    I'm thinking super hard about getting this one....it's between the Boone and a Jamis Renegade Expert most likely. My heart is leaning towards the Jamis...my wallet is screaming buy the Boone!

    People aren't giving a lot of info on these guys. So I will offer a review and my own personal perspective. I have a '14 Boone 5 Disc.

    I am not going to mention any geometry numbers or a whole lot that is going to be on the website. It's a shame that this bike hasn't even made much noise on Youtube...it's a pretty interesting bike.

    So the whole hype with the new Boone frames is the IsoSpeed Decoupler which essentially has the seattube detached from the seatstays and toptube. It is instead connected through some bearing that allows more seattube movement than a traditional frame design. It works as intended. Does it work better than the SAVE post offered by C'dale or the Specialized CG-R? I don't know, but I suspect so. I would also like to add that if you're masterminding some kind of plan to combine the two systems....it won't work. The Boone has an integrated seatpost where the seatpost actually sleeves over the frame and is adjustable. So you really want to make sure you're getting into the right size frame or you may run into problems where the seatpost is either too short or too high. The compliance built into the IsoSpeed is noticeable, but shouldn't be exaggerated like some of the reviewers made it out to be. The combination of the carbon used, IsoSpeed, and fork rake makes for a pretty sublime ride, and I am very happy about it. I also have a Specialized TriCross Expert that is Columbus E5 aluminum with carbon stays and Speed Zertz was a frame far ahead of it's time. Light, fast, great ride...vertical compliance laterally stiff..it really is a marvel for a 2007 frame. However, the Boone with IsoSpeed tech steps it up a notch to a bike that pedals faster and more efficiency with a noticeably degree better compliance.

    The frame has a more "compact" design with a semi-sloping toptube. Still room for 2 water bottles in a 50cm frame. The fit is more relaxed than many other CX bikes which I believe favors great gravel grinder platform.

    Despite the numbers, I was able to fit Conti Speed Ride 42c tires on Rol D'Huez rims (22.5 external, 17mm internal, wider than traditional rims) with room to spare (3-4mm on each side). The front can significant bigger....probably 48-52c. Now keep in mind if you're riding somewhere with a lot of mud or tires that pick up rocks, account for that when you choose the size.

    The ride is very natural and neutral. I don't personally like the 105 11sp that came on it, and the Bontrager TLR wheels are beefy, stiff, and tubeless ready, but the qualities end there. There is a lot of drag in those wheels, front and rear. You really have to put in extra energy to keep them up to speed. They don't coast along that nice at all. I wish the reason for this was the BB5 disc brakes, but it wasn't...I got that stuff out of the way really early on.

    I personally believe that this is a very good gravel grinder platform if you want to build something light fast and compliant! It is by far the best engineered Trek I ever swung my leg over...and that says a lot because I never really liked Trek as a company or the products they make..which still largely holds true, but did it right with this one.

    In the next month a friend is suppose to acquire a Lauf Grit fork. I have a Lauf TR29 (that is for sale I might add because I don't have a bike for it) so I know what to expect with Lauf. It should really be interesting to have that kind of noticeable active compliance in a gravel bike. So if I remember, Ill check back in with a review of it as a system, and who knows....if it blows me away, I'll likely buy one!

    I will mention a quirk of the frame. If you want to re-cable the bike (the bike is all internal cable routing) or change the group like I did.....remove the BB before you start feeding cables! There is a plate on the bottom that routes cables, and it is a PITA to grab and direct the cables if the BB is installed. I learned that the hard way! Also you will need a smaller tube to feed through so that you can feed the cable..and then the hose over the cable. It's a tricky system to route, but not as nearly as hard as tri-bikes.

    If you have any special questions, feel free to send me a message, and I'll do my best to answer.

    Just want give my quick thoughts on my Rail Trail ride yesterday, first on the Crockett. The last post pic is my ride.
    It's a SRAM Force/Rival build with WTB i19 rims with x9 front and older WTB Laser Lite rear hub.
    Anyways as I said, I have a pretty serious health issue to deal with so my plan is to be ready with this bike for cross season in the Fall.
    This is one cool bike! I couldn't believe the acceleration this sucker hands out. But in doing so, there's still a comfort level there that will keep you fresh for the bell lap.
    Coming off a cheap aluminum frame I didn't think there'd be much of a difference but I was wrong.
    I'll definitely offer a better review in the coming weeks as I log some more time and hit some rougher stuff.

