The Bonty was definately the understated US built frame from the 90's yet equally as well made as others..the welds on this frame are awesome. I chose a YETI over one of these back in the early 90's and the build quality wasnt nearly as good.

Very nice Bontrager

In the 90s I saw the Bontrager as the unconventional, functional, smart offering. Yeti was the ultimate dreambike, but now I owned a couple I experienced that for me personally the bike falls short in refinement.

A Race was on my shortlist in the mid 90s, but I couldn't live with the racy cockpit.
