Rocky Mountain is a semi- custom bike manufacturer, that is based (and builds bikes) out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Since they are not pumping out hundreds of thousands of bikes a year, they are able to take their time and ensure that every Rocky Mountain is the best it can be. The original version of the Element was released in 1996. Due to the great design, it has remained relatively unchanged. New to the Element lineup is the Element 930 29”. This 29” full suspension crosscountry bike will guide you through the trails easily. Rocky Mountain based the Element 930 around the frame which is made of FORM 7005 series custom hydroformed alloy with ABC pivots, tapered headtube, and press fit bottom bracket. In order to make the rear end stiffer, they added 12x142mm rear dropouts. The RockShocx Monarch RT custom valved rear shock has rebound/ floodgate adjustments. The shock paired with the straight up geometry allow for maximum pedal efficiency while being plush enough to absorb bigger hits.

Hi! I am coming off a medium Gary Fisher 293 (608 top tube length), and looking at a Rocky Element 9-- series 29'er.
I pedaled an element 950 in the 18.5 size (605 top tube), and the cockpit felt good. I really liked the feel of the bike. It felt like it had what I liked about the Fisher Sugar ... Read More »
