Please Note: This sale for a DEMO bike which has been lightly used for test rides. The original seatpost and saddle have been changed out for a Thomson Elite post and WTB Silverado saddle. Aside from that, the bike is fully functional, ready to ride and still covered under the manufacture warranty.
Rocky Mountain is a semi- custom bike manufacturer, that is based (and builds bikes) out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Since they are not pumping out hundreds of thousands of bikes a year, they are able to take their time and ensure that every Rocky Mountain is the best it can be.
With World Cup wins, countless championships, and victories at every major international stage race to its credit, not many other bikes have a resume quite like the Vertex. The Vertex 990 RSL is a race ready bike. The FORM C13 Hi Mod carbon smoothwall monocoque frame has a tapered head tube, and press fit bottom bracket, is just the beginning of this game changing 29”er. Rocky Mountain has spent a lot of time and money into researching different geometry models for the Vertex. With a head angle of 70.25°, it’s steep enough to go down- hill without going over the bars (or feeling like it.) Yet it is upright enough to keep you climbing at maximum efficiency.

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.
