Rocky Mountain's Vertex 930 delivers top-notch handling, acceleration and climbing. It's ready to rip with a Rocky aluminum frame boasting a tapered head tube to corner like a slot car and a press-fit bottom bracket for stomp-on-it-and-go stiffness. More than just stiff, bumps disappear under the big 29er wheels, aided by a 100mm Manitou fork. The rest of spec is up to the task. With a full Shimano 2x10-speed drivetrain, 29-inch Wheeltech wheels with Maxxis rubber, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the Vertex shifts, goes and brakes like a mountain bike with the Rocky name on it should.

The larger 29" tires take a little getting used to, and do add to the overall weight. The bike has a great low center of gravity, even with the factory bars ( and i'm 6' 240lbs ). I had a trailhead with 26" tires before this bike, and i do like this one better, the larger diameter tires do make for a lot less pedaling, and the OEM fit and finish is really nice, and should be for the price. Two thumbs up is my vote. This is my second Rocky bike, and i would buy a third, ( the first one was stolen- Not Broken )
