 Don't buy this frame!

I don't like being negative but after my experience with this frame (v2014) I feel compelled to speak.

I built it up this spring into my dream bike and it turned out to be a nightmare. The bottom bracket on this frame design easily deflects laterally under large pedaling loads, creating all kinds of drive train problems. I am big guy (220) and could throw the chain off the front rings at will. The chain stays are unbridged and the rear shock link is attached to the top tube creating an extremely long effective chain stay length. My LBS went out of their way to remedy the problem and after we determined it was frame flex gave me a complete refund! I put all the same components on a new SC Bronson C and have no issues. I met two other owners of this frame this year and they reported similar problems. Its sad because Rocky seems to be a good outfit but they really screwed up on this one.

 for some reason I was thinking an XL. I have various friends on that frame and they ride med and lg and have no issues and they are hammer heads

 I would agree, my size, frame size and "massive quad power" have something to do with it but a frame like this should be able to handle it. My new Santa Cruz Bronson C has no issues.

 I'm 210 pounds and I have a large 750 MSL...I got upper legs like a Clydesdale and put some serious load on the drive train and I never once had any such issues...this is the best frame I've ever ridden...it's super stiff.
