    Looks like a 2006 RM ETSX 70:

    Can't help with anything beyond the identification, though. No experience on one. Sorry.

    My friend has one, but a model or 2 above that one with the carbon rear. He likes it a lot.

    It's a good bike. A friend of mine had one for a while.

    Rocky Mountain makes a really good product. That particular bike was designed to have a adjustable travel on the rear end( notice the the loop hole for the shock mount on the linkage.). This was a cool feature but also made the bike a little bit flexier.


    But it sounds like this might be your first mountain bike?

    If that is the case, then That bike will be a great bike for you.

    Here's all the mfg info:

    2006 Rocky Mountain ETSX 70 - BikePedia

    It's a rather old bike, and bikes have changed a considerable amount since then. I wouldn't pay more than $500 for it, and that's a bit of a stretch. I sold a Giant Reign 1 that was 4 years newer, in better condition, cost $2900 new, and had over $1000 of upgrades in it, and the most I got out of it was $1000. So if they want anything close to that, I would keep looking for something better.

    Hi Saidrick, I appreciate the input, I have only just got into MTB but I am loving it. I bought a Trek 4300 earlier this year, and its ok for messing about on, but on a serious trail, it just feels a bit weak. Anyhow, I have since bought the RM in the picture, it is absolutely mint ! Plus it has lots of high end after market parts on it. I don't think its ever been off road ! I have given 500.00 Sterling for it. Some might say that's too much for a second hand bike, but in my eyes , it`s less than I paid for my Trek, but a whole lot better bike...
