Rocky Mountain Instinct

Billy’s Instinct


The Build

Billy’s main focus when building up his Instinct was to create the perfect race bike for the Trans-Cascadia multi day race. It would also have to serve as a great all mountain trail bike for riding all over the Cascades. This is why he choose the Rocky Mountain Instinct BC edition. With a little more downhill oriented geometry and an increase in travel (155mm rear and 160mm front) the BC edition is built for long days of earning your turns on big alpine descents.
