Spot named the successor to their vaunted Rocker the Honey Badger. Why? Because it doesn’t care what kind of sh*t you put down in front of it. Then Spot gave it a true-to-nature honey badger color scheme. If you’re going to name a bike after an animal, it should be the same colors as the animal.

We deal in the Honey Badger by special order only, so prepayment is required. We would typically need 1-2 weeks to get the bike in, build it, test ride it, dial it, and either pack it up and ship it to you or have you come in to tweak the fit. Shipping generally costs about $90, with full insurance. To place your order, click on the orange “shop now” button at the top of the page or give us a shout at 503 954-2039. Spot has sizing, component, and all other information here. This is what Spot says about Honey Badger. For those who enjoy taking on just about anything on a single-speed. And for those who enjoy putting the over-geared, fully-kitted peeps in a world of envy, the Honey Badger is a must-have fun machine. We spent thousands of hours on the details to enhance the riding experience. Like Animal-Leg Seatstays and a new Time-Trial Cutaway Seattube for 82% more vertical compliance over the Rocker – that means better traction and a shocking level of comfort. We further refined the geometry, created a Crenelated Downtube Gusset, and a CNC machined tapered headtube, providing stiffness and stability for remarkable steering control. And single-speeding is at its purest with the buttery Gates Carbon Drive CenterTrack drivetrain. Use it on any day, any trail, for whatever reason. To be honest, the Honey Badger doesn’t care.
