Well.....my 1990 Blizzard was back today from a wellness trip and looks as new i would say. I hadn't the white parts done since i don't own a complete set of decals, but it was polished professionally by the recent RBUK BOTY-owner and obviously the black part is all new.

Before:

I've been researching the make/model/year of a frame I bought recently. Due to the offset top tube and cable routings, I believe it is a mid-1990s Rocky Mountain. I would greatly appreciate any help. Sorry for the awful picture, I will take some more soon.

Here is what I know:
>It appears to be original white paint, no decals or stamping.
>SN is stamped on the bottom bracket
>Cable routes go on either side of the top tube.
>No center pull brake cable stop, no disc mounts. V-brake only.
>Derailleur hanger is built into the dropout.
>1-1/8" steer tube, Seat tube is less than 27mm
>Offset top tube.
>Frame is steel and weighs 4.5lbs.

I just realized by editing the post that roc6839 might not see my answer to his question. Please find the serial number listed above, thanks for the help.

projects.

1991 rocky mountain hammer to be built up as a rider with a mix of whatever works
1992 rocky mountain blizzard to be built with as much black and a bit of red ano as possible
1993 rocky mountain edge to be built with as much silver and red ano as possible

I got the fever for vintage MTB this year and quickly decided I would focus on rocky mountains because I got a hammer new in 1995 and loved that bike. I was under the impression early on that they were mostly made in Canada but was sadly mistaken. I could lay a better bead after half a day in a TIG seminar at UBI last march. These welds are downright aweful. They make all the steel frames coming out of taiwan look artisan.

Anyway the Edge is a lot better than the other two Japanese frames but even though it is apparently a dekerf it is only so-so by todays standards. Either way it is an uber cool bike and I am pretty excited to get out on it! I'll start another thread when I am ready to get under way and ask for help on the suspension service.
