hi
guess no one else has one of these on here.
here's a couple shots of mine.
haven't done anything to it.
isn't quite road worthy as it sits.

decals are very faded. but can make out enough
to see it's a Derek Bailey built frame.

Very nice indeed, really like that. I didn't realise RM had made any road bikes.

Ooh, that's very nice. Interesting mix of components. What are your plans with it?

Nice. What size frame - 56cm? My friend sold a Giro on Vancouver Craigslist a year or so ago. It was a 60 cm frame. Similar colour scheme to yours.

FWIW, Rocky Mountain started out making road bikes before they got into the mountain bike thing. Derek Bailey was their road frame guru I believe. Don't think he ever meshed with the mountain bike side of the business.
