I may have a Medium for Sale. Email in profile if interested… They look a bit like this :
Rev was a bit flexy with a straight steerer. Replaced by an x-fusion Slant which has been brilliant. Last properly ridden in the Alps where it was superb. It’s a properly sorted ‘poppy’ bike that doesn’t ride like a 6 inch bike until you need it to.
It also proved to me that there are limits I’ll never get close to reaching. Hence considering it moving on.Posted 4 years agofatgitMember
Mattbee-don’t mean to be smug or owt but I have a Rocket and a Bandit albeit the latter is a 29erPosted 4 years ago
Both fantastic bikes and have some cross over in the type of rides I take them on.
Buy either and you won’t be disappointed. Didn’t ride the Rocket much when I bought the Bandit and even considered splitting and selling but then decided to take it to Spain in September so thought I would get used to it again. 4 rides on I remember why I thought it so good in the first place.
It’s a large orange with Hope/Flow wheels, 970 XTR kit, reverb and Fox 32 DRCV 150 mm forks (in black as it happens and I think it looks nice).
Considering some Fox 34 or new Pikes but not sure I really need them-that’s never stopped me before though Ha Ha
I’m leaning towards a black rocket now rather than orange, as I want to get a new set of pike’s on there and the 150mm travel solo air is only available in black lower (tubes are black coated on all versions), and I just don’t see it going well with an orange (and white) frame.
They have been on order for a long time though… :/
As for 650b, if they did make one would it still be able to retain the character that has made the 26″ rocket a hit with people..?Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember
I rode one last year, a huge amount of fun and rides a lot lighter than it really isPosted 4 years ago
Only thing stopping me getting is the fact that I can’t afford one 🙁
