This bike started life as a size Large Rocky Mountain Element BC Edition, and has been heavily customized and upgraded it from there. The frame is a model year 2014, but has been a second bike for the last 8 years. I love this bike, and I'd love for it to find a better home and more use. This bike is super light, fast, and makes an awesome capable XC / trail bike for big days and fast rides.

Almost everything on this bike has been upgraded, modernized, and customized: entire drivetrain, fork, bottom bracket, carbon handlebar, dropper, wheels, etc. Rear shock complete overhaul approx. 250 miles ago, front fork serviced approx. 100 miles ago. Freshly installed CushCore XC in the rear.

Overview:

- Fork: Rock Shox Pike 120mm
- Frame: Carbon front triangle, aluminum rear triangle (95mm rear travel)
- Shock: Fox Float CTD, custom trail tune
- Drivetrain: SRAM X0 1x11
- Cranks: SRAM X0 Carbon, 175mm
- Handlebar: Race Face NEXT Carbon bar, 720mm width, 35mm clamp
- Stem: Race Face alloy, 75mm
- Brakes: Avid Elixir 9
- Rotors: Sram Centerline 180mm front/rear (NEW)
- Dropper: PNW Loam, 170mm
- Wheels: Race Face ARC 30 w/ i9 Torch hubs
- Tires: Specialized Purgatory Grid (front), Vittoria Mezcal (rear)
- BB: Chris King

If you care about the visual details, the green accents on the frame match the hubs, bottom bracket, and band on the dropper. There are a couple cosmetic scratches on the top tube and seat stay (pictured) but the bike has been very well maintained.
