Wow - what a great pic of my bike! Miles more detailed than the catalogue pic I've used to base my build one.

What book is it?

BTW the Experience came with a rock ring as standard kit, not sure any other RM had one at all.

Rocky Mountain themselves describe it as a trials bike in the catalogue, but I don't think it's in the hop hop hop style, more like getting over very tough terrain, rocky etc.
Mind you, trials back then used the same bikes as you used for XC so this would have been an ideal crossover bike to do all disciplines.
You can have a look at mine tomorrow. Not far off that pic in the book!
