Before the last of the snow from the blizzard of '12 had melted away, someone stole two Rocky Mountain Blizzards from my house.
Mine is a nearly stock Model Year 1987 as shown here:
and described further in this thread. It's probably of minimal value to anyone else, but I've been riding it for 21 years, so we've got a history. It doesn't have any decals on it, so the most distinguishing features are probably the hite-rite and Onza ski-jump bar ends, and newish Panaracer Smokes front and back. It also had a newer Serfas saddle on it instead of the somewhat battered Rocky one shown in the pictures.
In addition to my bike, they got the mini-Blizzard I recently built for my girlfriend. I don't even have any pictures of that one because I hadn't cut the bars to their final length yet.
Her bike is a 14.5" 1999 Rocky Blizzard. It's black/white with orange writing like the frame in the picture below. (Note, not my picture or frame--kudos to boostin on Pinkbike for his photo chops)
Other components on her bike include:
- Marzocchi 22 RLO fork
- 170mm Raceface Northshore DH cranks on a Signature Ti bottom bracket
- XT 750 (silver) centerlock hubs w/Mavic 717 rims
- Syncros AM 100mm/12D black/white
- uncut Sunline V1 762mm flat bar
- Avid BB5 front caliper, single digit rear V-brake and FR-5 levers
- FSA Pig DH Pro headset
- WTB Devo SLT saddle
- RM Seatpost
- XT Shadow rear derailleur
- XT front derailleur
- LX shifters
- Titec Hell-bent shortie bar ends
- Ritchey grips
I know it's a long shot, but please keep an eye open in western Washington.
