well, 1997 is kind of on the edge for being classic but I'd say this could be a classic at least for die-hard MTB enthusiasts.

Rocky Mountain Turbo, 1997

A mid-90ies "heavy metal" alloy frame with a very comfortable long-distance geometry. I could not get around that bike when it was listed for sale. Had a hard time explaining that to the boss at home.

More about the re-work on the bike over here: http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/showthread.php?t=607119

Enjoy!

I agree the model is rad,

I was a big fan of the many road bikes that were made by the mostly MTB builders of the 90s. Still would like to get a Slim Chance.

Saving all the best for the brits so you guys get a ray of sunshine once every ten years.
