This is my 1996 Privateer, not the greatest pic. started out as a green privateer frame from ebay about 5/6 years ago, I had it stripped & powdercoated, and have been riding it on and off the last couple.

The decals are from Gil, not accurate, but there were no privateer ones available at the time, so I had what was avaliable

The forks (2001 Z2's) were converted to 1" by Windwave when they still had replacement steerer tubes, for this year went with wide riser bars, Raceface Evolution, rides even nicer than when it had straight bars

1993-ish OR Race size XL as seen on the White Rim Trail in 2007.

This is my 3rd Bontrager. This frame had square decals upon purchase and is Ser# 102.

Manitou SX-R fork. WTB GreaseGuard BB.

This bike was 8sp/canti levered until I moved to central Idaho where the terrain dictated some mods...9sp SRAM and Mech discs.

If I keep this bike, the next improvement will be a GravityDropper post. Again dictated by terrain and 6'3" height.

Frame and fork were repainted to deter theft. Theft was the fate of my 1st Bontrager. I purchased a purple OR Race frame and fork in 1994 (Ser#174). I still have the original brochure and will post scans soon.

I was fortunate enough at that time to know and ride with a guy that did some of the Bontrager rim rolling. He never would part with his 140mm BarStem but he did part w/ a pair of original MA40 cutdown wheels (lost in the theft). He was the source of many replacement chainsuck plates too. I bet he still has that BarStem the bastard...why the BarStem idea never caught on still baffles me.
