s needs in a bike are a little different to yours and mine. The North Vancouver native, rides faster, launches higher, and sends it deeper than most. He needs a bike that can handle the abuse of daily Shore shredding and his team issue Process X fits that bill. Caleb’s bike is a large 2021 Process X CR frame, he runs it in the short setting “I like my ride to be poppy and nimble, The “X” is very long and fast but paired with the short setting and stiff suspension set up, she flies.”

The drivetrain really does put the dream in dream build. A SRAM XO1 dub crankset connects up via a rainbow-colored XX1 chain to an XX1 AXS derailleur, a rainbow XX1 cassette completes the blinging setup. “Instant shifting is something I’d never imagine owning, I love how quickly I can mash gears and “

Suspension-wise, Caleb is running a MegNeg air can on his Rock Shox Monarch Deluxe, its set up with two Spacers and 195 Psi. “I prefer the feel of an air shock for the terrain I ride, and weight savings.” Up front you’ll find a RockShox Lyrik, again with two tokens and 95 Psi of air “I really like my Lyrik to ramp up quickly and ride high in it’s travel.”

OneUp’s chain guide and a set of HT X2 pedals complete the drivetrain.

Up in the cockpit, you’ll find a Deity Blacklabel bar cut to 777mm (in order to fit between trees and obviously, X-Ups). That is held in place by a 35mm Deity Copperhead stem, and it all spins on a Chris King headset. 

I don’t know how many times we have said it, but its not a dream build without a OneUp EDC tool. 

Red Chris King ISO hubs are laced too…

Both front and rear ENVE M7 carbon hoops are shod with Maxxis tires, an Assegai 3c Double Down at 22 psi up front, and a DHR II with Cush Core and 23 psi out back. “The perfect choice for the steeps of North Vancouver”

Stopping is also a SRAM affair with Code RSC’s mated up with a 220/200 rotor combo. “The most stopping power possible. I love the control that the 220mm Rotor gives my front wheel.” 

ODI Elite Pro grips ensure that “gloves or no gloves, these never let my hands slide.”

A SRAM AXS Reverb keeps the wireless them going and Deity Speed Trap saddle ensures a comfy rear end.
