Uber rare chance to pick up a sound Rocky Mountain Summit circa 1989 - yep, the one with the double down tubes!

There's a slim possibility it could be a custom variation Wedge as it has the traces of decals saying 'custom built' and slightly different positioning of cable guides to the catalogue specification.

As mentioned - it is sound structural condition, with patina on the cusp of requiring a repaint - it's perhaps a borderline call but the buyer should decide!

The top tube is 22" long.

Will post better pictures in the morning - various pictures here:

TOO LATE... TOO LATE!

Wauw, one of the few bikes I still want to own once. And IMHO one of the best looking elevated chainstay bikes. My size...
But think it will be a big cashflow to make it the way I want it.
With all the Syncros parts etc....and try to find a good painter/decals etc.

Consider trade for an interesting frame/fork with a 23" top tube - cash either way - PMs only please!

I would have this off you straight away but it's too big :(

Used to own one of these back in 1990 until it got nicked and have been looking for a replacement!

More dimensions -

Seat tube from top to middle of BB is 17 1/2"

Top tube actual is 22 1/2" following the slope of the tube - effective would be around 23" depending on set up

Head tube is 6"

Rear axle to centre of BB is 16 3/4"

Weight is just over 6lbs on the kitchen scales
