Bottom Line:   

sucks - get a GT
These bikes are overprices, overrated, and overweight. Only a dolt would saddle one of these. The first time I rode one I busted the crosstube and the seatstay! Useless pieces of trash - I'd give it -5 chilies if I could! Maybe they could improve it by melting it down and biulding a GT with it...

Bottom Line:   

The best bike I have ever rode. The best parts, best frame for the price, best service. It's got that sweet singletrack geometry. Screw downhilling, scary single track is the best. I need 19 miore words. WEll now I need 10. If I type this I need only 2 more. Peace yall.

Bottom Line:   

It rides like a Rockey Mountian Soul. It looks even better with the 2 color paint job. It weights nothing, and is great for our technical Southern Ontario trails. Hell, you could race it, and not worry about getting a mchanical cuase the parts are 100% the best for the price. Best of all. 100% hype free!

Bottom Line:   

The duster is 26 pound with indy xc, Lx,Stx
A rather shortish top-tube(19.5/23') induces a cramped feeling in the cockpit but not uncomfortable
enough to cause problems.
Quick, agile and fast.
Not stiff enough but othewise Great riding for just 450$Am
better than my stolen RM
Thin blue line put their money into their product instead of wasted advertizing.

Bottom Line:   

If you are in the market for a new bike and you are in Toronto you need to take a look at Thin Blue
Line bikes. They are good/agresive single track bikes.
They are the best I have ever ridden ( for just 400$).
their is bound to be one in your price range.

It took me a while,but i narrowed it down to a 2-3"portion of my rear rim. Took off the tire, noticed the rim joint is in that area. Took off the rim strip & i could see s ... Read More »

Duster Elite wheel

I had a wheel warrantied and they replaced a duster wheel with a duster elite. The dealer described it as upgraded hub. Anyone hear of these? There is no info on Trek or Bontrager's web site. It does say duster elite on the rim and hub.Read More »

duster tlr wheels or mavic crossland?

Those are the wheels i already have, which should i use? Been riding the Mavics for a few years and haven't bent them yet if that's any indications of my riding style? No big jumps. Probably the hardest thing I'll put a wheel through is dropping off a logride. Couple of them are maybe couple fee ... Read More »

Who has gone tubeless on their stock Duster wheels?

Is it possible? I have had my Duster 29s at the LBS for the past week, off of my 2013 Rumblefish, and now they are saying they aren't tubeless ready as they have tried multiple lots to no avail. I thought they were because I was told so when I bought the bike.Read More »
