Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Rocky Mountain has been producing bikes for the past 27 years. Rocky Mountain produces some of the best bikes on the market because their engineers actually ride. They aren’t pushing out hundreds of thousands of bikes a year; therefore, they really take their time to make sure that every bike is of the upmost quality. The Vertex 930 29"er can be described as a high efficiency crosscountry machine. The FORM 7005 series custom hydroformed alloy has a press fit bottom bracket, internal tapered headtube, and shock dissipating seatstay. The compact front end gives increased agility in tight turning singletrack while providing increased stiffness for greater control in all conditions. To get you moving faster, the diamond shaped down tube increases pedal power transfer and acceleration. The Vertex 930 is an all around crosscountry bike.
