Hi,

A few year's ago I ran into this nice Rocky Mountain frame.
Alltough I tried to stick with Yeti's and Manitou's (at least back than), I bought it and started building it up.

In fact, it got top priority. So it was packed with the best parts I had back than.

The only thing I still wnat to change right now is the front rim. As it is not equell to the rear one.

Look forward to your comments

Love your bike. In fact I still have a pic of it, taken for inspiration at the MTB museum last time we had an mtb event. Good to see it here on RB :)

the "foil" RM head/seat tube logos would indicate 95 if they are original. as would what looks to be Easton HBO tubing decal.

The HBO tubing decal aund to front end logo are original.
As far as I know, the frame still has it's original paint.
It has not been repainted in my opinion.

'95 sound's good aswell :wink:

Nice to see that there are more picture's arround.
I almost forgot that I took the bike to Jeroen's Museum
last year!

Really cool, one of my dream bikes, especially in that color. The disc brakes are a nice touch too.
I believe the yellow frames were the TO (Team Only) edition?

Hi Beepbeep,

You are right, it's A TO edition.

Lately I've seen a simmilar frame in 19" for sale.
Also in yellow, in a good condition.
I believe it was in Switzerland.

Cheers

They didn't advertise a TO Edge in 1995, but that's the new for 95 rear end from memory. Full sus never interested me but with discs that looks nice. Same frame as the none TO just different stuff on them I guess. I do like their yellow :-)
Forks if original are 95/6 era too.
