    Carbon rocker

    Does anyone know the weight difference between the new carbon rocker on the Jet 9 RDO and the old aluminum one? I am wondering whether it's worth buying the part to upgrade?

    No but the frame with the Maxle & carbon rockers is the same weight as the open drop out frame.

    So somewhere around the weight of a Maxle so not worth the money.

    Put the money somewhere else IMO.

    Problem is when you run out of "somewhere else" to put the money on a bike, you end up with muzzanic like thoughts for another project bike...

    Good questions both. Trying to find out from my "deala" (New Orleans accent). I guess the first could be answered by finding out what the weight of a rear maxle usually is.

    $2899 - but you get a free front half of the frame with it.

    I know not a constructive comment.
