Here's a Canadian XC Hardtail that I put together over the last couple of days.

Rocky Mountain Vertex 50






I was bored so this is the result. Bike is a bit of a frakenbike from my old Taos. Just transferred everything over but with the added inclusion of an XT Chainset and smaller diameter Seatpost and seatclamp. Quite a nice bike and the frame is in a 9/10 condition. I've put some helicopter tape on the most vulnerable areas and for the life of me I can't understand why people don't do this as soon as they get a new bike. I also always stick some on the cranks to stop the shoe rub. Ideally it should have F100's but the F80's seem fine.

Is it a keeper - prob not :)
