NEW FRAMES DUE FEBRUARY 2014 - ANNOUNCEMENT SOON!.
It came about because we wanted a full suspension bike which really brought together the grace, durability, clean lines, fun, interactive feel and attention to detail we put into all our frames and added a whole truckload of speed and rock pounding performance. We use steel where we can in the frame because we believe that it's an amazing material to deliver the durability, strength and feel we look for in all our products.
On the Rocket, Reynolds 853 delivers a fantastically robust front end with incredible stiffness at the seat tube and suspension pivots to give you the confidence you need when pushing on. The details are all covered, with ISCG05 mounts, taper steerer compatible head tube, 142 x 12 bolt thru back end, sealed, capped and shielded pivots, right down the precisely located hose routing.
We have 3 shock options available, with a base price of just £1,350
See the News Archive below, it all tells the story of the Rocket; its inception, the development process, why we arrived here. Take a few minutes to get to know your new bike...
The chart is a guide to frame size. Ultra Compact Geometry means that the frames are small and long. You can take this two ways. You can either have a regular position coupled with a small and chuckable frame, or you could go for the next size up and go long and racey without feeling like you're riding a gate. You lot are just too different to say for sure, so drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to discuss set up based on what you're riding at the moment.

Cy wrote his final piece on the new Rocket in our newsletter last week. Here it is in our Geek page. There's a fair bit to it, so make yourself a cup of coffee and grab a few mins to sit down and have a read.
We have confirmed pricing on the Rocket. We are running with four shock options which should cover the bases for most people. As usual, price includes a Hope seat clamp, chainstay protector, bottle boss bolts, hose clips and delivery.
£1,350 - Fox Float RL
£1,400 - Marzocchi Roco Air LO
£1,475 - Fox RP23 Kashima
£1,580 - BOS Vip'r Custom Tune
At the moment we don't have a coil option, but if demand is there we can get pricing on BOS Stoy, Marzocchi Roco and Fox DHX should you so wish. Drop me a line if you want to talk it over.
We'll be offering the Hope headset (2H) which is compatible with the 44mm head tube on the frame. Price when buying from us here at Cotic is £65 fitted, plus £10 for the 1.5 to 1 1/8" crown race adaptor if you need to run a straight steerer fork.
The latest newsletter was sent on Friday (sign up here) with a lot of information about droplink, our new suspension platform. For those you not signed up to the mailing list, we've put the information on our Geek section for your reading pleasure. We're warning you, it contains the words anti-squat and rate curve more than once!
For the second installment of the information on the Cotic Rocket, Cy's done a video explaining about the origins of the project, and what he sees as the key points on the bike. We hope you like it.
Here's the overall specification for the bike:
For the last 2 and a half years we have been working on a new full suspension frame. It's finally finished and going into production, so we wanted to announce that we're back in the game and they're due in mid-March 2012.
The frame is called the Cotic Rocket. It's a trail bike with 150mm rear travel for 140-160mm forks. We have so much to tell you about, but Cy's going to do that in detail over the next few weeks in (relatively) easily digested chunks via the mailing list.
It has been a long project, and we're incredibly proud of this bike.
