I'll add my Race-Lite pics tomorrow- too dark for the shed tonight! I've been lucky enough to own lots of lovely bikes, including at one point three Bontragers- two Race-Lites and a Ti-Lite. I've had handbuilt frames too, from Chas Roberts, and the Bonty Race-Lite beat them all hands down (in my opinion) and is the only bike I've kept for more than a year- it's by some measure the best bike I've ever owned. If I ever see another at a reasonable price, I'll have it as a spare- I can't imagine ever riding anything else.
Can't wait to see them! Being honest, i have had and got several nice bikes and I cant believe just how good it does ride. I'd also love to see the pics of your old bikes if you have any.
I'm amazed at how little interest and information has been put on this thread so far, because from the short time I have owned the Bontrager all I have been told is how the man was a genius!
I've got a Litespeed and a Rocky Mountain and my Bontrager is my favourite for sure!
