    Stolen Rocky Mountain Blizzards

    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.

    That does it, I'm locking my bike to the work bench in the basement.
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.
