A Bontrager has been on my wanted list for ages but none seem to come along in my size.

Nice build to boot :)


I gotta be honest, im still in shock. The whole bike to build, ready to go, cost me less money than it would have done if I had bought a modern Cotic frame on its own!

I had a day off today and after a 20 mile solo ride in shocking weather I came back with such a smile on my face. I can't believe how different a well built, well designed steel frame rides in comparison to my other bike and how much lighter it feels on my poor old legs afterwards!

After finally finishing the re-build of my Bontrager, I have to say I LOVE it! Took over 3 months to do it, but with a lot of help....Got there in the end....haven't got back on my Rocky since (but will do!) 8)

Would love to see other people's Bontrager's too, there must be loads of Bonty fans out there....so this is your chance to show the world how cool they really are..... :D


Surely we don't need to convince the rest of the world how cool Bontragers are?!?! I had a red Race Lite a few years ago and it was one of those bikes you throw and leg over and it just fits. I would say the qualtiy of a Bontrager is above that of a Cotic though. In fact i would compare it to the quality of DeKerf no problem and you can pick them up for buttons compared to some other more sought after steel hardtails
