Scott Mackay shouldn’t be a new name to you, we’ve featured our Western Canada rep a few times recently in video. A wee while back we featured him in a My Kona video here, and more recently we have featured him, alongside his riding buddy Caleb Holonko, in a video showcasing Kona’s adoption of the infamous North Shore trail Boogie Nights. When our 2021 Team Process X frames showed up in Canada a few weeks ago, there just happened to be an unclaimed frame, Scott quickly claimed it and put together the parts for possibly the quickest dream build of all time.
Scott loves a coil and opted for RockShox Deluxe Ultimate Coil with a 450lbs spring. Drive train wise, up front he’s sporting a set of SRAM X01 cranks with a X01 Oil Slick Rainbow chain. Our Wah Wah II pedals round things out.
The rear end is anchored with a SRAM AXS X01 rear derailleur and a 10-50t X01 rainbow cassette. Scott is running his Process X in the short setting. The wheels keep things in the SRAM family and are Zipp 3Zero Moto Carbon hoops with Tire Wiz.
Damn, how good do those hoops look? Scott has opted for OneUp’s 170mm V2 dropper.
Braking is a SRAM affair and Scott has a set of special edition red team issue Code Ultimate brakes complete with custom-named carbon levers. Out back he’s rocking a 180 rotor and up front a 200.
It’s not what you know, its who you know. Scotts buddy Fraser from Snik has been developing an anti bike theft GPS tracking system that fits in the steerer of mountain and road bikes. Scott is part of the test team and has an early rapid prototype of the system installed on his Process X. You can find out more about Snik here.
We’ve refined our cable routing even further on the X and while Scott doesn’t even need the holes, it’s good to know that whether you ride normal or moto, clean cables are easy to install.
The build is rounded out with a set of 170mm RockShox Lyrik’s and a full Kona cockpit, well all except for that Chromag Lynx saddle.
