Model/Year: 2010 Alt 30

Pros: Climb stance, travel for the XC market, versatility, reliable brands, Green/white paintjob is awesome (they should change the model pic from the blue)

Cons: Juicy 3's, I feel like there are better climing tires than the Conti mountain king

Recommendation: For the price i paid, this was easily the best option for a reliable and capable mid-range, (pretty much)all-mountain bike. It climbs, points, jumps, and descends with no complaints... sometimes the brakes can be distant in the clutch, but not much of an issue as a 155# rider. Takes drops, corners with confidence, and overall is pretty responsive on the baseline Fox gear. i'll be using the bike for a long time, gotta love Rocky

Pros: Awesome geometry! will climb anything you put in front of it. Has quite a bit of suspension which makes the downhill parts awesome but amazingly it does not affect the climbing capability.

Cons: The stock fox fork has no lockout. It would've been nice to get one for the money but then again i probably would need it that much. the stock wheels are not that great, bent my rim within the first few months. It is also a little heavier than some other full suspension bikes in the price range, but its not that bad.

Recommendation: Overall, this bike is awesome. I wish i had purchased it earlier. I bought mine off Ebay for 1600. I am not sure I would pay full retail for it. Also, the frame is perfectly built, like the rest of RM frames. Great bike!

Pros: "Straight Up" geometry actually works. Sturdy, capable descender. Like all Rockys, I'm sure this is a solid bike you could develop a long-term relationship with.

Cons: Geometry takes a little getting used to, but it's all good after a day or so.

Recommendation: I rented this bike for a few days in Tahoe. It proved to be a very capable all-round trail bike. It didn't rule in any one area, but was relatively strong in all areas. The geometry makes climbs a snap, but the biggest surprise came when I hit the staircase descent at the end of the Hole in the Ground Trail--the bike just ate up every obstacle and begged me to go faster.
