 this thing is sick! awesome build, beeeefy frame, very progressive suspension design, jumps awesome, 35lbs(i think it's really light for a gravity bike), best brakes i've ridden so far...
but the bars are only 27" wide(only downside, but that's just preference)

OVERALL- the perfect do-it-all bike. inspired a butt load of confidence in my riding.. oh, and it comes with fox suspension! ssssiiiiiiccckkkkkk

Rocky Mountain Slayer SS 427 (MSRP $3999.99) — LC2R The Low Centre Counter Rotating - LC2R - patented suspension is a laterally stiff design that offers a highly predictable ride in all conditions. Its low sprung weight and concentrated suspension mass allow the LC2R suspension to respond faster to ground forces, such as stutter bumps, and keep the rear wheel glued to the ground during acceleration. LC2R suspension is a single pivot design, with the main pivot located just above and behind the bottom bracket. Both chain and brake forces are concentric to this pivot through-out the suspension travel, which eliminates pedal “bob” and brake jack. A thrust/ tug link engages the top link to create a rising rate suspension and the much-sought-after “infinite travel” feel. We tune LC2R to create an optimal suspension rate for different types of riding – from super cross country to Freeride and to downhill. LC2R suspension rate is tuned to Slopestyle and bike park riding • Low centre of gravity makes the bike stable and quick handling • Counter rotating top link creates a predictable ride in extreme conditions. • Compact LC2R suspension design eases the ride through bumpy and rough terrain. • Single pivot design creates predictable suspension ride and feel. FORM Technology The heart of a bike is its frame. The geometry, the material, the feel, and the way it reacts under the rider are the very essence of the ride. That’s why we’ve introduced FORM™ – the design and manufacturing process of our high-performance frame tubing. Our philosophy behind FORM™ tubing is to push the limits of tube and frame design to create the frame’s unique riding feel. Engineered Ride Quality : FORM™ tubing is a line of high-performance tubes designed to elevate the superior ride quality for which Rocky Mountain Bicycles are known. Innovative design: With 25 years of innovation, we continue to push the boundaries of bicycle design. FORM™ tubing is the exciting new frontier of our creativity. Attention to detail: Every detail in a FORM™ tube set is carefully engineered and has a purpose: from the slightest variations in shape, to wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends. Uncompromised quality: FORM™ tube sets are manufactured with premium materials and delivered by the best suppliers in the industry to meet Rocky Mountain’s strict requirements.
