Gravity and enduro racer Ryan Gardner has been part of the Kona family for more than 10 years, and over that time he’s built his fair share of dream builds. Today we get to share with you his latest, this bruiser of a Process 134 CR DL, a build is a tasty, no-nonsense speed machine with carbon goodness from e*thirteen, Fox Factory suspension, WTB enduro-mullet rubber, and brakes fit for a 200lb club member (Ryan is 6’4″).

For the drivetrain I set myself up with the tried and true Shimano XT derailure with a 9-46T 11spd e*thirteen cassette paired up with a 34 tooth e*thirteen Guidering SL and 170mm LG1r carbon cranks.

Out the back, you’ll find an XTR 10-51 cassette and a XTR M9100 SGS rear derailleur. 

Suspension is handled by a Fox Factory 140 up front and a Fox Factory DPX2 out back.

Extra excited about this super clean cockpit setup from e*thirteen with an 800mm Race Carbon bar and plus 35mm stem. Some matchy ODI pro grips with the half waffle round everything out nicely.  

LG1r rims with 30mm inner width and matching hubs hold the WTB enduro mullet: A 2.5 Vigilante High Grip Tough casing up front and a 2.5 Trailboss high grip tough casing in the rear. WTB also provides the carbon Silverado saddle. As a big guy, a 203 rotor up front and 180 in the rear is paired with a pair of Shimano Saint brakes.

Finally, this neat fender is made by my friends at Memory Pilot is Santa Barbara California.

OneUp’s 180mm V2 dropper post provides just the ride amount of up/down, while Fabrics Scoop Pro saddle looks after your rear.
