I just recently picked up the Rocky Mountain Hammer for $40 which I thought was a good price.

Anybody with information on it I would gladly appreciate. I believe it is a 1992.

Serial # - I91012263

Ritchey Logic Super Tubing
"Made In Canada" - does that mean welded? or just built?

It is in pretty good shape considering its age.

Like I said any info would be great. I would assume a early 90's frame would be considered vintage. I am going to rigid/SS with some retired parts.

Whatcha think?

The frames back then were welded in BC.

That is what I was hoping. Thanks.

Is it a 1992?

Also, being new to rigid bikes, what sort of AC length fork should I be on the lookout for?

Any particular forks recommended? The only rigid fork I know of is the Kona P2.

1990 was orange/grey or seafoam/green, 1991 was red/yellow or green/gold and 1992 was the final year of the wishbone seatstays so... yes. The stock rigid fork was 15.5" long. You want something in the Tange family to be OEM spec correct. One sec I'll see what's on ebay.

This isn't the exact fork though it is what Rocky spec'ed on the higher models like the Stratos, Equipe and Experience.

A Tange Struts would also be correct for rocky mountain, as they were used on selected models...

And this final fork is closest to what rocky spec'ed for the hammer...

As an example, this was the 1991 Hammer I had a few years ago....

"Laser Black" is a colour option.

I am pretty stoked on this old steelie though.

I am unfortunately not really going to be able to restore it back to original.

Basically I have some older retired parts that I am going to build it up with and then ride it around town hauling a chariot.

Going to do my best to keep the parts Canadian though. A fork and the SS gear is about all I need at the moment to get it rolling.
