First post here, hailing from Canada, hope ppl don't mind! :D

Thought I'd share my Cirrus here, as this is one of the place I have found a few fellow owners!

Since originally posting my bike here, I've done a LONG string of changes to my bike. Ah the curse of RB! updated Aug 6, 12 :twisted:

Hi Elev12k,

Thanks for the welcome. So you never even TRIED to ask the girl for her name and number??? :wink:

I use to owned a Rocky Mountain Experience (Cirrus little brother) which got stolen. Unfortunately I couldn't replace it with another Experience, but luckily I found myself the Cirrus frame at one of my local LBS. Had to save up for a couple of years before building it up.

I have a spare classic Flite saddle with ti rails mounted on a Syncro pro post for when i do trails. the Flite gelflow, xy post and rear deflector is for when i commute to work. can't afford to get too dirty arriving in the morning. no showering facilities unfortunately! :lol:

Welcome onboard!

thanks guys. i'll post up a pic without the "guards" on when i get a chance. yeah i instantly fell in love with the geometry of the cirrus/experience frame. and when i first laid eyes on the amp forks, i knew instantly they had to be mated together!

i'm thinking of sourcing a race face turbine lp crankset and slapping it on. silver cranks arms and black rings. what do ppl think? is there anything i have to worry about when i finding a set to fit onto my bike?
