Rocky Mountain Bicycles humbly began in the basement of a Vancouver British Columbia bike shop, in 1981. The employees first imported bikes to sell to their customers. Later, they began manufacturing and importing frames to their exact specifications. Rocky Mountain now produces mountain bikes, road bikes, and urban bicycles. The company has come quite a ways from their modest beginning; however, their core values have never wavered. Rocky Mountain Bicycles is just as sought after now as they were in 1981.
Though the Altitude has been around for quite some time, it has been completely revamped. To start, the Altitude features the 650b/ 27.5 wheel platform, which has taken the industry by storm. The 27.5 platform is the best of both worlds. The Altitude series accelerates and is as nimble as a 26” wheel bike, yet features the extra stability and traction found on a 29” bike. Rocky Mountain poured tons of technology into the Altitude series including ABC pivots, StraightUP™ geometry, SmoothLINK™ Suspension, and Ride-9. Once you throw a leg over the Altitude you’ll never look back.
The Altitude 750 is constructed of FORM™ 7005 series custom hydroformed alloy and features ABC™ pivots. ABC™ Pivots are Rocky Mountain’s patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ pivots. ABC™ pivots are lighter, more durable, and are laterally stiffer than cartridge bearings. The Altitude 750 also features a tapered head tube for stiffness, press fit bottom bracket, and ISCG 05 tabs. The Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 features StraightUp™ geometry, which allows for efficient climbing. As the suspension sags, you are now in a powerful pedaling position of approximately 73°. This allows you to sit in the middle of your saddle with your weight over your pedals for efficient climbing. SmoothLink™ Suspension features minimal pedal feedback so you get a smoother pedal stroke. By placing the rear pivot above the rear hub axle, the average chain torque line stays parallel to the lower link, which eliminates pedal-bob. Lastly, the Rocky Mountain Altitude features the new RIDE- 9 system, which allows you to adjust the head angle from 66.6° to 68.3°, and the seat tube angle from 73.6° to 75.3° by rotating the chip at the upper shock mount.
Rocky Mountain created the Altitude 750 with high end components, yet stays affordable due to the alloy frame. The Altitude 750 features Fox suspension pieces that make the bike sing while climbing and descending. The Fox 34 Float features Fox Shox’s CTD technology. CTD stands for Climb, Trail, and Descend. Flip the switch to the terrain you are riding and instantly you have a “custom” tuned fork for the terrain you are riding. The Float CTD Custom Race Valved rear shock also features CTD technology. Together the suspension pieces work together to gobble up rocks and roots amongst other debris. Avid Elixir 50 XM hydraulic brakes bring the bike to a halt. The Elixir 50 XM’s cool quickly for even and reliable braking. The Shimano SLX shifters work with the Shimano SLX front derailleur and Shimano XT rear derailleur for smooth quiet shifting. The Race Face Press Fit Team XC bottom bracket is stiff and helps to reduce the weight. Internal cable routing makes the bike look sleek, and helps protect cables from contaminants and snags.

Comments about Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 Bike 2013:
Great bike so far. suspension setup is nice gearing is spot on. nobby nic tires have great traction on every thing I have ridden to date. Only complaint would be cheap seat and grips, change them first day, and you will be happy with everything else. Looks great too!
Comments about Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 Bike 2013:
Rocky Mountain has nailed it with this bike. I call it the Range Rover, it's so smooth, confident and plush. But it also handles super quick, climbs like a goat and it's a clean, timeless design. 27.5" tires are ideal, they do roll over things a lot better and get amazing traction compared to 26. 29'ers are too big and clumsy.
I'm so glad I sold my over-hyped stumpjumper evo with it's stupid low BB hitting every root and rock on the trail for this bike.
Thankfully, I got the last 750 in the city for this year. I hope to upgrade to XX1 next season, drop a bit of weight and have the perfect one bike quiver.
