    Bontrager: Privateer Comp?

    Hi. I have a co worker who wants to sell an older mountain bike. I don't know much about moutain bike stuff. It has Shimano XT components, steel frame and front shock. It is in good shape and he is asking $170. I am not looking for something with a full suspension etc so I think this might work. I also know Keith Bontrager from trek stuff. Would this be worth the money provided it fits and everything is working?

    No I don't. He says it is silver with yellow decals and a yellow front shock/fork. I hope that helps.

    Bontrager frames are pretty much classic steel frames, BUT if you ever have to replace the fork you'll have to find a 1" steerer. That aside, if the frame is in good shape, I'd buy it.

    whether you buy it or not, post pics! pre-Trek Bontrager Privateers are classics, and for $170 you'd be getting a steal....

    Fantastic bikes!! I wish he was still making frames. I had one and loved it; got stolen. $170 is a great price.
