2015 Chromag Rootdown 29er HT

“I want a bike that is lawless. I want to be able to descend anything I find myself above but I want to get up there with minimum of fuss and maximum speed, which is why I want a 29er. Too many people discredit 29ers as being only for old guys and cross-country racers, but bikes like the Rootdown defy small-minded definition. I’ve tried my hand at all types of mountain biking but after years of searching I realized I just like being out on the trails and that specific categorization is a waste of time. I just want to fly through the woods, feel the loam flick up on my shins, and never have to worry about wiping the grin off my face.”

#6

Man that’s a sweet bike/deal. I’m not tall enough either. Have you tried listing on pinkbike, etc. as well?


#7

Not yet.
Would prefer to sell local first.


#8

Also to add,

Bike was ridden several times a week for 2 years. It’s got some cosmetic scratches on the paint and some scuff marks from my bike rack. Also the paint is rubbing off the chainstay from my heel rubbing on it. Overall I would give it a 7/10 for condition. I think the price reflects that though.
