It seems Bontragers are very much "in" these days. This is my third Bontrager Race in as many months, however this is first complete custom ordered project for a customer in Australia. This is a rather early example of the Race, similar to the Race Lite I had late last year. It still has the segmented rear stays and the front derailleur cable pulley, all in all a very nice example.
The bike came to me as a frame with Mag-21 LT and a few small bits and pieces. After a few iterations of parts selection we settled on a clean M900 XTR build and swapped the Mag-21 LT for an SL Ti, topped it off with a CK headset, Bontrager stem and Titec Titanium handlebar.
I must say that of the three Bontys that have passed through my "shop" I am most impressed with this one. I'm not sure if it's the color or the way this one seemed to come together so easily, but it's my favorite. I hope it brings a lot of fun to its new owner.
