Model/Year: 2019 Process CR/DL

Pros: Loves back wheel. Burley enough for park, spry enough for backyard trails. Super-fun, all-round party bike

Cons: Chainstays flare wayyy out to accommodate boost spacing. Constant battle with scuff marks. Wrap that sucker before you take an inaugural ride. Climbs well-enough for me (I suck). May not be as nimble for you mountain goats.

Recommendation: Nimble and burley, all rolled into one sick package. The new suspension layout lets it thrive in steep and technical downhill, but isn't a slouch in a climb or challenging your buddies to a game of B.I.K.E. on some skinnies. I love a bike with short chainstays, but this one just might make you a convert as well.
