new rocky mountain owner here too :D
that really does look in great condition,how's the turbo saddle? i was given one of them with the bike but it's an ugly bugger,i can't bring myself to put it on :lol:

Not too keen on the Turbo but its comfy.

It looks far better with the Turbo than with the Flite. I'm not interested in correctness myself, but the Flite just looks wrong for the frame (as they often do IMO, notwithstanding being good saddles).

Lovey Bike there! Welcome to the club, seems 2012 has been the year of Rockys as opposed to Konas & Kleins...
Flites are just so comfy! I ride one on my road bike & had no issues spending 3hrs+ on one...

Can I ask what model the STI's are? I have GripShifts for my build but kinda undecided if to go back to the STI route.

Cheers mate, the shifters are Shimano Deore DX STI 7spd ST-M071 I'm going to replace those shortly with XT thumbies.

Cheers for the offer but I'm looking for a black set of bars.

Love it mate, definitely needs the stem though. Why did you change the tyres and where are the Ritcheys? :wink:
