Blowing a gale and lashing with rain yesterday afternoon. So woosed out on ride and offered a few parts up to the Proflex I accquired in the morning.Bit short of parts so had to completely strip the Rocky mountain for the moment. I like it a lot,what do you think?
In dire need of a rear mech hanger for it and a front mech but apart from that I think it will pretty much stay like this and i'll source other bits for the RM.

Looks great 8) , gotta say though i prefer the earlier (92-93) Proflex but only for nostalgic had one BITD reasons, the later design is probably better for riding, i think the early one had 2" of travel at best.
