Hi all!

I´ve been lurking here awhile and thought that I´d post my bike :D
It´s the penultimate year Privateers were made, and alas, the last of the Bontrager bikes.

I bought it new and it´s a great bike on the trail. I don´t really know how much it´s downgraded from the "Race" frame but I´ve always found it a sweet ride.
At the time I also got a hold of the teamjersey which of course is rasta as well. Used it last evening when trailriding a bit :twisted:

Now I´ve got a hold of a frame that´s gonna be built up during the winter as I don´t have loads of stuff like a lot of you on the forum, but that´s another story to be told :wink:

Here´s the facts:

Frame: Privateer Large

Nice ride. Let's see that Trek also.

I had a gray 970 which came stock with some 3D purple stufff. Give it to my cousin some time ago...kind of miss it now.

Thanx octsoc :)

Well, maybe I´ll take a few pics. I don´t really ride it much even though it´s a nice bike. The 970 has an even lighter frame iirc.

very nice. love the colours and the look of that.

I too had a Trek 970, and miss it quite a bit. I think the 930 did have a slightly heavier frame - true temper OXII rather than OXIII or something - and IIRC was a lovely satin light greenish blue.

Thanx all :D
Yes it is original in color and all else except some bits.
I really dig it and it rides great. And it looks good with the team jersey of the same colorscheme.

I´ve now gotten a Race Lite frame that will come to life over the winter.
As I don´t have a lot of extra stuff I´ll have to buy it. It´ll be pretty expensive :evil:
