    Is a Bontrager Privateer an upgrade over a Tek 970

    I have a 96 X - Caliber, looking at a Privateer, price seems good.

    This is just my fat slick city bike, is it worth the hassle to go get it?

    The Privateers and the Trek 970 were made in the same factory. The bikes are different - different Geo, etc. - but both are nice frames. I'd say that neither is an upgrade over the other.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.
