Thanks for the input everyone. Anyone got any pix of a Rocky Mountain Experience or Vertex?

Hmm... looking at that I now think it is NOT a Rocky Mountain! Seat stays, junction of chainstays, angle of BB support tube are all different, no head gusset, brake cable bosses look different too.

What can it be?

You're right - DEFINITELY not! Thanks for quick clarification.

I think it must be a no-name special, probably a Taiwanese one.

Know it's of no real help, but I have the same frame knocking around, only without the e-stays.

Same tube set, head tube gusset, drop outs, 1 1/4" headset, same diameter seat tube, identical drop outs and cable thingies, just standard chainstays.

Was given to me by the bike shop I used to race junior for many moons ago, had their own stickers on but stripped them off years ago, pretty sure it dates from '90 / '91.

Would still be interested to know who made them tho.
