Hello all there,
I recently purchased an unused Rocky Mountain Turbo LTD frame incl. fork with the following specs:
Columbus TSX tubes, Cinelli lugs, Campa Dropouts, frame number 886 on frame and fork, sticker on top tube says:hand built by Derek Bailey, weighs about 2100g

Does anybody know something about the date of birth, seatpost size, original price.
Suggestions on build up are welcome too, as long as I can get the parts over here (Germany) ;-)

post on mine was 27.2

After looking at the decals I'd say yours is 1989-92. My 88 model has different downtube stickers.

Get a syncros altura stem and seatpost to match -the were also made in Vancouver!

was born on March 20,1990 according to the fine folks at Rocky Mountain which I contacted yesterday. What a fast reply.
The Synchros stem is already here. I think it is a must.

Thank You
