Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Rocky Mountain has been producing bikes for the past 27 years. Rocky Mountain produces some of the best bikes on the market because their engineers actually ride. They aren’t pushing out hundreds of thousands of bikes a year; therefore, they really take their time to make sure that every bike is of the upmost quality.

Get a set of big wheels without breaking the bank. This spring make riding on the hills a Saturday morning ritual. The Flare 29” will get you out of the concrete jungle and back to Mother Nature. With geometry perfect for crosscountry riding, you’ll find yourself climbing the steepest hills to see what’s on the other side.

Each Rocky Mountain complete bike includes free professional assembly by Jenson USA. Prior to shipping your bike, we will completely build and tune it, just as we would for an in-store purchase. Then, we'll partially disassemble and carefully pack your bike for shipping. Please allow 3 business days for the bike build process prior to shipment.

When your bike arrives, it will take about 30 minutes to unpack and perform basic re-assembly tasks (such as installing the front wheel and seatpost) using common hand tools. Jenson USA has created a helpful video (below) to guide you through this process. Stuck? Please call us at (888) 880-3811 and we’ll be happy to help.

Great bike for the price

No matter what, you get what you pay for right? Well, the Rocky Mountain Flare's value is a bit more than what you'll pay for it. In my opinion, after tons of research this is the best bike for the buck. The frame is very nice and the ride and geometry are great too. I love hard tail 29ers and have had a couple of them from well-known name brands. The Flare is every bit as good. The build-kit is functional and though it is all very much entry level components, they work well. I was especially impressed with the mechanical disk brakes, after having been turned off before by mechanical disks, these work very well. Shifting is crisp, seat is comfortable, and the tires were already a favorite of mine and I raced at Leadville, CO on the same exact tire in 2010. So, this is not a bad bike at all for the bucks.

Out of the box, you'll get a total weight without the pedals of a bit over 31 lbs. for the large size. This is heavy for sure but most of that weight is in the fork. It does run a tad large for me and so you might want to consider opting for one size smaller. I am having a fair amount of trouble getting the tubeless conversion kit to work on the wheels as well. The rear tire is now running tubeless with rubber rim strips. I'll convert the front tire this weekend.

In conclusion, for the price of this bike, you can't go wrong if you're looking for an entry level 29er. No, it isn't as light as my carbon fiber full suspension 29er race bike but, you can buy 10 of these for the price of that bike. Get this thing, ride and enjoy it, upgrade as you go and start with the forks. The frame is worth the investment. You'll be golad you did.
