Early days but I'm loving the new Altitude (A50 model). Totally stock at this point in time
Confidence inspiring and tonnes of fun to ride.



Looks sweet! I really love the Alititudes.

Is it just me or is rocky just killing it recently?

A host of recalls and hemorrhaging staff?

My reactor 29 with a works -1 and 160 air shaft. Sam Hill is my god but he is truly inhuman to pedal dh22s. Switched to a dh34 in the back and I can go up hill again thank hill

In the words of Steve Martin - ‘a detail!’

I have a buddy wanting either a new Slayer or Altitude, should I try and dissuade him?

Rocky Mountains are great bikes. New Altitude is hot.

idk i wanted a slayer but the whole think about the rear triangle exploding was off-putting. however, everyone I've talked to around here that has one is really happy with it.

You mean in the PB test? We may never know for sure, but it seems the only thing that would have caused that failure would be someone not screwing the rear axle in, which would destroy any bike.

yeah that seems to be the consensus. Idk why they never talked about it or went more in depth, gave the bike a second chance, just seems kinda lame after Kazimer seemed to really enjoy it in the first ride.

Here's my DMR Bolt that I've built up over the past year, it shreds anything you throw at it and I absolutely love it Big Grin

i feel like if it had different colored lettering decals i would like it more

It honestly took a bit for me to appreciate it too. I love it now tho, definitely different from the normal black I see!

I get that, my bike is fugly neon pee green, but it encourages you to ride faster so that nobody sees lmao

I have a theory about riding an ugly bike. If you show up on a fancy bike (possibly with matching kit) people expect you to be a hardcore shredder. But, if you show up on an ugly bike people don't expect much from you and when you're a decent rider they are even more impressed. I rode a Mongoose Pinn'r for years and I would get the "you ride a Mongoose?!" look. Not good. I'm not the best rider but that Mongoose was actually pretty sweet. It made 2 trips to Whistler and survived a lot of crashes. Here's a pic of the Goose in action and my current ride.

as long as they buy it from a dealer and get warranty support, sure! They're great looking bikes, and do a good job of making the rider the engineer.
