    I ve seen same RM here on forums, but with disc brakes.
    I tried to find both bikes on bikepedia but without success. I think I might bought them both cuz ppl ask 250 for each. What do you guys think if it is good find?

    Personally, I would pass but I live in the US where they are plentiful (and cheaper - especially the road bike). Maybe it's more rare for you to find a proper bike wherever you are located? Have you tried asking Retrobike? They are better at gauging supply in Europe.

    Well we do not have alot USA and Canada made bikes here so old s-works and RM element team are rare. We have alot of colnago, pinarello, bianchi, cinelli and eddy merckx bikes. Anyway, if you say there are alot of same but cheaper bikes I'll have to pass on these...

    So basically you have good road bike options but not mountain bikes. Perhaps give the RM a try and see what it's worth to you? I don't know about later Rocky Mountains but wait for a European guy to chime in.

    250 Euro for the Rocky would be a good price.

    250 for the Specialized is high. Its got a mish-mosh of parts and looks to be used a fair amount. The specialized is a 1994-1995. The serial number on the dropout will tell you for sure.
