    Help Identify Mid 90's Rocky Mountain Frame

    I purchased this 20" frame as part of a lot sale from an older gentleman. He said it was a mid 90's Blizzard frame he never had the time to restore. It was repainted with fresh decals applied - thus I am not certain if it was a Blizzard. Looking at the '96 RM catalog, it resembles an Equipe...

    1999 Cannondale F700??

    Thank you Malt for your size specific insight. I will hold off the impulse and try to find another suitable frame. F3000 was spot on you say, I'll definitely have to check that model out. Thank you. Cheers!

    Is this frame made by Orange Bikes, or Marin??

    Thanks for the much needed info pipmeister! Gorgeous chariot of a bike you have there. I'm disappointed my frame ended up not being an Orange, but after seeing your Merlin, the frame has potential. Cheers!

    Is this frame made by Orange Bikes, or Marin??

    I bought this frame on eBay thinking it was a 1995 Marin Indian Fire Trail, as advertised. After close inspection, I believe it could be made by Orange Bikes. The first clue is the cable stops on the top tube. My frame has 3 stops on the top tube (drive-side) and 0 on the bottom tube. Marin...
