    *****

    One of the best all-around 27.5" trail bikes I've ridden. Similar in climbing to the Santa Cruz Bronson, but a better descender.

    Pros
    Light, efficient, great looking bike. Adjustable geometry.

    One bike quiver, gets the job done

    For a rider that likes to enjoy all aspects of riding...tech climbing/descents, jumps, drops, wheelies, ollies...

    Pros
    Ability to tune in slack angle for individual rider, great balance, loves to wheelie (in a fun way, not the accident way)

    Cons
    Plastic/like seat, but for $100 you can get the one that fits your own bum...not for the rider who wears spandex and counts wattage.

    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
    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

    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
    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.

    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.

    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.
