Shortly after launching the Goodship in 2014, Fairdale began getting requests for a version that would accommodate racks, fenders, and bigger tires. A few years later, the Rockitship was born.
The Rockitship is built with the same Drawnright 4130 chromoly tubeset used on the Goodship, but with rack-ready 12mm thru-axle dropouts and flat mount disc brakes. It's also ED (epoxy) coated inside for excellent corrosion protection. The frame will comfortably fit tires up to 41mm/1.6 inches wide, which allows it to work with either a 2x or 1x drivetrain, while also maintaining a shorter chainstay length. The three bottle mounts, plus a low seat tube bottle mount for maximum frame bag clearance, allows you to bring along plenty of hydration.
While Fairdale obviously wanted to use the bike for touring around and going off-road, we didn’t want to go “full” mountain bike with this one, so we designed it around working with an ENVE CX carbon fiber fork. This means that we have a 1-1/2” to 1-1/8” headtube and lots of clearance up front.
Available now in Black, Kelly Green, and NEW Chocolate Brown.
