Bontrager reviews and news

American bike components

Bontrager - both the man and the brand that bears his name - have an interesting history in cycling and mountain biking. Keith Bontrager started off as a frame builder who built some of the most coveted mountain bikes of the 1980s and '90s. Bontrager is a tinkerer, always striving to create better components. His adage "strong, light, cheap - pick two!" drove his design philosophy and drew the attention of Trek, who purchased Bontrager's company in 1995.

Bontrager still has a hand in designing the parts that adorn many Trek bicycles, and which are also popular aftermarket items.
