Welcome to Cotic Bikes

We make bikes we love to ride; it sounds simple and obvious, but it's true. It all started in 2003 with the Soul - our now legendary long travel trail hardtail - which Cy (our founder and frame designer) wanted to be a strong, light, fun, durable steel hardtail which could use long forks, big tyres and proper brakes. No one made one at the time, so he designed his dream bike and founded Cotic to share that with other riders. We're still doing that today; making bikes we love to ride, and designing our dream bikes to share with you. We are a truly independent bike company, not some 'little guy' front to a big distributor or corporation.

All Cotic products are anchored with these five attributes:

They are designed and developed in Sheffield with diligence, passion and pride. We back that up with honest, accurate customer service and a great warranty.

Most of our range is made from steel. We like steel. Especially the incredibly strong, tough and air hardening Reynolds 853. It's durable, strong, feels great to ride and has a grace of appearance and clean lines which we love.

When we have customers come back to us after their first ride buzzing on how great they find their new bike, that's amazing. When we have customers contact us after nearly 10 years and ask for a decal set because they're repainting their original Soul, that's even better. We know that their Cotic has had them smiling for years, and will continue to do so for a long time to come. That's why we do this.

Our frames are designed and developed entirely by us here in the UK. We basically do everything but the welding and painting. For our all our frames this means sourcing frames built to our designs by the great frame builders out in Taiwan.

Thanks for dropping by.
