2013 Kona Process and others in Ashland Oregon

Kona rolled through Ashland yesterday with a few bikes from their 2013 fleet and we hosted a mini demo night ride. All the bikes were spoken for so I had to ride my own. Which I had figured was going to happen.

A Hei Hei, 2 Process's and a Satori were available for demo ...

I have been excited about the Process for sometime now. It seems to fit my personality, get to the top of the mountain any which way, then point down to let the good times roll. I was anxious to try one. I want to say thanks to Jimmy from Kona for letting me take one out today after the demo. I woke up early to sneak in a ride before he had to head back north with the bikes.

Snow had fallen over night and left me a little bummed in the morning. I was hoping to be able to get a solid  ride on the Process. Oh well, I headed up the mountain and went for it anyways. Having the two chain rings up front on this bike was nice. It's not meant to be a race bike up the mountain, you'll have to work for it a little bit.

 Unfortunately the trails were mostly covered in snow and I didn't get near the time I was wanting on the bike. With that said it was still a blast on the way down, worth every pedal stroke it took to reach the top. The Process has no gimmicks or ridiculous bells and whistles, rather parts that work well and from the looks of it can take a beating. I look forward to hopefully getting some more time on one in the near future.

Headed back to the shop to drop off the Process, would have loved another day with it!
