Stock coming 07/03/2011 18" only. 78% off! Reduced from £6685 to £1494.
Very well equiped full suspension bike, and relatively affordable now. Full XTR groupset!



Proven by riders like Geoff Kabush, Alison Sydor, and Marie-Helene Premont in races all over the globe, Element is one of the most popular and longest lasting cross country suspension platforms in mountain biking.

Technologies:
• The heart of a bike is its frame. The geometry, the material, the feel, and the way it reacts under the rider are the very essence of the ride. That’s why we’ve introduced FORM™ – the design and manufacturing process of our high-performance frame tubing. Our philosophy behind FORM™ tubing is to push the limits of tube and frame design to create the frame’s unique riding feel.
• Engineered Ride Quality: FORM™ tubing is a line of high-performance tubes designed to elevate the superior ride quality for which Rocky Mountain Bicycles are known. Innovative design: With 25 years of innovation, we continue to push the boundaries of bicycle design. FORM™ tubing is the exciting new frontier of our creativity.
• Attention to detail: Every detail in a FORM™ tube set is carefully engineered and has a purpose: from the slightest variations in shape, to wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends.
• Uncompromised quality: FORM™ tube sets are manufactured with premium materials and delivered by the best suppliers in the industry to meet Rocky Mountain’s strict requirements.
• 3D Link: The idea behind the 3DLink™ suspension technology is simple: triangles. Triangles have the best strength to weight ratio of any geometric shape. The 3DLink™ suspension system is a triangular geometry ideally suited for aggressive cross-country racing. Since the 3DLink™ design does not rely on the shock as a structural member of the frame, it is incredibly stiff laterally, creating a bike that tracks straight, loses nothing to flex, and is as efficient as a hardtail on singletrack.
• The 3DLink™ rear suspension design, coupled with a custom-valved Fox shock results in a fully active suspension system, and an optimal XC suspension rate which directs all of the rider's energy into the drivetrain for unparalleled power transfer and acceleration. Optimized pedalling efficiency and no suspension “bob” result in more power and traction to the rear wheel.
• Exceptional cross-country geometry perfected over the past 10 years.
• 3DLink suspension creates lateral stiffness and maximizes shock performance.
• Rocky Mountain FORM™ custom shaped and butted tubing for race winning ride quality.
• New FORM carbon fiber seatstay improves the strength to weight ratio
• Single Pivot design assures a consistent ride quality throughout its range of travel in every gear
• 100mm Custom Valved Fox Float RP23 shock for maximum suspension performance
• Lightweight hollow section CS yoke for increased stiffness and more tire clearance

What the original price or the sale price?! Or both!? I'd literally cry if I owned this bike and it got stolen!

costs as much as my golf
#7
Extra for the pedals!!

If the recommended rrp is correct then this surely must be a bargain - heat given even though price is £1600 as per link.

Now showing as £1599.99 and stock expected 7 March.

As Smiff said; if anyone confirms the price with CRC let us know ...
#9
the groupset is £1000 ish, but that doesn't include the wheels, these are £500 ish.
So the rest of the bike for free.. A bargain, if you want to spend that sort of money on a bike.

scorching not much you can do to improve this bike, wish i could afford it and if i could i wish i could justify it, one thing i do know is if i bought one i wouldnt have to worry about my under carriage getting sore riding it cos the mrs would cut them off, am going to look in to the value of the frame to sell on could be a very cheap way of turning my half decent bike in to a very good one with the parts of this

if only i where shorter and richer :(

So what?

If it's real, it's a huge pile of kit for the cash. Doesn't make sense though that there's a discount that big and it's not in stock. 2010 spec so it'll be old stock - doubt RM will have built any of these since last summer

Don't believe every RRP you see.

Precise, lightweight and durable kit is expensive. Material costs are higher, manufacturing costs are higher and more R&D goes into this kind of thing than the gaspipe junk sold in Tesco.

As Keith Bontrager put it: Light, Strong, Cheap - Pick two.

I'm 6ft 3" tall and 16 stone... would I be too big/fat/porkie for this bike as I was looking to get a Pro Boardman hard tail but this just seems to good to be true.

Depends on your proportions, but you at 6'3" it's likely to be too short for you. Buy a bike you can get a decent test ride on (which probably rules out the Boardman...)

If this price is accurate i would have bought it instead of my Specialized Epic Marathon. This has misprice written all over it...

Voted hot. As i read on another post for a decent bike, Quote. " If you want putting off cyling forever, then buy a bike for £69 from Tesco" A great quote I thought. It sums it up. You get what you pay for.

um ye, like the logic... :{ but i bet you'd choose a £400 Panasonic flat screen over a £200 Tesco one wouldn't wouldnt ya? Cheaper rarely means better.

Wow. I am so tempted by this. Kind of glad that I'm 6"1!

Does this come with a free security guard? I wouldn't have the guts to take this out...

Why spend 10 grand on a car if you get one for £500??

Sceptical heat added. Seems too cheap considering the spec even if it is least years model

Ok it's got 3D yeah, but does it come with the glasses? If it had sat nav and ipod dock they could charge 10k easy.
