Great condition Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 770 MSL

$2000 USD
Selling my aggressive XC Trail 27.5 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt that retailed for $5,499 (~$6K after tax). With its adjustable head angle that lets you go from steeper XC to slacker enduro-ready, it's unique among its kind, and it has a cool remote lockout to change your rear shock setting on the fly. I upgraded to carbon bars and an XTR wheelset (replacing the stock XT wheels, which I’m happy to put back on for a slightly lower price). The bike is a super climber, and it handles steep Predator descents with confidence. Unfortunately, it’s been unused for a few years while I was sponsored by a different bike company. I only hauled it out on occasions when an extra bike was needed. I’ve had the bike assessed and tuned up by my local bike shop (Recycled Cycles), where it was confirmed to be in really good condition. They quoted me a $2000 asking price last summer/fall. Only serious offers considered. Buyer pays for shipping & shipping insurance. Specs: Frame: SMOOTHWALL™ Carbon. Pipelock™ Main Pivot + BC2™ & ABC™ Bushings. Tapered Head Tube. Press Fit BB.
