Those strange shaped frames.
Elevated chainstays....just like some of the Rocky mountain bikes.
Has anyone got one?
Would like to see a pic.:ohmy:

Hideous paint schemes - pink, green and white?

My brother still rides an Alpinestars MTB and yes, it has a hideous yellowy purpley kind of paintjob. It's vile and ugly, but he loves it to bits.

I'll try and get a pic to post next time we go out.

That'd be cool Bren

I remember the polished silver ones they did.
I thought they looked the Nuts...
Mind you...the Canonndale V-Spec bikes were pretty wild looking. :blush:

I got a nice picture of Rocky Mountain 'Experience' bike in my book here. Polished frame. Deore DX groupset and those 'Powergrips' that used to fix to your pedals. :biggrin:
Looks nice...even by today's standards.

One of my mates had bought an elevated chainstay Rocky Mountain. I can't remember the name of it but he was well pleased when he first got it... until we labelled it his upside down girls bike.
