Rocky Mountain Element 970 RSL BC

$2100 USD
This is a MEDIUM 2013 Rocky Mountain Element 970 BC and this bike RIPS. This beauty has seen a few minor crashes and some miles but she's been well maintained and as of last week had a COMPLETE overhaul; all bushings were replaced, seals/oil/etc... replaced on fork and shock, the Reverb was sent into RS for service and the internals were swapped with their newer hardware, rear brake was bled, bike was cleaned, etc... she is ready to ride! Seat in photo is not the Rocky seat that will be included (it is in good condition). The only problems are cosmetic: minor clear coat delamination and scratches (as seen in photos). Willing to work on the price with you. I added the bashguard, 36T RF NW and a WT 42 to go 1x10.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
It blows my mind that people won't simply choose C but go out of their way to dig up rocks, build shitty armoring and cut roots just so they don't have to do A or B. There are definitely some moves where I'm constantly practicing as I'm only able to ride the feature 25% of the time and there are definitely moves where I just walk it but never do I want to make it easier.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
Over the last ~2 years the conversation of strava being one of the sanitizers of our local trails comes up. I think, at least around here, that plays almost as large of a part of trail sanitation as do the riders who purposely make something easier by removing a feature. We have a large mountain biking community with a lot of competitive people and strava makes it possible to always be competing. If you ride enough and know the trails you begin to see which lines were changed for strava and which ones were changed for ease of use, regardless of why they were changed, they were. That's not to say that trails can't or shouldn't change but if there was a feature where the trail was purposefully routed for a tech move or other feature, why must you sanitize it?!

Wolf Amongst The Sheep - Story About Your Neighbour's $20,000 Problem With Stolen Bikes
WAddict, I live in Grand Junction, CO, city of ~60k, valley population of ~150k, so small'ish. Obviously it was more luck than anything, I had already started the homeowners insurance claim and was looking forward to the prospect of replacing two nice bikes with two brand new nice bikes. Apparently when tweakers steal your bikes and drive around with a broken ass plate-less trailer full of stolen goods, expired tags on the car and erratic driving the police tend to take notice.

Wolf Amongst The Sheep - Story About Your Neighbour's $20,000 Problem With Stolen Bikes
For the police, a serial number is just a PITA. The best thing is a visual description with photos otherwise your bike might just end up at the police/sheriff's auction if you're lucky.

Wolf Amongst The Sheep - Story About Your Neighbour's $20,000 Problem With Stolen Bikes
I had both bikes stolen OUT OF MY HOUSE. Serial numbers would have been nice but the police didn't care so much about those as much as they did about the color/make/model. While it can't hurt to register your bike at those places the best thing to do is have a few good photos and a parts description. Both of my bikes were found and returned within a month.

Video: Miranda and Katrina's Bodacious Journey
I'm SO glad they added Ahab to the Amasa area and since it was put in it is HANDS DOWN my favorite trail in Moab. Here's a video of the construction process: http://vimeo.com/63329681
