Bontrager Line Pro 30 Carbon Wheels - Review
These things do ride damn well. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Bontrager has come a long way, and they run the business like a stand alone company.. Their products are really flying under the radar, but I would put money on them any day. Just look at the enduro team, how often did any of their riders have a mechanical that involved a Bontrager part? Pretty damn good work Bontrager.

Eminent Cycles Launches the Haste - First Look
Looks interesting, but two things bother me. External droppers are pretty much a thing of the past...designing a brand new bike that runs external seems strange. Overall athletics of the rear end also feel dated to me. Almost like someone is trying to re-imagine an old Yeti and not going far enough into the future. Bottom line seems like a bike from 3-4 years ago, not something that just got released....

About to get me some of those TRP silvers and this came out just at the right time to prompt me into buying.

Used once, before I pulled off of my bike and upgraded to RSCs. Good brakes, plenty of stopping power, I just wanted more adjustable levers as I am one finicky bastard. Shipping in the lower 48 is included in the asking price.

This is my wife's bike so it's lightly used. Everything is in perfect working order other than the dropper which works great, but as a former mechanic I think it could use a bleed to be perfect again. Otherwise the bike has been awesome. I'll put a set of new tires on, buyers choice from the Bontrager line up, before sale so you'll have fresh rubber to start the season in the spring. I'll take offers that are reasonable, but don't low ball me- it was $3,100 new so I know this is a fair price. Included in the price is the cost of shipping within the lower 48. Here are the specs: Frame WSD Geometry, Alpha Platinum Aluminum, ABP Convert, Full Floater, E2 tapered head tube, press fit BB, alloy EVO link, internal front derailleur cable routing, internal dropper post routing, G2 Geometry, 110mm travel Wheels Bontrager sealed cartridge bearing hubs, 15mm alloy axle front, 142x12 rear w/Bontrager Duster 28-hole Tubeless Ready rims Tires Bontrager XR3 Expert, aramid bead, 29x2.30" Drivetrain Shifters Shimano SLX, 10 speed Front derailleur Shimano SLX, high direct mount Rear derailleur Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus Crank Shimano M552, 42/32/24 Cassette Shimano HG62 11-36, 10 speed Components Saddle Bontrager Evoke 2 WSD, chromoly rails Seatpost RockShox Reverb Stealth, 31.6mm, zero offset Handlebar Bontrager Race Lite, 31.8mm, 15mm rise Stem Bontrager Race Lite, 31.8mm, 7 degree Headset FSA IS-2, E2, sealed cartridge bearing Brakeset Shimano SLX hydraulic disc Color Liquid Green/Trans Green

@m47h13u: doubtful-the bontrager stuff is actually really good- Only thing I've swapped is my grips. It's sooo mainstream to knock on an in house brand, but they have more money and better engineers than a lot of these component companies-stuff is solid and the customer service is the best I've come across. Might not have the "bling" factor- but if you're just looking for solid parts-look no further.
