My bike made for my city (Marseille), fast, light, fun and comfortable for our bad condition roads and non-bike-friendly car drivers. This frame is really good, quite thin for big loads but
Since recently, I ride it for some cool & short trips with friends, through moutains and forest (road, dirt & rocks), with packing for camping. And it's really nice for this too!

People who friended this bike campystamp, felissilvestris, Samba87, AshokCaptain

It rocks!

Pardon the pun (or not), but this is a great, fun to ride, sensible build. Thanks for sharing.


Bonjour Zammit, I have been considering its LATEST incarnation, or 'little brother' to be precise,
in form of something called 'Rockrider300' as commuter bike for quite a while now:

In contrast to the ones on your bike, the wheels on the '300' are rather shitty, i.e. no rear quick release and only single-walled rims. Moreover, there is a quick release -where I really don't want it- holding the annoying steelmade candlestick saddle pin in place.

Also, I need much smaller 26" bulletproof tires in 1.2" or 1.5" and fenders of course ...
*soupir(er) en raison Décathlon* stupid RR300 wheels !!!
