I have an opportunity to get into a Process frame. I have a bit of a bike problem - I'm the first to admit it. I live between two places so I often leave one or two in each location. I like to ride gnar but often get the chance to cruise some easy blues as well. One of my bikes broke and I jumped on the Knolly Warden sale so I now have three bikes. I don't really need another but again, I have a problem and a bin full of parts. My current rides include
150/150mm Mullet 29"front/27.5"rear
Hardcore hardtail 150mm 27.5"
I have spare parts to mostly build the process
I'm thinking the 134 would fill a gap but in this day and age, why go short travel? The bikes all ride so well that I feel like you don't really gain much when you lose travel. I read a review of the 134 and they put it at 31+ lbs without pedals. How much more would the 153 weigh, especially given that the same parts would be going on either frame? I'm putting a DVO diamond on it so it can be any length between 140-160. Anyone ridden both of these? How different were they? Maybe I should just break down and get a long travel wagon wheeler?
