Australian Kona Ambassador Mark Wilson has owned this jaw-dropping 27.5 Process 153 CR DL for the last five months and has loved every minute of their relationship. Working at Kona dealer Cycle City gave him the opportunity to build his Ultimate Dream Bike. “It definitely turns a lot of heads and starts a lot of conversations and I wouldn’t change a thing on it!”
Very few items have been left stock on Mark’s Process, the SRAM cranks, front chainring and rear derailleur being some of the items, the cassette and chain have both been swapped out for XX1 versions. The stock Rock Shox Super Deluxe rear shock has been replaced with a Fox Float X2 shock (3 tokens, 200psi).
The bike is rolling on Praxis AL32 rims laced to Industry 9 Hydra hubs in turquoise. Up front you”ll find a Maxxis Assegai EXO, Max Terra 3C with 26 psi and out back a Maxxis DHRII EXO+, Max Terra 3C Rear with 30 psi. The RockShox Lyrik RC2 Charger 2 is stock, Mark is running it with two tokens and 84psi.
The cockpit is comprised of mainly ENVE parts with an 800mm wide Enve M70 bar mounted to Enve’s M70 stem in 35mm length. Braking is courtesy of SRAM’s powerful Code RSC brakes. ODI Flow Elite grips round things out.
And the build is wrapped up with an SDG Fly Saddle sitting atop the bikes stock RockShox Reverb dropper with 1x remote lever.
