Pros: the best climber I have ever riden. solid on the downhill

Cons: can't get that bloddy front derailer to work properly and have heard similar complaints

Recommendation: buy this bike and if you have the extra $$$$ buy the etsx 70 for the XT components.

Pros: It's would be a great ride when it works

Cons: Derailer works when cable is stabilized by cable guides, however they are fragile and break easy. Simple fix you think? NO. This $2 part is riveted to the frame. So, no way to raplace it. Worst of all, the company (Rocky Mountain) will not support the repair, even when the bike is within warranty. Pass on this bike (Pass on Rocky Mountain).

Recommendation: Dont buy from Rocky Mountain.
