James Rennie has had a soft spot for our Process 134 ever since he picked up one of the Process 134 Supremes back in 2016. Like a lot of you, he was a little upset when the short enduro travel bike took a small hiatus from our line up over the last couple of years. You can imagine his eagerness to throw a leg over our revised 29″ wheeled Process 134 this year, in fact, he couldn’t wait for the carbon bike to show up and went out and bought himself an alloy Process DL to make his own.
And how did he make it his own? Well, being a Shimano fan, he swapped the rear mech from a 12 speed SRAM GX setup to an 11 speed Shimano XT system, the SRAM NX cranks survived the cull. Wheel wise he’s gone a set of custom We Are One Agent rims from the Kamloops, BC-based company. The rims are laced to Industry Nine 101 hubs.
Up front, he’s swapped out the 140mm Pike for a 150mm Lyrik Ultimate. James is not a fan of the 35mm bar standard and to that end is rocking probably the raddest 31.8 bar and stem combo ever. A Thomson Elite stem mated to a matching Thomson Elite handlebar
While there is nothing wrong with the stock SRAM Guide R brakes, James is an ex-World Cup DH racer and likes to go fast. SRAM Codes with 200mm rotors were more fitting for the speeds this bike reaches.
