Is Vancouver’s famous North Shore getting less gnarly? We don’t think so, but that’s not what Wade Simmons found in his latest video.
Alright, well you guessed it, it’s a bit of marketing for Rocky Mountain from the Hall of Famer, but with cameo appearances from the likes of Brett Tippie, Geoff Gulevich, Eric Lawrenuk, Andreas Hestler, and Todd “Digger” Fiander, it still makes for an entertaining watch. And there are some neat Usual Suspects references in there too.
The video coincides with the launch of Rocky Mountain’s new rides, the Pipeline 770 MSL and the Pipeline 750 MSL. The main difference between the two is that the (pricier) 770 MSL comes with Fox Factory suspension plus Shimano XT brakes and shifting, while the 750 features RockShox Yari RC at the front, Monarch RT Debonair rear and Shimano M506 brakes.
At the moment there’s only US pricing available, with the 770 coming in at $4,799 and the 750 costing $3,999.
