Trek has made its name in cycling history as the company that propeled Lance Armstrong to every one of his numerous cycling exploits. The trifecta Madone, Domane, and Emonda are the OG trio of road bikes while the Checkpoint and Boone rule the domain where the road meets the untamed wilderness. The Boone design was created primarily as a Championship-winning cyclocross racer but with excellent potential as a gravel bike as well. With a full carbon fiber Bontrager Isocore Pro handlebar and a frame and fork combo insulated by front and rear isospeed dampeners designed to cushion you from the bumps and cracks in the road, the Trek Boone 7 is the lightest and highest ranking in the Boone lineage and is ready to be your steed for your next off-road adventure. This is a stock 2021 Trek Boone 7 running a wireless electionic SRAM Force eTap AXS 1x12 gravel groupset rolling on Bontrager Paradigm Elite TLR (tubeless ready) disc wheels wrapped in Italian Vittoria Terreno Dry Gravel Endurance tires ($75 each new, upgraded from stock, which were not puncture resistant) that are 35mm for speed and comfort on rough terrain. Disc brake wheels and thru-axle locking round out the latest in gravel/cyclocross technology. The frame is actually from a 2021 Trek Boone 6, (which is the same 600 OCLV carbon frame as the Trek Boone 7 but in blue instead of red and with Shimano cable-shifting components) built up with Boone 7 SRAM electronic componentry, making this the same as a Boone 7 in frame and all components. All cabling on this bike is internal allowing you to lift the bike without hesitation at the top tube. Speed of a road bike, ruggedness of a mountain bike, the cyclocross/gravel bike is regarded by many to be the best of both worlds. It is a size 54cm and I'd expect a rider of around 5'5"-5'11" to fit this bike depending on personal preference, body proportions and configuration of parts. Light and sturdy performance cross/gravel bike that rides like you're on a cloud with off-road tires eating all the road shock; perfect for someone who wants to get serious about cross racing or gravel adventuring at a fraction of the price you'd pay for new one. Hills are a breeze with the 40x10/33 compact gearing with 12 electronically-controlled SRAM gears. Excellent condition; shifts are silent and precise and wheels roll smooth and true. Needs no maintenance, everything working perfectly, always ready to ride. MSRP was $5K plus tax, which is $5,400 new. Pricing at just $2,700 for a bike that looks and rides like new!

MSRP $5,000 plus $400 tax at 8% = $5,400: (Link is for the 2020 Boone 7; this one uses the 2021 frameset below)

"The 2020 Boone 7 Disc is the top of the line when it comes to Trek's cyclo-cross offerings – the lightest, most blinged-out bike in the range, it's the best cyclo-cross bike currently on offer from the American brand.

It's the same quick-handling set-up that riders like Katie Compton and Sven Nys have ridden to international victories – in fact, they both had a hand in designing the frame geometry. When compared with other bikes I've ridden on this same course, the Boone proved it was more than up to the tight turns, fast descents and loose dusty surface.

The Boone's bottom bracket was high enough that I was able to clear a series of short berms without having to worry about it bottoming out while staying quick in the corners.

While I could never obviously feel the action of the IsoSpeed decoupler – a feature that is also on Trek's top road bikes – I did feel like the bike was staying hooked up with the rough terrain on the course much better than my other 'cross rigs which allowed me to get on the power and stay on it earlier out of turns and over rougher parts of the course. The IsoSpeed Cross full carbon fork with 12mm thru-axle made for a super stiff front end with just enough smoothness for comfort and enough responsiveness for great handling.

The SRAM 1x12 drivetrain seems well thought out for racing cyclo-cross. I never felt like I was under or over-geared.

Another sweet feature of the AXS groupset is the Orbit 'chain management technology' - it noticeably kept the chain from slapping against the chainstays on bumpy sections and had flawless, quick-shifting even on the roughest sections.

It comes with low-profile Bontrager Paradigm Elite 25 tubeless-ready wheels, which were smooth rolling and felt fast on and off the road

The Boone was a pleasure to ride and made me hope there was a 'cross season to look forward to. I was impressed with the frameset and while I might make changes to the build to suit my personal tastes, the provided parts were all well-chosen and would allow anyone to jump into 'cross racing with a complete setup that would leave little if anything lacking."

I'm in Decatur near Emory/Toco Hills but pickup is also possible in Doraville during work hours. Please call 6one9-665-7388 for Victor if interested. Thanks for looking!
