ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH WHEEL BICYCLES STILL IN BUSINESS?
« on: March 06, 2019, 12:25:28 PM »
Does anyone know if Paul Rust's ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH WHEEL BICYCLE COMPANY in Colorado Springs, CO. is still in business?
If so, how do you contact them?

I don't think they are.  I think he was killed in some sort of bike accident

here is a link to a story about the death of Mike Rust, Paul's brother. There has been confusion of the two bike builders. The only reference to whether or not Paul is still building bikes is where the author comments on the movie made about the brothers. He said, back in the 1980s and 1990s they built bikes. He doesn't say they are still building bikes or anything more than that.  Strange!

Last I spoke to Paul, he was done making bikes close to 2 years back at this point.
