The Rocket continues to impress

Sarah's Rans Rocket is turning out to be a great little bent. She is feeling confident on it and is doing well on the hills. I'm thinking of getting her something a little more performance oriented than the stock Primo Comets - maybe some Schwalbe Kojaks??? We can save the comets for a tour or commuting in the future. For the moment her bent riding is solely recreational and more speed never hurts!

I had a chance to ride the Rocket in downtown Calgary. The upright seating and mild manners made it a good choice for traveling the inner city. It is fairly high so visibility isn't and issue and the lower seat height made starting and stopping a snap. Out of all the bents I have access to at the moment the Rocket would be my pick as the best commuter bent.

I'd offer $2300 max or buy a new Taifun or Hurricane in the colour of your choice with the equipment spec of your choice for around $3300.
