Spot Brand’s New Belt Driven Rocker Ti SS 29er Hardtail & Mod Disc Cyclocross Bikes

Spot Brand Rocker Ti singlespeed belt drive 29er mountain bike

Spot Brand’s new Rocker Ti SS has an oversized 3/2 titanium frame that’s made specifically for Gates’ belt drive.

Uses an updated Kobe dropout with dual tension screws to fix belt/chain tension and prevent pull back from braking forces (shown below). Dropout has a shaped, snap-in cutout that pops the wheel into place, giving a tactile feel letting you know the wheel’s all the way in. It also let’s the belt tension hold the wheel in place while you tighten the skewer or axle bolt. It’s a little touch, but something that’s sure to be appreciated when fixing a flat trailside.

Frame has a 44 headtube and PFBB30 bottom bracket. Complete bike will come with the new Fox 32 CTD fork, New Mavic Crossmax SLR 29 wheels and X0 cranks with Gates belt drive.

On left, note the backwards “P” shape of the axle dropout. As you pull the wheel in, it snaps into place and stays there. As always, Spot’s dropouts put the weight of the bike and rider on a larger platform rather than relying on just the mounting bolts to support everything.

Spot Brand Mod Disc brake steel singlespeed cyclocross bike

New Mod Disc is a new disc brake version of their Mod cyclocross bike. It also gets the belt drive and Kobe dropouts.

Yeah can someone clarify pricing on the complete Mod disc? Frame alone was $1,399 last year.

Pricing corrected. It’s $1,399 for the frame only and $3,399 for the complete bike. Sorry for any confusion.

Will there be a titanium version of the cyclocross and different colors?
