The Rockstar is a 100mm full suspension bike by design, and the rear end is tuned pretty firm.
Without knowing that the fork was set incorrectly, the bike actually felt like a 80mm race bike all around. It wasn’t until I confirmed with Titus that it was, indeed, 100mm travel that we realized the fork was too low. All that said, once we figured it out, we reset the travel in the Rockshox SID to 100mm and things got a bit better. The carbon stays are curvy, but they would benefit from stiffer connections and a one-piece design. We’re playing armchair engineer here, but we think the rear end could be redesigned to solve the problem.
I had to contact Michael Golinski to get information from them, and they sent me an email newsletter (LATE). Want to Contribute?We’re always looking for enthusiastic, positive and talented writers that know their way around both a bicycle and sentence structure. We started out with high expectations, which can either put a halo on a bike during the first rides or immediately become a curse.
As mentioned when we first received the bike, the alloy front end was being made by Sapa, and they ordered enough inventory to hold them for a bit while they find a new US manufacturer.
It corners quickly through the tightest singletrack, swallowing 90? turns, and practically begs you to throw it around, lean it over, and push its limits like every day was race day. Our test bike was 26lb 10oz with house brand cockpit parts and an X0 drivetrain, Rubena tires and Crank Brothers wheels. Come into a big turn at speed, even a banked one, and you find yourself readjusting your line mid-turn to compensate for the rear end’s initial lag then snap. Larger diameter pivots would help a little, but making the chain- and seatstay sections a lot stronger & stiffer and adding a thru-axle would likely rid the Rockstar of its handling ills. Under compression, the cable housing bowed out and tended to remain flexed outward a little bit more each time it squished down. Golisnki says they’re 100% committed to keeping production and assembly in the US of A.
They wanted me to do little events to praise their company, and I would earn incentives like T-shirts, or whatnot.
We also started out with some unknown technical issues that made the bike a real curiosity on the trail until things were sorted out.
In order to avoid biases and preconceived notions about any bike we get in for review, we try to ride them a few times before we dive into the manufacturer’s story about them. Unlike some FSR designs that can be overly active, the Rockstar didn’t bob or float, it just took the edge off without getting all mushy on us.

We played with a lot of damping and air pressure settings, but when sag was set properly, the bike was just very firm. Some of this can be attributed to the relatively low weight at under 27 pounds, but I think a lot more can be attributed to the rear wheel geometry which tucks the wheel closer and more underneath the seat tube than previous versions and a lot of full suspension 29ers. Despite appearances, the geometry seemed well balanced front to rear…I never felt like I was going to go over the bars or couldn’t get traction on a climb. Just removing the tubes and adding sealant dropped a bit of rotating weight, and other smart upgrades could get you under 26lbs without breaking the bank. On the low speed stuff, you can pick your way through stuff fine, but high speed turns just weren’t fun. As is, the pivots are rather small, and the stays seem a bit thin compared to many other modern bikes. We could pull it back tight by yanking the slack up near the headtube, but a few big hits and it was right back out there rubbing our thighs.
They’re working on offering complete builds with an online drop down menu to let you build it the way you want it. They gave me two years of bike frustration due to rear triangle crazy flex on the FTM aluminum and carbon. While Colin didn’t notice it, Trucker and I both felt far too much squirm in any sort of moderate to hard cornering. I really hoped the stiffer wheels would solve the problem, but they had virtually no impact on rear end handling. And having never ridden this model before, there was no way of knowing what we were feeling wasn’t what Titus intended. Even with swapping to SRAM’S carbon-rimmed RISE 60 wheels, the flex was still there, so it was definitely coming from the frame. When in a long hard turn such as a banked, high-speed switchback the rear wheel would feel like it wasn’t quite in line with the rest of the bike and would have to snap around twice to get back in line almost like it was following some sort of S-curve behind you. Basically, in high lateral stress conditions it felt a little like the rear wheel was riding in sand.
And although they raised the bottom bracket height, I still found myself catching pedals and the 2×10 chainring from time to time.
That being said, if I could embark on a Freaky Friday body switching scenario in which I dropped the junk in my own trunk and ended up in the body of a 150lb.
