GOLDEN, Colo. (August 4, 2020) – With deep roots in Singlespeed racing and hardtail riding, Spot is launching two Carbon Rocker models designed for fast and light XC hot laps and long adventures deep into the mountains. The Rocker SS and Rocker Geared are available for pre-order immediately on spotbikes.com with the first deliveries in October.
“Hardtail riding and single speeding are where many of us found our love for mountain biking,” says Spot CEO Andrew Lumpkin. “We decided to re-launch our beloved Rockers in carbon to amplify and modernize the pure and simple qualities we love about hardtailing.” Both models feature lightweight carbon frames (starting at 2.8 lbs.) and steep seat tube angles for nimble climbing, and dropper posts and modern geometry for fast and flowy descents. The Rocker SS features a super-strong red-
hot belt drive for low-maintenance simplicity.

Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
