Luke hails from the Pacific North West in the State of Washington and is part of the Maxxis Tires / Rocky Mountain Bikes squad. He's had a rough early season but is loving the course here at MSA and qualified in the top 20. Luke's on a brand new Rocky Mountain Prototype Flatline that has been fully revamped from the previous models.

Check out the pics and details inside,


Head Tube Angle: 65 Degrees
Weight: 0.7 lighter than an Evil Revolt is the word on the street (unofficial weight)
Travel: 200mm
Sizes: Small / Medium / Large
Release Date: Launching the model at Crankworx in Whistler in August, so expect frames in the early fall.
Course Quote: "It's like a moto track out there, but with big rocks! I'm looking for a top 10 on Saturday"

 Looks good. I like the look of the previous model better to be honest, but this looks like a better bike. Long live Rocky Mtn!!

I think the only manufactuer that seems to have mastered swoopy frames is santa cruz, i mean look at the nomad, v10 or driver 8 and they all look the part, and any other company that tries to copy just makes a meal of it.

 looks, color, geometry, it's all just opinion. I know plenty of sane people that feel like sc bikes are heinous looking.

 ne one looks much better than the old one, but i think this bike could really use a v10ish style fender on it, that linkage is sitting right behind the tire right out in the open.

 i think this new bike as a better look than the other, but still they need to renew the desing, create the lines of the bike a bit more curved .. in my opinon it will be much better compared to other model's it wil give the bike a new 'style'

 Curved tubes are so awful. I don't want Rocky to end up like Norco's new line, full of swoops and waves and looking more like a wet noodle than a bike.

 yeah, who really cares about the factual advantages of curved tubing?
I know I've personally invested too much time and $ into my hardcore mtb image to risk it all by riding a bike with curved tubes.

Maybe if it had some fake bullet holes or a barbwire tatoo graphic...
