- Supercharged 2020 Rocket 3.
Very interesting. Development costs money. Jigging costs money. They have their heads screwed on. I was committed. If I hadn’t bought the bike I would have had a rethink.Talking about BSTs. They are based in SA and build their wheels here. I have bought three sets from them already. Full price each time - no loyal customer program, points, discount, zip. Proper chip on their shoulders. But they do seem to build the best CF wheels, still.
So, anyway, when I put the deposit down on the Rocket in February 2020, I contacted them and asked if we could do a deal when I get it - I would bring them my wheels on the condition that they would cut me a good discount on the first set. We agreed in principle, although they would not commit to a price. I contacted them again in late September 2020, when I had finally received the Rocket. They were not interested any longer - said COVID-19 had nearly sunk them and that they would not be looking at templating new wheels for at least the next two years.
