I really like these Rocky Mountain frames! Considering it for a new race bike next year so will be following this one closely!

Did you get a chance to test ride one before now? Just curious as when I last rode one I felt the BB was very low and was striking pedals where I normally wouldn't have had to think about it. Handled brilliantly on the descents as a trade off though, so I guess it was worth having to be a little more careful with the pedalling!

I didn't tested it, but on the bikeradar review said that the bottom bracket was a little low and pedals striked once in a while.

I received the Sram X.0 10 spd Rear Derailleur and had a Specialized phenom saddle. I opted to take out the leather of the saddle since it was horrible. :oops:

So the saddle didn't work out for you I notice. How come? Hmm if I only I was inthe States I consider taking it off your hands.

It was good for short rides but after 3 hours I've been dealing with discomfort.

Chris, that's exactly the frame I'm thinking about as a replacement to my 10 year old Element TSC Scandium.

I think the BB is the same as my old bike, but other than that, what's your opinion?

That's not good. Are you still selling it? Would you send it to New Zealand?

So what are you running on it now instead?
