The Cart Thread, updated
on Apr 12, 2005 at 12:33:35 pm

Awhile back I asked about carts, and was led to look at the Rock N'Roller.

Finally bought one (the "8"). Wow. What a product. What a DEAL! Definitely the best value-for-money I've seen.

"Fast, good, and cheap. Pick all three."

Thanks to all for the tip. It probably won't last as long as a Magliner, but it might outlast me.

Now I have to get the foam-filled tires so I don't wind up somewhere with flat tires. My supplier didn't have any when I bought mine -- any DIY option or service that you know of?

Bob,

I have had my rock n roller cart for close to ten years now and it has traveled around the world with me.

One of the best investments and tough products I have ever purchased.

[Steve Wargo] "And where do we go to find this treasure? "


I got a price from B&H Photo/Video but then found a supplier (ATS Communications, near Wash., D.C. http://www.atscomms.com/contact.htm) who had the same price and can fill the tires with foam. I gather there are many suppliers in the music trade, as musicians seem to make up a big part of the RnR market.

It's not going to take the abuse a Magliner will, but it folds up nicel and fits compactly in my car, so I can actually use it when I most need it: with a carload of equipment. I chose the #8.

Good to know, Tony, that it will last -- it definitely is not over-built, but it seems adequate and the trade-off is that it is light. Again, thanks to those who recommended this item.

Bob,


The are different models available one I consider the lightweight version and the other one which I have is heavier duty.

Contact Nalpak which is the manufacturer of the cart.

This is a surprise to me. I looked at the Rock n'Roller website at
http://www.rocknrollercart.com/index.htm

Anyway, even if I got a lightweight version, my #8 is great. I can't think of a better investment for the money.
