I also added a new to me but used full suspension funduro bike - a 2016 Kona Process Supreme 134 w/ 150 mm travel front suspension and 134 rear.
I got 20 miles on thumb throttle only. I was passing cars while going uphill in the bike lane...

You ever look on Pink Bike? Good site to buy and sell high end bikes.

They have 39 xl size Processes for sale

Mine was local and listed on Craigslist and Pinkbike. Jensen USA had a new 2016 Kona Process Supreme XL for $2500 but looks like they sold it. The supremes went for $5500 new.

If you want a do-everything bike, hard to beat either of the ones you listed. Can highly recommend a Kona Process 134. Not the fastest to the top but decent. Where it shines is going down or technical stuff. Also looked at Kona 111s and Hei Hei FS XC. I would just get in too much trouble with a 153.

Bet that was a sweet ride! I'm in the process of blinging mine up a bit with some Paul components.

Demo'd a Kona HeiHei last week. Carbon 29. It was so much nicer and lighter than my Giant Anthem 27.5.

Also, signed up for my first Century ride. Tour d'cure.

One of my bikes is a Kona Unit, SS, steel frame. Sweet bike.
Another SS that I built I painted flat black. I've gotten several likes while riding that bike.

This time of year I start getting the itch to ride more.

Thinking about getting a single speed road bike. I usually ride 15 miles ballpark on a masi cyclocross ten speed. Or an old bianchi (grizzly frame built out as roadbike) if I'm feeling froggy. But I rarely shift gears and only have hills when I go over bridges.

i almost bought a 134 demo in Moab over the summer, I don't know tons about MBs but I'm starting to like it more and more. I have a giant carbon mb with sram and I really like it but I'd like to have another good bike for the boys to use when we all ride together

I built up a Lynskey hardtail a few weeks back. I haven't had a chance to ring it out good just yet. I think I am going to love it.

A little different kind of build. Needed something a little faster than a cruiser to use on a daily basis to run around Folly beach. It stays outside 24/7 so tried to keep it simple and cheap. Giant Via frame and fork bought from the warranty department for under $50.00. New tires, tubes, cables, bar, tape and seat. Everything else is used parts. Note the 1970s/80s shifting. Campy record derailleur and simplex shifter. Spent under $150.00 total and it does have a kickstand. ...............................................

My entire fleet is now titanium. Well, my tandem is steel but my road bike, my commuter/tourer and my MTB are all titanium. I love the stuff.

Nice Kona. Always been a fan..
Thinking of selling mine if anyone is interested in an older (but still very capable) bike.

Frame size? 26" I assume.

Mileage check in. I'm at 1,395 year to date. Mix or road and singletrack.