    Hello,

    Considering that many Trek Boone bikes come with 1x11 transmission (40T chainring / 11-28 cassette) I was seriously wondering how you guys can cycle uphill with 40/28 as your lowest gear??

    I also run 1x11 on a Kona Rove but with a 38T front and a 11-42 cassette rear, and even though my lowest gear 38/42 is already 37% lower than the 40/28 of many Trek Boone bikes I'm still struggling on steeper climbs here. One time I was thinking of upsizing the front chainring to 42T for little more top speed but eventually couldn't afford loosing my lowest gear.

    Maybe we are not riding on the same terrain but IMO the bike seems unnecessarily crippled with such a narrow 11-28 cassette. It's like as if I was loosing my 3 lowest gears!

    The Boone and Crockett are race bikes first and foremost, so if you need lower gears it's generally quicker to run. I've put a 50/34 on my Boone 5 as it is my gravel/do it all bike. I like the lower gear on loose climbs where cross/gravel tyres struggle for traction but I have the 50 for cruising on the tarmac.
    Enjoy the ride.

    When I had my SuperX is was SRAM 1x and I grabbed a long cage r/d and 40T cassette. Worked perfect and could climb anything I can climb now with my 34/36 that's on my Jamis.

    The Boone and Crockett picture thread....-trek.jpg


    I have been seriously procrastinating on this, but now I have about 400mi on the setup in it's current state. It's pretty much came out just as I planned for the project. I build all my own bikes so this one was no different. It weighs 17.72lb w/cages and bottles.

    Force 10s group with Wolf Tooth 42T Drop-Stop ring, and SRAM Red 11-26 cassette. BB92 SRAM type Bottom Bracket.

    I swapped out the bars for 44c FSA K-Force Compact carbon bars. Easton EVA foam bar tape...to add a little "flair".

    Swapped out the ISP seatpost for the longer version with a clamp for carbon saddles. Fizik Aliante Carbon saddle near new in a bargain box for $35!!!

    The wheels are custom made by a local builder that I completely spec'd out: Pacenti SL25 (tubeless ready), Sapim CX-Ray Spokes (28/28), Sapim Pro-Lock nipples, Bitex hubs with DT Swiss RWS Thru-Bolts front and rear to compensate for now thru-axles. Wrapped in Clement X'Plor MSO 40c tires setup tubeless (No they aren't tubeless ready tires, but they gave me zero fits)

    I swapped the brakes out for TRP Spyre SLC disc brakes because I got them extremely cheap ($80pr)! 140mm rotors front/rear.

    I took the picture on my Xterra because I was just bored and needed fresh air at work, and I have to ride my bike to a car sale haus to pick up a Subi outback I just bought. Probably the last picture of my Xterra I will take lol. I want to point out....nevermind about the cheesy platform pedals. I rode Critical Mass the other night, and I chose reg. street shoes for the bar hop afterwards.

    As far as reviews go, now that I got the bike project completed, it is one of the nicest riding cross bikes I have ever been able to swing my leg over. I am not really a Trek fan, but I feel this bike is an exception, and the execution of the platform itself has been very successful. The ISO Speed works as advertised, and the amount of compliance it delivers under you makes the investment worth it.

    The cable routing is a B**ch with a capital 'B'. My best advice is to remove the BB when you do it! It will save you from fishing for cables too much. I would say that the cable routing and the design for the cable routing was the least thought-through aspect of the design. The fork isn't quite hyped up to what they marketed, but it's a damn good fork. The Specialized's TriCross from years ago was better, but they only made it in canti I believe. The wheels were the difference over the awful Bontrager hoops. The Force 10sp is much better than the vague 105 11sp IMO, which is subjective of course.

    If there was one alternative I would consider, and there was some "builder's remorse" it was the NORCO Search. I love that frame, and I loved the Ultegra hydro-disc brakes. The bike was spec'd well.

    Really nice pictures here, and interesting reading!

    Just got Crockett frameset with intention to retire my 7yrs old CAADX. This beauty looks really nice in person.

    At first glance I am not sure about right chainstay in my frame. I understand some dent is needed there to clear chainring, BUT I would rather think this deeper bent shall be located inwards, towards the tire.

    With Clement MSO X’PLOR (40x700) there is ~3mm tire clearance to the right chainstay and ~small finger one on the left side.

    Can anybody, please, eye his own frame to confirm right chainstay in my frameset is ok, looks similar, or was welded in opposite 180degree position, that is this deep dent shall be located inwards?

