I picked up this really nice Rocky Mountain from a gentleman in Black Mountain who had replaced it with an e-bike. It was in great shape and I rode cleaned it up and rode it as my winter bike in 21-22. In the fall of 22, someone came to look at my shop and liked the Whistler so I decided to rebuild it and sell it to him.
This was such a joy to ride and a really fun rebuild. It was in excellent condition and everything went smoothly. It had a really cool 1 1/8" threadless front fork that was rigid. Something I've not seen before and will make it easy to update it to a modern cockpit in the future. For that reason, I struggled to sell it. It received a new bottom bracket, new tires and tubes, new cables and housing and new grips.
