Rocky Mountain is jumping in the full-suspension, plus-tire game with its new carbon Pipeline: a bike with 150 mm front suspension, 130 mm rear and room for 27plus tires (up to 3.25 inches). The bike is 1x-specific, features internal cable routing, stealth-dropper routing, a PressFit BB92 bottom bracket, Boost spacing and is offered in sizes from small to extra large.
Rocky Mountain’s “Ride-9” system allows riders to adjust the frame geometry and suspension rates for riding styles, terrain and rider weight. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chip inserts that move on two separate axis.
The top-end Pipeline, the 770 MSL, comes equipped with a Fox 34 Float Factory 150 fork, Fox Float DPS Factory 130 rear shock, full Shimano XT components, Race Face Turbine crankset, Maxxis Rekon EXO 27.5×2.8 tires and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post. MSRP: $4800 USD.
The 750 MSL utilizes a RockShox Yari RC 150 fork, RockShox Monarch RT Debonair 130 rear shock, a mix of Shimano components, and the same tires and dropper as its big brother. MSRP: $4000 USD.
