I've riden the old Rocky Wedge with a Softride beam and loved it (after smoothing out my stroke) I'm considering a Rocket TT...

any feedback on this frame would be great.

I have one. I have also had bikes with the old style softride beam. The new beam is more rigid than the older one. The frame is nice and seems fairly stiff. My biggest complaint thus far has been that it only has one place for a water bottle.

I ride with 3 multisport guys that have them. They love them. The only downside is that they have all failed at the beam pivot area. One guys has failed twice. On the upside they were all replace quickly under warranty.

Yes, Grandemammou has a good point. The beam pivot assembly can be a pain in the Arse. I busted the lower pivot bolt and had to pay $70 for a new assembly. You need to use a torque wrench and follow the directions to the letter is you are adjusting either upper or lower pivots. After setting my beam height and torquing per the Softride specs I have not (yet) had a problem.
