Rocky Mountain bikes

Hello -- Does anyone out there ride a Rocky Mountain ETSX or a Rocky Mountain Element? What do you think? Good bike for the Central Florida trails? Thanks.

They make pretty good bikes...not the absolute best, but certainly far from the worst out there.  I knew a guy that rode an ETSX and loved it.

Mountain Biking Magazine named the Rocky Mountain Element 70 "2007 XC Bike of the Year".

That's a hell of a nice XC bike, if you can afford it (I'd like to have one).  The less costly versions (Element 50, 30, etc) are nice also and a great place to start and then upgrade as components wear out/break.
