Such different bikes but the Stumpy Pro and the SBike are the ones attracting my interest so far this month. Both are pristine.

Not going to split the Muddyfox vote by entering my Sorcerer this month but the Alu Pro and the super clean Stumpie (green) were the stuff I used to drool over BITD, had both brands but there's only one keeper for me.

Rocky Mountain TiBOLT


... I've heard of just eight direct via bike action (- the german RM distributor) imported frames between 1993 and 1995...

…ridden by the best …

…hidden from the rest …

After I read an article [a friend did scan and finally send to me] I was so impressed that I decided to start searching for the frame in the right size: 18,5inch (it was just painful for me and took over 14 months). I guess it was kind of destiny: I got one - even with the bill and new decals. The aura of the TiBOLT frame just cries: "... ride me - make me muddy ...". It would 've been a shame not using this bike!: the geometry and stiffness is just awsome for a mid '90 ti frame: especially the rear-end of the frame - ovalized seat stays and top tube - is going to give you remarkable face advance.. <3

Id like to put this forward for consideration....

Bought new by me, for the 89/90 race season, used and abused for many many years, and after some encouragement from one or two RB members, i brought back from the dead to be used and loved again.

One of the few bikes i still own that i have completely restored myself, and with exception of the pedals and the seatpost, the spec is pretty much how i rode it Bitd.

After reading the discussion on the current thread below, i thought i would put my oldest and most used bike into the comp, its not boutique, its not a unicorn, but after 22 years of ownership she still rides well, and sums up my reason for being a member on this site.

I know there are equally as many members that dislike a kona as much as those that love them, but im sure for each of us, there is a bike that sparked the fuel that ignited the fire....which became a love for mountain bikes, and this is mine.!!!
