Oh crap, first time I have seen one that looks good.

Then again I still won't pay the prices they ask for.

Having sat on many bikes, I have to say that overall, Rockys are the best bikes I have ridden. Pricey yes. But I own 3 of them now. And who cares how they look? I don't spend time drooling over any bike. It's the ride that counts.

True, but I really didn't find, in the fr and dh series, that their bikes felt exceptional. If I hold this single pivot for 5300cdn up against a matching travel and warranty for 2000cdn...put that against a solid horst link for 2700$...rocky comes up short everytime.

Again, not talking on the xc end. My uncle in law has been riding them for many many years and will only ever ride rocky for his xc racing. And who am I to judge, he does a course in 23minutes that took my 76minutes...haha

Looks burly, though it reminds me of a bighit.

As the former owner of a full Rocky stable I feel entitled to take potshots at them

Hmm. The Vertex line has dropped Scandium, and gone to what looks like a extruded semi-rectangular head tube looking like it was swiped from a 2000 reaper and bent a little.

That's not really a shot, I guess, just an observation.

The links have all been cold forged now. And are wider, for more strength. I know this because they are a possiable canidate for a future bike. haha.

Oh no I meant if I knew what "cold forged links" meant I would comment. I don't really know much about frame welding/material stuff.
