Everything You Need to Know About Kona's New Process Bikes
@Racer951: that single pivot term has been over used initially by brands using FSR and VPP in order to denigrate other designs. It just lost its meaning. Yes this bike is a single pivot if you consider the axle path (so is trek split pivot or evil bikes design by the way) but no it can t be compared with a simple mono pivot design. The fact that there are pivots and rockers allow to play with leverage ratio direction changes, kickback, anti squat, anti rise in a way it is impossible with a mono pivot like orange. That s a bit misleading i think to say that it s just a single pivot and it s worst than horstlink. From my point of view, you can achieve basically the same thing.

Definetly not the same than a single pivot. There is a big misunderstanding on that horstlink thing. You can achieve pretty much the same with both faux bar and horstlink systems

@bonfire: basically sram leadtime are on par with other components while shimano by default is longer. If no goox forecast , you know that using shimano you ll have to extend leadtime.Now what could happen is that demand is so high that sram standard leadtime are extended. That happened last year with eagle x01 vagand it happens with gx eagle this year. So yes sram could be the reason why a bike is late but from my experience it would take even longer in average with shimano. I have the case with a model i equipped with sram groupset but shimano brakes.

Faux bar , horstlink, vpp, any weird name you can invent are all good as long as you place the pivots properly. It's more a lack of creativity that i denounce. They did a good job with the old Process. I'm sure they could have dug the concept a bit more. Like specialized with the enduro. They keep the base for which they are famous : FSR, X shape frame but keep adding creative features : Tilt adjustable Seat post, integrated tools, SWAT...

Lead time is 2 times shorter with SRAM for OEM. Both are reliable on the date announced though. So, if you spec shimano brakes, you need to wait that much more to produce your bike.

This bike seems good and i'm sure will attract the masses. However i can't help to think that it lacks a bit of craziness. That design is far too common these days. It works well, convenient from a design perspective, it fits a water bottle but it doesn't stand out for any reason : concept, price, riding style, shape... Just released but have the feeling that i saw it before.

@bizutch: You seem to know the system well. Thanks for the details. So in that case you reckon rider bumped into the wand slightly when getting ready at the gate? Then Tissot had to check the camera to determine the real starting time. It makes sense but UCI should have done a better work explaining it. Also the accuracy of such a method is questionable when the win is by a gap of 0.09s.

Technical issues can happen but i'd be interested to get a convincing explanation on what happened. My guess is that the cell at the top has been activated 2 times. 1 before the real start and one when she started. The time initially shown is the one from the 1st pulse. Rechecking their data, they found that there was 2 pulses and readjusted accordingly. However, if it's as the UCI representative (that seemed to not know what he was doing) explained on the broadcast : "Tissot has manual back up", then there is a serious issue. What happened in first place? How accurate is the manual back up? Enough to make sure Myriam is 2nd by 0.09s?

So, Nicole is slower by 0.1s with a "manual" backup... I guess they could not change the world champion.
