As the legend says..."I'm sure I'm going to regret this"...but I've moved and taken this with me twice since buying it off here, and the reality is it's going to be a long time before I get round to building it up, but if it doesn't sell, I am happy to keep it.

Rocky Mountain 'Hammer' frame only, I declined the original forks as I wanted ahead straight blade forks for it and was going to go down the SS route, hence the cheap headset which I will knock out and keep. 14 1/2" c to c, 15" 'stand over' and 17" c to top. 21" top tube c to c, 26.8mm seat post. It owes me £50 so that's what I'm looking for back, if you have the patience of a saint I may consider postage at cost.

There's a small dent in top tube, and a 4 painted on seat tube, maybe someone's race number? All part of it's history. Needs a respray really, but lovely details like Rocky Mountain on dropouts and R M B on seat clamp. Can't decide if mech hanger is very slightly out of line, or if it's an optical illusion, but it's steel, so I wouldn't worry....

At least 1993 cannot quite tell from me tiny screen if it is actually 1993. Probably is.
17" frame .
(15.5" was the smallest they made but not to be confused with)
Now does the wife need two bikes...

I'm going to get this on ebay later this evening, probably with a BIN of £70. As a last ditch attempt at insuring it goes to a good retro home through here, I would be interested in swaps - I have a load of DH kit and I need a frame to hang it all off so if anyone has a little jumps/4X type frame....??
