Kona Process 153 L

$650 GBP
Kona Process 153 in size large. MORE PHOTOS HERE- I've owned this bike for 3.5 years as second owner and its taken a battering in that time and has a few war wounds (see bottom). It is a mountain bike and has been ridden as such. I rawed the front triangle last September whilst injured as original paintwork was getting messy and always wanted a raw ali frame. It looks very industrial now but can be resanded and polished if you desire, currently has no laquer on it so all marks are easily seen. Still some little bits of green if you look for them on the underside but not noticeable normally. NOT A PERFECT UNIFORM FINISH Large frame 460mm reach with -2 headset installed making head angle 64.5 and also has a single offset bushing installed in top shock mount that can be flipped to either give 64 or 65 and raise or lower bb slightly. Geo is similar to most companies 2019 mediums and with the low standover would suit anyone from 5'8 to 6ft (i'm 6'1 and its biggest bike I've owned) very playful although the coil shock makes it slightly less willing to get off the floor but there is way more grip Spec FORK: Rockshox Pike rct3 160mm few year old,regularly serviced and still smooth, small scratch on left hand stantion does not cause any problem to the function of the fork, lowers are pretty scratched up but all cosmetic. SHOCK: X fusion vector coil hlr shock - incredible rear shock, has prototype x fusion internals as came from a sponsored riders bike. Original stock internals can be fitted by x fusion I have been in contact with them and they're happy to fit the bottom out adjuster. As it is set up currently it is very progressive which works well with the fairly linear frame design. Bike will come with 500lb spring (fitted) and 3 spares 300-450. WHEELS: Front - spank oozy 295 couple very small dings still perfectly straight trouble free never have to touch it. Rear - Hope dh pro 4, few dings one bigish one still seats tubeless every time bearings a bit ropey will need changing soon. Both wheels have had Rimpact inserts fitted for last few months and are a game changer. TYRES: Currently fitted with a few weeks old 2.6 specialized butcher up front, with a dh casing high roller 2 in the back. Will come with few spare tyres for the right price (aggressor DD, Wtb Trailboss tough) COCKPIT: 2 month old Renthal 38mm rise 800mm alu bars with a Chromag 31mm stem. Renthal ultra tacky push on grips. BRAKES: Shimano Slx 203 rotors both ends, Work horse brakes easy to look after and cheap to replace. SEATPOST: Rockshox reverb b1 170mm drop with 1x remote, just serviced needs refitting and bleeding will try to get this done before sale, Burgtec 'the cloud' saddle on top. DRIVETRAIN: Slx cranks and derraileur, Xt shifter, sunrace 11spd cassette, absolute black oval chainring (will need replacing soon lost a couple teeth still works fine) One Up 1x guide and bashguard, Nukeproof Neutron pedals (i think) had these for well over 4 years across 3 bikes never let me down although are in need of a service. Bike has a few issues the most major of which is a small crack in the top shock mount, I noticed this in April of this year and have ridden it 3 or 4 times a week since then with NO ISSUES including revolution bike park, innerleithen and fort william uplift days as well as my local tracks in Yorkshire and the Lake Distric,t and commuting to work. The crack has not worsened throughout this and is unnoticeable when riding but obviously is not ideal. Frame also has a few dents all of which are cosmetic but again not ideal, 2 small ones at bottom of downtube and one mid way on the downtube. Also has couple of slightly bigger ones on the non driveside seatstay caused in a crash into a particularly pointy rock. I have no doubt this frame will battle on for another few years and would recommned it to someone lighter than me (80kg) to put a bit less strain on it, and with the spare spring rates finding a perfect set up should be easy. Because of these issues I'm open to any offers but no trades. Any questions please ask, would prefer buyer to see this bike in the flesh before buying but will post at cost. Matt

@o3zone: i think by getting lower you just open up so much more movement for your arms and legs to press into holes as well as absorb bumbs, and your centre of gravity being lower you dont get knocked side to side as easily. Like laurie said he was getting wild in the past for no reason and if ya look at pierron his elbows are crazy stuck out and he just works the bike through shit

Rockshox Monarch Plus rct3

$90 GBP
Rockshox Monarch plus Rct3, 200x57 size MM tune. Came from a new Giant reign and was used on my Kona process for 8 months. Since changed to a coil so this has been kept as a spare for last few months Would benefit from a service as it hasnt been ridden for a while and i remember it feeling a bit notchy towards the end of its time on the bike. Offers considered will post within country. Matt
