Australian DH and Enduro pinner, Timmy Eaton, is no stranger to Australian podiums. In fact just this weekend he rode this exact dream build to the win at the Thredbo Super Enduro, beating a stacked field in the (on the) process. As you’ve probably noticed, Tim’s Process 153 CR DL 29 is pretty damn dreamy, but those top-end SRAM, ENVE, and Deity parts are all there for a reason. “After finishing 26th in pro men at the Tasmanian EWS last year (with a couple of top 10 stages) I wanted to build a nice solid and reliable enduro race bike for the four EWS rounds that I’m going to do later this year. My 2019 Process CR DL 29 was awesome but this time I wanted to go all out with the absolute best of everything”
By all-out we are talking a SRAM XO1 AXS drivetrain, ENVE M6 rims, and Minion DHRII tires and…
… a Chris Kovarik STFU chain silencer combined with and E13 TRS bash guide. The rear Rock Shox Ultimate shock also has had the Meg Neg Air Can upgrade.
Oh those ENVE M6 hoops, well those are laced to a set of Industry 9 Hydra hubs. Stopping is thanks to a set of sweet SRAM Code RSC brakes and that’s a 200mm rotor out the back, Tim is rocking a 220mm one up front.
Yes, those forks do look a little longer than normal, good spotting. Tim has opted for a 170mm air spring for his Rock Shox Lyrik Ultimates. The cockpit is a Deity affair, with the Copperhead stem holding a 31.8 Skyline bar in place. ODI grips round out the front end.
How clean right? SRAM AXS dropper and shifter pods clean up the cockpit of excess cables. And, like I’ve said many times if there is no King is it really a dream build? Well, Tim slipped in a Chris King headset to keep me happy! The whole bike then gets an All-Mountain Style protective wrap.
