Strengths:    Great all-rounder, light, stiff, tough! This is the only bike I need!

Weaknesses:    Seatmast assembly requires cleaning monthly to keep from squeaking. Not a big deal once you figure out how/what to clean.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this Boone 5 to be my road bike, gravel bike & cx bike. I just switch the wheels around. Sound crazy? Well, it works damn well! I just couldn't find a better looking/sounding bike for $2450 after 10% off. After one season of beating the hell out of this bike through 5 road races, 2 100+ mile gravel grinders, 5 cx races & a zillion training miles of all three, I have not been disappointed! Actually, it was my best season ever. Wether the bike is responsible for that or better training, I don't know. But I can tell you it sure was nice only having 1 bike position to get used to. The bike weighs just over 18lbs with the stock wheels & everything. And the stock wheels, the new bontrager tlr wheels, have been a nice surprise. The stock tektro brakes are wonderful too. Much better than the other Tektro's I've had. Can't go wrong with a Shimano 105 workhorse drivetrain either. Even the grippy stock tires work great for cx, and at 180lbs, I've ran them down to 40 psi on those great wide rims. I do put on burlier tires for gravel rides though. The frame geometry seems to work just as advertised. I never felt myself not being able to handle any course I rode position-wise, and always felt balanced and in position to attack. The Isospseed Decoupler definetly smooth things out. This benefit is huge in a 100+ mile gravel race. It's also noticeable on the road. As for cx, I won my cat in the last event I did on the bumpiest course you could imagine. I did mention above that the seatmast assembly needs cleaning monthly or so. It creaks when dirty. Easy to clean after you figure it out. By the way, for $1200 more the Boone 9 is only 1 pound lighter. My buddy bought one after he saw how well the Boone 5 worked for me. Loves his too! Another buddy bought a $3000 carbon Specialized Crux and it weighs 24 lbs stock. Are you kidding me! I hope this quick review helps!

Trek boone seat cap

Built up my size 56 trek boone and it came with a short seat cap so I need to get another one since I'm already over the minimum insertion line. While thats mildly irritating that I need to buy the longer cap my questions relates to the offset and how the speed coupler works. I was going to ge ... Read More »

Boone Frameset issue

Not a huge issue, but the cover on my iso-speed seatpost thing keeps popping off (61cm frame). Not an issue, but it does cover the bearings in there... I saw another boone 9 frame set last night (size 56). Both bikes riders 180-200#. Anyone else have this 'pop' up on their frames? I am in co ... Read More »

Trek Boone Sizing issue. Ideas?

I'm 6'3" with roughly a 34" inseam. My seat height on a 60cm Trek Domane road bike is right around 84-84.5cm. Trek Boone sizing goes from a 58cm to a 61cm and the issue I'm finding is the maximum seat mast height on the 58 maxes out at ~83cm. If I was going to be racing cross I don't think i'd find ...
