I've been here a while and thought it was about time I did a build thread! I have a few Bontragers, but this is the only one I can start at the beginning with, the others are all nearly done or finished, like my Road Lite in the Road section. I picked the frame, fork, seatpost, saddle, headset and lovely bar/stem combo up from a forum member last year and have decided to do a fairly lightweight build, possibly SS or 1x8. It is a pre trek race lite, probably 93/94 in superb condition and I love it, I've picked up a few parts already but there's still a little way to go yet.
I'm not a fan of the Bontrager/San Marco Saddle shape, so I've moved that on, to be replaced with my favourite saddle of all time: a specialized/wtb s-works prolong titanium. Wheels will be Hope/Mavic and cranks probably either Raceface Turbine I beams, Cook Bros RSR or M730 XT. The rest of the build is to be decided, so your input would be much appreciated!
Here is the start of the project:
