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.
The Element is Rocky Mountain’s line of full suspension cross country bikes. The Element line is known for having great value rolled into exceeding performance. Rocky Mountain developed an innovative linkage system called ABC Pivot. This linkage system is lighter and stiffer than traditional sealed cartridge bearings. This is a great advantage and increases performance by eliminating binding in the pivot.
The Rocky Mountain Element 930 is constructed from FORM tubing. FORM is Rocky Mountain’s process for crating high quality materials. 7005 series alloy is hydroformed into shape then welded to match exact design specifications. Attention to detail is crucial and Rocky Mountain has years of experience building high quality bikes. The 930 also has a tapered headtube with increases stiffness and strength in the headtube.
Rocky Mountain knew that they had to outfit the Element 930 with a solid build kit. They chose the lightweight and strong RockShox Recon Gold TK 100mm 29er fork. This fork is air sprung and has low friction 6000 series lightweight 32mm aluminum stanchions. The rear suspension is the RockShox recommended Monarch RL 95mm with custom valve. This rear shock has an external rebound and lockout. Together, the RockShox Recon Gold TK and Monarch RL make for a smooth ride that can tackle all kinds of terrain. Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors are high performing and more than enough to slow you down. FSA Comet 3x10 Cranks have been selected for their strength and lightweight features. Shimano Deore rapid fire shifters, Shimano SLX E mount front derailleur and Shimano SLX rear derailleur round out the 3x10 drivetrain.
The Rocky Mountain Element 930 is one heck of a bike. Taking advantage of the innovative ABS pivots technology and the FORM tubing process, Rocky Mountain has been able to produce a fantastic alloy 29er cross country frame. Then, pooling from the industry, Rocky Mountain used an assortment of proven parts to build the 930. The bike is perfect for any cross country rider looking to step up their game!

Comments about Rocky Mountain Element 930 Bike 2013:
I ride cross country with this baby. Was awkward at first coming from 26" bike. Transition is like going from full suspension to hard tail. Easy to whip around because of lightweight and responsive feel. Less monster truck; more ninja.
