    Frame ID help?

    I'm thinking about buying a second-hand Rocky Mountain frame. But, I'd like to know the model and year so I can determine what travel fork matches the geometry.

    Here's a pic provided by the seller:

    He also provided the following info:
    The SN from the bb is PRK0451249. I dont have the invoice, but the site purchase history shows Rocky Mountain Urban Bike Frame Green 13.5.
    My google searches haven't turned up a match on this frame. Does anyone know what model/year it is?

    That looks like a very small Ladies Only version of one of the urban 26" commuter bikes judging by the rack eyelets, V-brake bosses and no disc tabs, so it was likely designed a round a rigid 26" fork.

    Maybe a 2007 Metro 30 (although these were a 700C wheel bike)

    Thank you for the response. I sent an email off to Rocky Mountain and haven't yet received a reply.

    I thought about purchasing this frame to build up a 26'er for one of my kids (10yo). In your opinion, do you think it would take an 80mm fork OK? Or, should I look for higher/lower travel?

    If the bosses are set for 700c wheels, would I be able to fit a 26" wheel properly for braking?
