Looks real sweet! Does the steel & the carbon have the same geo & clearance? I'm really interested in getting a steel model. Do you know the weight of it(the steel)?

I believe the Geo and clearance is similar ish. I really liked the Geo on the carbon Rocker. The STA is a tad more steep and the HTA is slightly more slack on the carbon Rocker. The carbon Rocker climbs extremely well. I believe my carbon Rocker weighed about 24.5 lbs with pedals. I haven’t weighed my steel Rocker but my guess is ~27.5 lbs. They are both awesome bikes! I just like the ride feel a tad more on the steel frame.

Thank you. I am now even more sold on getting a steel Rocker. It can fit a true 3.0 correct? Max for 29er is 29x2.5 in the frame, but could 2.6 fit I don't care about mud clearance(in the costal desert).

When I bought it it had 27.5” 3.0 up front and 27.5” 2.8 in the rear. Not sure about the 29” max tire size.
