Curious, Dave was there for a day - maybe two. Rode a couple of bikes once
each. As he states, and as it is with all of these things, it's really hard to
draw sweeping conclusions about a bike after one brief ride.
I don't know how you concluded it comes down to the suspension alone. Re-read
Dave's answer. It's also the bike's intention. Process 134 is slightly more
down-focussed. That is reflected in suspension design and tune, spec, geo,
etc…it's not just one thing, it's a list of things. It's never simple. The Hei
Hei could be stiffer - but that won't make it a better descender on its own.
Fork travel helps, of course. So do wheel and tire specs, etc, etc.
I'm sure we'll test something from Kona - probably the Hei Hei - and have more
thoughts on Fuse. Until then, if you're looking at those two bikes and are
more concerned about downhill performance, Process is probably the better bet.
But try to ride 'em for yourself if you get a chance - maybe you won't feel
the same way Dave does!
