2021 Rocky Mountain Instinct Powerplay – Jesse Melamed’s custom build

December 15, 2020

"Every time I have ridden a Rocky Mountain Powerplay over the last few years I have a riot of a time. I usually can't stop smiling. Now that I have one of my own I can't wait to get out and find some hill-climb challenges and explore some new trails. It will be the perfect tool for when I need a rest day but still want to get out and ride!"
