My 2017 Process 111, Brenda, is a camel. She's always been big boned, but now she carries water for me.
This bike is so mental that on my first ride I forgot that I was evaluating a new bike. She slid under the radar and into my heart.

Nice color. Did you tap threads in for the cage?

Rattle can, yes. I chose an engine block paint as it's supposed to be fairly resistant to wear, and so far it still looks great imho.

I used riv-nuts to mount the water bottle cage, and the hose guides.

Ah yes. I think it may be a way to put little cable tabs on there for running an external dropper maybe? I have some keeping cables on my top tube, which you might be able to see in my photos.

This bros kona will be in storage till late April. Just had all the slidy bits serviced, pivots replaced and the front end set up with a 130mm and -deg angleset. The ride hope from the shop was so buttery!

That terrain looks amazing. Where is it?

The Hills of the Sierra Madre, inland from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Our rainy season is from June-Sept, basically all summer.
It's manageable, as it tends to only rain in the evenings (almost like clock work).

I might try dropping my fox36 to 130mm, get more weight on the front.

That’s exactly what I’d consider doing to mine, let us know how it rides when it’s possible to get out.
Apart from my Genesis tarn 20 I’ve decided the 111 is the only bike I’ll ever need, unless age makes me go electric !

Even just a quick zip down the road and I can tell the bike is gonna feel better on the trail. I think it was a bit over forked with the 140mm and no angleset. BBH feels better now and I like the lower stack height after dropping the fork and adding a degree of slackness. Can't wait to get it out.
