Miles Trainer needs no introduction (if you want one though, you can check out his My Kona here). The North Tahoe native moved out to Bellingham a few years ago for a taste of real dirt and now suffers a loam addiction. He loves his trails steep, deep and rowdy, and his custom-built Process X definitely reflects that. Let’s dive in.
The drive train is a Shimano affair, a set of Shimano Derore cranks spins on a XT BB.
That’s mated to an SLX 12-speed cassete and a Shimano XT rear derailleur, it’s all wrapped in a 12-speed Deore chain.
Suspension wise ypu’ll notice a bunch of green on this bike. Miles is sponsored by DVO and is rocking the super tunable DVO Onyx SC fork in 170mm.
Out back (or in the middle) you’ll find DVO Jade X coil shock with an adjustable 450-500lb Sprindex coil spring.
Jumping up to the cockpit you’ll find parts from PNW brand Tenet. The stem is the Tenet Nora 35 V2 in 42mm and that clamps a 780mm wide Tenet Bodem C V2 handle bar with 40mm of rise.
Sensus Swayze Lock-On Gum grips keep Miles attached when things get loose, while a Wolfthooth dropper remote activates a 210mm OneUp Dropper post.
Miles utilizes SRAM’s powerful Code RSC brakes for stopping and is sporting 200mm rotors front and rear. And yup, he’s running his Process X in the long setting.
The wheels are a bit of a mix and match affair. The rear wheel is a DT Swiss EX511 laced to a Hope Pro4 hub, while the front is DT Swiss EX1501 rim laced to DT Swiss 240 hub. The rear wheel is shod in a Schwalbe Big Betty Super Gravity 2.4 while the front is sporting a Schwalbe Magic Mary Super Gravity 2.35. A Cushcore looks after the rear rim.
The build is finished off with Tenet Occult flat pedals.