    I would assume that chainstay is shaped like that for chainring clearance.

    ljsmith,
    Thanks for reply.
    Absolutely some dent is needed there. I am just not sure whether this deep one shall be facing chainrings, not tire. Therefore asking for other proud Crockett users experience

    I guess there is no miss-welded chainstay in my frameset, just want to feel assured before will start to build it up.

    That is completely normal! Nice bike. So you got 40s to fit huh?

    Crocket and Boone are very similar...especially in the rear triangle design and numbers.

    I have custom built Pacenti SL25s (wider than stock bontrager wheels) with the Clement MSO X'Plorer 40c and they fit just fine. I mean I don't believe they're going to be the best for shedding mud, but if you're using the MSOs in mud, you're going to have more problems than just clearance....this is a gravel/dry CX tire for sure.

    It could be a cheap chinese frame. Where did you get it? From trek? Call trek to verify serial number located on bottom bracket.

    same chainring clearance "dent" on my frame too. definitely tight clearance on the drive side chainstay though, since so much room is given for the chainring. I have some sign of tire rub when riding on WTB Nano40 (mounted on old narrow bontrager wheels too) for gravel rides.

    I believe it might be safe to assume that wheel flex may be a contributing factor as well. I have a bout 3mm on the drive side and about 4mm on the non-drive side. However, as I pointed out, I am wider rims with a different brand tire so based on the combination...results may vary.

    Ladies and Gents, first of all thanks for all replies on my chainstay doubts

    In the meantime was waiting for new wheels, eventually arrived. So... here it is just has been built - first ride

    Need to tweak here and there still. I guess will remove these stickers from rims, should look nicer.

    Oh, and THIS SEATPOST - truly, it WORKS!

    Pics from yesterday's ride. Such a fun bike, plenty capable on the road of course, handles crappy city streets just fine, and a helluva lot of fun on unknown park trails (I guess this describes any CX bike). I want to bump my tire size though! Thinking 40c G-Ones or similar.

    Clement X'plor 700x40 fit great! Awesome for gravel/trail/etc, not so awesome for going fast on anything smooth or paved.

    Cute bike!

    I don't find them to be all that slow at all. They are slightly slower than my Schwalbe Marathon 35c commuter tires, but they have a significantly more supple ride, but I can keep them spinning comfortable at 17-18 and sprint up when I need to. Mine are wrapped on some nice custom built Pacenti SL25 wheels, CX-Ray spokes and hubs that spin for days...most likely helps some.


    They definitely come alive on the gravel/dirt though. Good confidence turning without losing speed. I have been running mine tubeless for 1.5yrs now and haven't added sealant. I have to add air, but I check the air pre-ride everytime anyways....and pretty much all tires lose air. I really haven't been able to fault these tires at all. They have been fantastic!

    Which version are you running? Mine are the 60tpi I think. Wheelset is decent, and I haven't gone tubeless yet. Love the tires for what they are though...my most recent comparison is a set of Jack Browns, which are friggin awesome tires.

    I believe the 120 TPI tire is only the 36c Tubeless, all the rest are 60c.
    I am running the 60 TPO 40c.

    I don't know if I would compare them to JB's, they're a completely different tire, completely different profile, and practically for a different use. They describe it as sort of a file tread with "micro-files" in the checkers, but the reality is that there's no real knobbies anywhere on those tires. Based on the profile and the 33.3c size, they should roll along faster and more smoothly than Clement X'Plor MSOs...and pretty much any other gravel/CX tire out there.


    To me, I would compare these to the Continental Speed Ride 42c. The Conti's balloon out more as they should being 2mm wider, but its even more pronounced on 25c rims. The Conti's are slightly lighter for the size, but they don't grip as good as the Clements nor are they as durable/long lasting. The Clements actually coast linger than the Speed Ride because of the higher density center rubber where the Speed Ride is a consistent file tread all the way to the edge "knobbies".

    Out in the woods... Handled huge boulders and loose rock no problem. Weird dirt in New Hampshire.

    Going to hit some singletrack and dirt back here in Texas soon.

    What tires are you using? Looking for suggestions for my Crockett. Something comfortable for gravel, road, and comfort.
    Thanks!

    I was using Conti Cyclocross King on gravel / trail, and would swap them out for Conti 4000S2 for road only.

    Didnt notice any slippage, held onto the gravel very well, but didnt do too well on the road, very noisy, grip wasnt that great. I had the rear slide around occasionally.

    There is a kind of magic riding in rain, in woods...

    Especially with mudguards

    Autumn has arrived, no doubt.
