I miss seeing those bikes around!
It's cool that Rocky made a Cromo XC bike for so long - like Kona with the Kilauea.


I think there's been a Blizzard produced every year since 1985 (presumably Paul Brodie built that one?).
The 2009 blue/white version looks superb, and I believe that they've increased the seat tube size (or, rather, reduced the wall thickness) to take a 27.2mm post instead of 26.8mm.
At least there's a bigger choice in that size (including the Gravity Dropper 8) ).

Hi John,

No mate, I've decided that as I've got it I might as well keep it and ride (and appreciate) it more than I have done recently.
For some reason I've sometimes felt a bit indifferent about it, although for no good reason - probably only because it feels heavy and a bit "dead " after riding my singlespeed a lot.
Actually though, for technical trail riding I think (for me) it would be hard to beat ...

Andy.
