Exclusive: Thomas Vanderham’s Rocky Mountain Prototype
If you were at Crankworx earlier this week, you may have noticed Rocky Mountain athletes Thomas Vanderham and Geoff Gulevich on board something that didn’t look at all like a Flatline. We snagged a few shots of Thomas’ Rocky Mountain prototype while it was parked in the village, and it looks to be a radical departure from the current model. We don’t have a ton of details or an official release date for the new bike, but given the age of the current Flatline, it’s probably not too far off.
Rocky has told us in no uncertain terms that the linkage isn’t finalized on this bike. It definitely looks like it’ll take out whatever punishment Vanderham and Gully can throw at it.
There’s no mistaking this bike for anyone else’s, that’s for sure.
Cable routing on the top of the down tube keeps things from getting smashed.
We weren’t able to get a side-shot of the bike, but if you look closely in this picture, you can probably guess what it looks like (hint: not a Session).
So who else wants to know more? We certainly do…
