    I am buying this bike. Plz help identify this Rocky Mountain

    Last time i used a bicycle was back in 1993.

    I am addicted to various cardio exercises (swimming, hicking, jogging) now and am considering to buy myself a bike. It will also help me keep up with my son when he is using his

    I cant find a good one where i live. Someone living a few blocks away is selling the bike in pic for around 315 USD. I went to bikepedia but can not find this particular rocky mountain unless i know the year and the name of model. Please help identify the bike and share your thoughts.

    Cheers

    Looks to be an Element.

    Is the 325 USD tag for a used 98/99/2000 element justified?

    its a bit steep, the fork looks to be an upgrade from 2001 or 2002 ask if he will take 250 cash.
    you could do worse but it is still almost 10 YEARS! old so it might be a better idea to look for a local bike shop and spend 400 to 500 and get some dsc brakes and way better wheels and components.
    The upside of going to a shop is getting a bike that FITS !

    I take back that earlier id saying that it looks like it might be a 1998 Element Race as it looks more like the 2000 Spice:

    Thing is that i am in Pakistan, where there is not much concept of cycling. The local shops are not dedicated bike shops. They keep unknown chinese brands along with other sports items. I can either try to import a good one from dubai, UAE or go for this one.

    Due to the scarcity of options, i will try my best to hit a good deal for this RM.

    You are spot on. I was myself not sure for element because of the color scheme and stickers. This one is the perfect match. Thanks for your time.
