Rocky Mountain Altitude 770 MSL

$4300 CAD
Up for sale is my 2016 Rocky Mountain Altitude 770 MSL (that means carbon) in size large, with a beautiful matte black and red finish. This is truly one of the best one bike does everything bikes on the market. The Ride-9 pivot chip lets you tweak the geometry to the trail you're riding, whether you want a more slack headtube and lower BB so you can descend like a beast, or the opposite for climbing, or in the middle for a great all-around ride. The chip also changes the progressiveness of the shock and tunes it to rider weight; a fantastic little tool to make this a quiver killer of a bike. As you'll see in the pics, I've taken great care of it, and honestly it hasn't seen many miles. I haven't ridden nearly as much as I'd have liked to over the last season (yet again), and with my wife being pregnant, I'm guessing I'll be getting out even less. Thus, I'll move on from this fella now. My favourite bike to date, hands down. The pics show a WTB Volt saddle and Shimano pedals, but I'm selling with stock saddle and without pedals. Feel free to negotiate for those if you must. Actually, pretty much everything on this bike is stock (as nothing from the rather killer spec needed to be upgraded). Only thing I did was convert to tubeless, which brought the weight below 27 lbs. As far as payment/shipping goes, I will take e-Transfers, PayPal (you pay the fees), or money order. Once I've received payment, I'll ship anywhere in Canada or the States, but you'll pay for that too. Shoot me a message or text if you have any questions about the bike, or want more pics of something in particular. There's not really any scuffs anywhere; a little scratch on the inside of the frame by the rear brake, a little mark on the right side by the shock, and a couple little scratches on the bottom side of the left crank arm. It's really in mint shape; this sucker retails for $6900 after tax, so you're saving over $2000 for a bike that's basically brand new. Fork: Fox 34 Float Fit4 Kashima, 160mm Shock: Fox Float DPS Kashima, Remote, Custom Valved, EVOL Air Sleeve, 150mm.

How they would ride that without dropper posts or suspension back in the day is beyond me.

Florian Nicolai's Rocky Mountain Slayer - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
Let's be real you'll never decide on a new bike cause those new standards will never stop rolling in.

@Travel66: While I can't agree that they come with "really basic components," (clutch derailleur, air-sprung fork, front and rear thru-axles on sealed hubs aren't terrible features, especially BOOST wow amazing boost boost boost) you make a fair call, which is why I'm pretty pleased to see them starting around $1100 this year. Also, my comment seemed kinda contradictory now that I re-read it; I was talking about two different tires in the same sentence. We don't usually stock Schwalbes at our store, because while they make a great tread, they just don't seem to hold up well. Our racers use them, but that's about it, and they usually buy the pricey Snakeskin version. The plus tires are the ones I meant we "can't say we've seen a chronic sidewall problem," and seem to hold up just the same as any regular tire. Also also, +1 on WTB durability (but on some tight are those beads).

@ryan83: They don't seem any different than any other tire we sell. Around here, Schwalbes in general often don't last too long unless you're shelling out for Snakeskin, but can't say I've seen a chronic weak-sidewall problem. A little tidbit as well; not sure what your wife's skill level is, but we had a lady in her late 30's early 40's come to a demo day earlier this year that said when she comes up to roots or rocky sections on the trails, she tends to slow down so much or walk that she just didn't really find mountain biking that much fun, she mostly did it for the kids. First we sent her out on a $4000 Scott Genius and she was like ehh, it was alright, but she still kinda felt the same uneasiness about the trail. So we sent her out on a $2000 Scott Scale plus bike - and she came back just grinning. If your wife isn't a big ripper, she might love the extra tire; see if you can demo one somewhere back to back with a regular trail bike so she can decide that way. I wouldn't let the tire sidewall be a driver behind the purchase.

Plus bikes are a weird thing. Great for somebody newer to the sport, and the hardtails make for fun second bikes. One dude bought a Sherpa to go bike-packing in Nepal, and another dude mounted a gun rack to the handlebars and uses it to hunt birds. I've put some miles on them, and I came to the conclusion that they aren't really a bike for anybody, but anybody could have a blast on them. It is what you make it; beginners get confidence, experts can destroy corners, and your weekend warrior can just plow over everything without having to worry about hurting at work on Monday. That being said, we don't have much for flow trails; our terrain is rocky, rooty, and often muddy, so these bikes make a bit more sense here than they might elsewhere.

I thought the same thing when I saw it in the catalog, but honestly, in real life it doesn't look too bad at all. The shock mount and swoopy bars doesn't seem nearly as pronounced as they do in the pictures.
