    It depends. If you do lots of dj's and stuff like that at resorts and stuff, then I'd go with the Double. If you're more into slopestyle and dh stuff along with northshore stuff then I'd go with the Rocket. Honestly, I'd go with the Rocket. It looks much more beefed up, and the Double to me looks like a play-bikey to me, or at least that's what I'd use it for. And for transportation, both look like stiff bikes but neither of them are going to perform very well in terms of how much power it takes to move the bike. So in conclusion, I'd go with the Rocket due to its burly frame, excellent geo, and good versatility. Hope this helps.

    Rocket. Way more versatile. The Double is pretty much DJ-only. And who needs a fully for true DJs? That's what hardtails are for.

    I see the use for the double on a 4x track or on HUGE dirt jumps where a little forgiveness can always help.

    The rocket just seems to be an awesome bike. The more I hear about it the more people say it can do. ALthough I don't think either I really suited for urban or park. If you don't have to have full suspension I think Transitions Vagrant would be perfect. Check it out.

    The Bottle Rocket is a more versatile. One of our mechanics is looking at the double but is rethinking that because he has experienced how quickly a play bike’s fun wears off when you are using them for transportation or out of their element.

    Seems like you'd be better off buying a cheap urban/dj specific bike for transportation and park. Rather than trying to make one bike do it all.
