Another prime basement find, this 2017 Rocky Mountain Element was one of our demo frames. Bought end of 17 model year, run through 2018 and retired near the start of 2019. Cleaned up and squirreled away in our basement after that, waiting to be listed and never quite making it. Really fast and fun XC/Downcountry bike, and comes with BB (for 30mm axles, adapters available for DUB) and headset already fitted. RRP was £2699 for the bare frame, so grab a bargain!
Paint is in great condition, little bit of shorts scuffing to the top tube, tried to show in picture. Frame bearings and shock all spot on, but we can complete a full service on the shock inc damper rebuild for an extra £75 for piece of mind if needed.
“The Rocky Mountain Element is an iconic cross-country race bike. It’s been in production in one form or another for over two decades. The newest iteration was launched last year, and features 120mm of front travel and 100mm out back.
To match the increased travel, Rocky slackened the front end, lengthened reach, and gave it adjustable geometry. These changes drastically improved the bikes downhill capabilities, making it the perfect match for technical XC races such as the B.C. Bike Race.
In spite of the changes, the Element remains true to its racing heritage. The bike can store two water bottles inside the frame, is Di2 compatible out of the box, and has mounting options for Fox’s yet-to-be-released electronic Live Valve system. Rocky has also steepened the seat tube angle to improve the climbing position.”
