    Anybody riding a Spot Rocker SS?

    It looks like an awesome bike. Anybody rocking the Gate belt drive and the Spot? Thanks.

    I think the Honey Badger looks likes a much better option IMO.... The styling may not be for everybody though. I have ridden a belted Spot Rocker and it was smooth... Prob. can't go wrong with either option....

    I bought one of the first Rockers made and still love it.The belt drive works well once set up properly. I have not had to change the belt or rings after 3 years of ridding and this is my go to bike, more miles and smiles on this then my other 2 bikes. There are some great deals on Rockers now with the Honey Badger coming out. I have been thinking its time for a change, just haven't found a single speed I like better.

    Perfect geometry IMO (esp the 69deg HA). If I ever spring for a custom steel or ti frame, I'll likely model the numbers after the Rocker.

    I will say that I wish they still made the steel Rocker frames in Colorado (I believe they are only making their ti frames in Golden these days).

    The Honey Badger comes with some Manipoo fork and is butt ugly.

    I actually really like the lines of the bike a lot.... And I wouldn't be getting the complete bike anyway to care about its fork.... All to their own

    I had a Spot OX platinum frame which was made in Golden before the rocker and i was not that impressed with the geometry. The chainstays were too long for my liking. The frame did ride really nice though. I replaced it with a bystickel that i could run the chainstays at16.25.
    Talk about fun!

    The new center line gates belt drive is a huge improvement and as said above pick it up at theclymb.com and save a huge amount.

    Long stem is the only thing I noticed on it but that may suit some.

    All round it is a very good bike at this discount price (original price is a little steep).
