Rocker Geared 29
Are you a mod or a rocker?
The name Rocker is a British pop culture throwback to the Rockers versus Mods clashes of the late ‘60s. In that spirit we present the all new Rocker Geared 29, a fast and fun rebel for any singletrack. We engineered the Matte Estoril Blue Reynolds 853 DZB steel frame to be super playful with a low stand-over height and a 30.9 seat tube with a dropper post as standard equipment. XC racing? Check. Playful descending? Check. Road trip ripping? Heckyeah. No offense to the Mods; the Rockers just have more soul, power, and style.
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.
