While we wait for the Cotic Rocket…
Which option are you going for? XT full build? Rolling chassis? Frame only? CCDB or Fox shock? Colour? If you’re going for frame or rolling chassis what are you planning to build it with?
Mine will be green frame with CCDB, adding Slants, SLX bits, Reverb, Hope Flows. Not too late to tweak, though.Posted 4 years agotangoman19Member
Ordered an Orange frame with the Fox shock…. Thinking 1×10 inc a 42/40t on the back for my pussy legs.
XT drivetrain with a 32t N/W ring.
Slant Forks @ 150mm
My old but trusty Formula Rx brakes
SS switch evos/Stans Flow
Easton Havoc 35 Bars & Stem
Cannot wait.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
Black is of course the best colour.
or only colour.
I’ll pre-order a Black L frame the day the email goes out to the mailing list saying they’ll do black frames again.
Spec would be full XT 2×10 (black), brakes tbd, 150 Revs or Fox up front (must be black, cos white forks on black bikes looks silly), Flows w/ Stans or Hope hubs (all black), and mostly Hope (black) bits.Posted 4 years ago
edit: and I might have to personalise the logos/badges a bit 😉davewalshMember
Pre-ordered a large orange with hope headset and fox shock but considering changing to the CCDBAir.Posted 4 years ago
Rest of build with be 150mm rev rlt ti fork, pro 2 / flow ex wheels with 2.3 butcher front and 2.35 minion dhf rear. Old school 3×9 xt drivetrain, formula oro k24 brakes, reverb, havoc carbon bar and Thomson stem.
Can’t wait to get it built 🙂RikMember
Surprised this thread doesn’t mention the Cotic Rocket 29er that I saw out in the Peak the other week.
Looked like a finished frame rather a prototype mule. So once Cy can eventually get the 26 inch model out I’m sure there will be an announcement for the 29er soon after.Posted 4 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
Had all the build kit sitting around since last August. So my ‘new’ Rocket will actually be a ‘2013’ model.
Would have liked a black one, but have gone for a small orange.
Flow EX on Superstar Tesla (with Purgatory f, The Captain r)
X9/X0 drivetrain (1×10, 32T, 11-36 cassette. Might go for a 40T bailout cog though)
Spattering of Superstar, Funn, Raceface, Charge finishing kit.
Should hopefully come in somewhere around 29lb.Posted 4 years agoroverpigSubscriber
What sort of travel was that 29er Rik?
I’ve been waiting for Orange to update their Gyro for a while now (shorter chain stays etc) so it will be “interesting” if there is going to be another UK built frame option to consider. I’m more interested in a fun XC/Trail 29er than a long travel bruiser though.Posted 4 years ago
