Southbridge Bkes has ( 2 ) " Rocky Mountain Altitude 29 " full suspension demo bikes
Sizes are : 18" & 19"

Weight on the 18" w/ pedals : 32lbs 8 oz ( 2010 Garry Fisher Hi Fi med is 29lb 5oz )
Bottom brackett height @ crank center : 13 1/4" ( 2010 Garry Fisher med Hi Fi is 13" )

I've got the 18" in my shop and will Demo it till Wednesday including this coming Tuesdays TT , if somebody wants to check it out after TT's , I'll loan it out and let the owner know who has possession of it . I told him frankly I'm not buying another bike but I think he just wanted me to take it and set it up and also let him know what I thought of the product .

Southbridge Bikes also carries "SCOTT" as well ...

14 mile ride this morning including some of Foley's real technical stuff :
No dabs BUT I was really nervous the 1st hour out there ...

Those handle bars SUCK ! Really weird handling at slow tight turning speeds , but I think if you change the bars it would improve it quite a bit .

Got to soften the rear suspension MORE that what the recomended air pressure chart says .

Front fork I got to play with a bit more , seperate air chambers for negative and positive pressure .

Tires , 35 - 65 recomended , I started at 32 and kept burping them on the ride .

Lower rear shock mount loosened up already , I'll check it in the morning to see if someone fell asleep on the assembly line :?

Front skewer : Got off 3 friggin times to tighten that stupid thing ! Almost needed a wrench :x , but I think I got it the last time ...

I'll do a couple more rides on it including this coming TT ... at least I'm not beating the shit out of my own bikes :D
