Tanner Pare of our Canadian office just built up this sweet Process 153 DL 29! He wanted to build up something special since it’s his first staff bike and boy is it ever! Let’s take a closer look…

The first thing Tanner bought for the bike was the drivetrain. Earlier this year he got a new road bike that had electronic shifting and won’t ever go back, so he had to have the SRAM GX Eagle AXS 12-speed wireless electronic drivetrain. You’ll find that paired nicely with a GX Eagle 10-50T cassette and GX Eagle 12-speed chain. 

To finish off the drivetrain, you’ll find a pair of SRAM GX carbon cranks (175mm) with a 32T chain ring. For pedals, this is the third bike that Tanners Shimano XT trail pedals have seen, and he loves them. He’s also got some OneUp flat pedals for days at the bike park.

When Tanner found out he was getting a yellow bike, he immediately knew to pair it with a red fork, and what better red fork to get than a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate? This bike is rolling on Bontrager Line Carbon 30 rims paired with Bontrager Rapid Drive 108 XD hubs and an Assegai 29×2.50 up front and a DHR II 29×2.40 on the rear.


Tanner kept the stock Rock Shox Super Deluxe Select + because he’s happy with it for now, but may upgrade in the future. He also runs a WTB Volt Race saddle and a PRO alloy R side access bottle cage.

Tanner picked up OneUp carbon bars with a 35mm rise and the OneUp grips, paired with the Race Face Turbine R stem. To round things out in the cockpit Tanner has a OneUp EDC tool for all his trail tool storage needs.

To complete this build, Tanner is running a OneUp V3 Dropper lever with 210 V2 Dropper which is essential for his long legs.
You’ll find him ripping around on this yellow rocket in and around North Vancouver!
