    Rocky Mountain Vertex SE 29 (2011) frame at Jenson!!

    Hi,
    at the begining of the year a was going to get the Vertex se 29 frame in small but I couldn't
    find it anywhere. I talked to the guys at RM and they said that the frames were all gone.
    I couldn't stay without a bike for too long and I bought a Giant xct 29 frame ( very nice ) and built it. Great bike, super light, great geometry, I really like it but now that I finally see the Vertex frame I want it so bad.
    I onestly don't think that there is a big difference of weight or anythingelse , both frame have tapered HT...but a RockyMountain frame has that special canadian touch.....
    Now, how can I explain to my wife that I want to sell my brand new Giant xct frame and buy an another one?!
    Maybe Rockuphill has a tec solution for me...
    Can I at least see some real picture of the Vertex frame bilt up from someone who owns it?
    thanks

    Tell her the Giant XTC 29 frame may have been exposed to radiation from the Fukushima reactor and you want to get rid of it and buy a safe to ride frame that isn't radioactive.

    Or appeal to her fashion sense and tell her the frame doesn't match your outfit and you need the Vertex to create a versatile ensemble. At $599 that's less than two pairs of flashy women's shoes.

    Hmmm, might be a good time to start my 2012 build! $599 seems like a good place to start for a race frame like that. The geo numbers look perfect for me as well.

    thank you,
    that bike is so nice! I love the blue and green together.
    Do you know the weight of your frame since is a small the same size I m looking for.
    What's the difference between the 2010 and the 2011 frame?
    thanks
