Wade Simmons Samples the Rocky Mountain Instinct 8

Designed for the rugged riding that surrounds our North Vancouver office, the Rocky Mountain Instinct is a versatile, long travel 29er. No stranger to pushing the limits of what trail bikes are capable of, Wade Simmons sampled the Instinct and came away with a verdict: it’s a contender on a variety of terrain and a ton of fun. Key features: Ride-9 adjustable geometry & suspension chip, stealth dropper post & internal cable routing, 130mm of Smoothlink travel, RTC-29 Geometry, ISCG05 tabs, & ABC Pivots.

    It can't be a very strong wheel with the spoke tension so out of balance. Wait, that sounded too much like Pinkbike.
