Rocker SS 29

Are you a mod or a rocker?

Spot Brand practically invented hardtail singlespeeding, and we consider it one of the most rewarding mountain biking experiences: you, the trail, one gear, no excuses. The Rocker SS 29 embodies that ethic and raises the bar. We sub out the chain for a super-strong red-hot carbon fiber belt that won’t stretch, never needs lube and requires only a wash with the garden hose after dirty rides. Just grab your bike and go. The Reynolds 853 steel frame in Matte Estoril Blue is fun to ride and uber versatile--add a derailleur for geared racing and you’ve got a quiver bike of one. We conceived the Rocker SS 29 to embody the perfect mix of race-ready speed and enduro rowdiness. Hence the wide 2.35-inch Nobby Nics and durable Ach MK3 rims for confident footing on rocks and roots, the wide-diameter seat post designed for more dropper compatibility, and the ISCG tabs for bash guards. Yeah, we practically invented the category, but we never stop innovating and redefining it.

Technical Information

Reynolds 853 DZB Tubing

Seamless Air-Hardening Heat-Treated Steel with Double Butted Zones. The benefits of air-hardening steels are particularly noticeable in the weld area where, unlike conventional steel alloys, strength can actually increase after cooling in air immediately after welding. 853 is heat-treated to give high strength and damage resistance, and the steel properties allow thin walls to be used, so that lower weight but fatigue-resistant structures can be made. The chemistry includes carbon, manganese, chrome, molybdenum, silicon, copper. The interaction between the alloys result in a fine grain structure that forms with air-cooling without the traditional “quenching” (fast cooling in water or oil) process. High strength from bainitic phase steel after a series of cold-working operations. Heat-treatment to the 853 specification raises the yield strength for the entire tube, increasing dent and impact resistance.

Gates CenterTrack

Next generation Carbon Drive System. Unique, super-strong, carbon-reinforced polyurethane system that requires no lube and provides a nearly silent ride. CenterTrack is stronger, lighter, more compact, and better at shedding debris than the prior Gates systems.
