Exactly a year ago we took over famed US bike maker Titus after they'd got into a bit of trouble. Today we're excited to announce that the first new edition Rockstar full suspension 29ers have arrived in our US warehouse and will be in Sheffield early next month!
We got loads of feedback from riders about the 2011 Rockstar and we've taken it on board. The 2012 edition has a slightly higher bottom bracket for more pedal clearance and a shorter top tube so you can get more weight over the front end. We've also sorted out the seat tube shape so there's more clearance for the rear triangle and wheel.
Rockstar main frames are made in Portland Oregon by our mates at SAPA Extrusions, one of the world's most advanced aluminium-manipulating companies. After they have been powder-coated they go through a final quality check by SAPA before our US arm fits the shocks and all-carbon rear subframes and ships them to sunny Sheffield.
Because we're buying direct, you get a US-made, ultra-high quality frame for a brilliant price.
And as well as handling like it's on rails thanks to the tapered steerer and tight-tracking 100mm travel carbon fibre back end. Bargain. Get in!
