The Rocky Mountain is one of the best bikes i can think of. It is one of those bikes that you can chuck anything at and it will suck it up. This bike was built for DH, its long aero design, heavy weight keeps you on the ground were you can pedal. And its easy to through around in the air.
The heavy weight is not a big problem. so all the Downhillers that complain about their bike being to heavy stop cause a heavy bike will just make you faster. My bike is almost 8 years old and it still works better than most of the new bikes. The only problem is the dogbone link that conects the shock to the swing arm some how makes the bolt lossen up.
Bikes are a funny thing. you could spend all the money in the world on the sickest, new products that promise so much. But sometimes we should just go to our "old relyable" climd back on it. and ride the bikes that our great sport was built on.
Yes I would recommend it to a friend
