For sale is my large 2018 Kona Process 153 AL with upgraded fork. I love this bike. It shreds everything. But I had plans to take it on trips to Bentonville, and it looks like now those trips aren't going to happen. Unfortunately, I have to let her go.

It's a 2018, but I bought it earlier this year, so it doesn't have many miles on it. It's been ridden a few times on fairly tame trails in St. Louis. For the large travel, it makes a surprisingly great trail bike. The bike is stock except it's fork has been upgraded. I put a Suntour Durolux on it. It is Durolux with a RC2 damper which I bought from Trail Labs in Springfield, Missouri. It is their top of the line model. It eats everything up and feels amazing doing it. It destroys the Yari that came on the bike, and it's the best fork I've ever used. The fork is set at just over 170mm with a long axel to crown length. According to my phone's angle finder, it brings the head tube angle to 64 degrees! Everyone knows front ends keep getting slacker, and I can see why. It is amazing and I don't really notice any negatives to it.

This fork is very easy to work on. You can adjust the travel simply by adding or removing spacers. I did it easily by watching a YouTube video. I will include an extra spacer if you want to lower the travel, but it's perfect the way it is with the slack head tube angle. I also bought a softer negative spring after reading an online review saying how great it was. I never swapped it though, because I think the fork is perfect as is. The spring will be included if you would like to try the softer rate.

The only other things that have been changed are that I put silicone grips on it and a wider saddle I like. The original saddle will be sold with the bike and I still have the original grips which will be included.

I am asking $1850 plus $50 for shipping. Anyone looking to shred for not a lot of money, this is your bike. You get Stumpjumper Evo like geometry for under two grand. I hate to see this bike go, but I hope someone will take it that will ride it the way it deserves to be ridden.

Feel free to ask questions.
