I got this bike second hand, accordingly to the previous owner it should be a rocky mountain. He said that he repainted the bike and created new stickers for it. I couldn't find a similar rocky mountain bike online so that's why I am asking for help here.

The serial number that I got on the BB is MAX04120342.

Thanks for anyone replying.


Former owner said that the frame should be a 2004 model when negotiating the sale. Not sure if lying for the sake of sale or this might lead me somewhere.

Update 1: Contacted Rocky Mountains on 24.07.2020, still haven't received answer we are still searching for the frame manufacturer!

    Unless Rocky Mountain used a different type font on older bikes I’m suspect that’s actually a Rocky Mountain. You could try emailing them with an image of your bike and ask them if it is indeed an older model info@rockymountainuk.com

    To extend Dan's comment, the serial number is only useful to the manufacturer. Take a moment to read bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/32872/… A serial number is not a VIN.

    I'm suspicious that the fork has been replaced at some point - the bike appears older than the fork, the fork appears to have at least double the travel of the rear suspension, and that's a lot of spacers under the stem. All signs imply the Judy fork is not original. I've never seen a spacer like that either - it might be a steerer extender instead.

    Why does the front look strange, or is that only me?

    @Criggie I didn't knew that serial numbers can't be used to identify manufacturer. Thanks for pointing this out! The fork might be original as owner said he thinks the frame is manufactures in 2004. Not sure if lying for the sake of sale or there is a actual model with this design. There seems to be a steering extender, not sure.
