Here's my Rocket build... nothing too fancy, component-wise.

Image

I've done three rides on it so far, and am getting used to the SWB concept... I've got a 1.5" tire on the front, just for a bit more traction for now -- since it can turn a little sharper than the Xstream does! Nice handling, especially at very slow speeds and startup. It's obviously not as "aero" as the Xstream, but I can still push it down the road nicely.

What comes with a frameset? Do you get seat, steering components, idler? What about headset? I assume the fork. Did you upgrade to the sling mesh seat? Is the rear wheel 700, 650c, 26?

You'd have to ask Kim about what comes with a frameset... I got the frame, fork, and idler from RANS last Fall, and pieced the rest of it together from scavenged parts, including using the SM seat that I already have from the XS26... email bikes@rans.com
