Smooth Moves: Switchback Magazine Rides the Rocker Ti SS

  July 2, 2012

When the editors at Switchback first spotted the belt-driven Rocker Ti SS from Spot Brand back in April at the Sea Otter Classic, it didn’t take long for them to ask for one to review. The result is an in-depth writeup in issue No. 05, now on newsstands. Yadayadayada, they really dug it.

“The Rocker Ti SS rider is looking for the purity of a singlespeed with a beautifully crafted frame and the latest in single-speed drivetrain technology. They are looking for a single-speed race bike mixed with the ride quality of titanium. The Spot Rocker Ti SS delivers performance, and with the addition of the Gates belt drive is one of the smoothest riding bikes on the market.”

Smooth. We like that word because it best describes the experience of Gates Carbon Drive. It’s a word you don’t often hear associated with gritty chain drives. If you’re a singlespeed rider or racer who doesn’t mind spending more for higher performance, and if you want to go faster, mash harder and lube less, then you need to go ride this bike and experience the Gates CenterTrack system that powers it.
