13/02/2019 - Win a Soul

Win a Soul!

Cotic Soul 2018

Some new to brighten your week here: Our friends over at off.road.cc have had a Soul in for long term review for a few months, and loved it. They published the (fantastic) review over the weekend, so to celebrate we have joined up with them to give way a Cotic Soul frame.

As Jon says in his review.....

"We're big fans of this 650b wheel trail machine. It can happily turn it's hard to everything from bikepacking to all-day singletrack shredding and general messing about in the woods. With 120-140mm of travel up front and a Reynolds 853 steel frame, it balances retro looks with bang up to date handling courtesy of Cotic's Longshot geometry."

Couldn't have put it better myself!! You can win your choice of colour and size and we are fully stocked across the board at the moment. We have XS for those mini-shredders (4ft 10in to 5ft 3in), and our usual S, M and L sizes which covers all the bases up to around 6ft 3in.

If you are lucky enough to win, but would like a bike then we can build you anything you like from our bikebuilder, and we'll simply knock the 649 frame price of your winning frame off the total.

I think sometimes the existence of the BFe somewhat over-shadows the Soul - people maybe err on the side of 'beef' when making their choice - but it really is a tough bike and short of dropping it off buildings it's all the 27.5" hardtail you will ever need. The head angle is the same as the BFe for the same fork travel, but it's light, lively, and tough as old boots. That was always the intention, right back to 2003 when we first introduced it. And let me tell you, the addition of the new WTB 2.6" tyres we have available opens this frame up to all sorts of silliness on the dirt and rocks. If you think the SolarisMAX with Plus tyres might be interesting but have some concerns about them feeling a little dull, get a Soul and some 'mini-Plus' 2.6 tyres in your life and you'll be well set. Every time I walk past the large demo bike at the office, I want to grab it and razz it around the yard. It's that kind of bike.

Hopefully that's got you excited about our trail riding classic. Maybe head over and try and win one?

11/02/2019 - BFe Cushion

A nice BFe story

BFe Cushion

Here's a nice story to brighten your Monday. We had a Factory Collection on Friday, it was the ex-demo Medium BFe that'll be going to a new home in New Zealand when the family emigrate at the end of this month. The son loved his old BFe so much, for his school project he made this lovely BFe cushion. A* from us!

We wish the family all the best on their new adventure, and hope he loves his new BFe 275.

28/01/2019 - Cotic CC Skatepark Event

Cotic CC

Skatepark Event

Cotic CC

Our first Cotic CC event went off with a bang the other week. We hired out the awesome Onboard Skatepark in Sheffield and invited a load of Cotic owners down. There are many people who've never had the chance / time / confidence to ride a skatepark but we reckon it's a fantastic foundation for big skills out on the trails.

Cotic CCCotic CC

There were a smattering of Cotic's being ridden, including our new demo 26" BFe, and the rest of the group were on dedicated DJ bikes or BMX's loaned by the park or dragged out from the back of the shed. There was even a Stanton - although the owner assures us he rides his Cotic more!

Cotic CCCotic CC

Gaz from A Line coaching and our ambassador Dave Camus were on hand for tips & encouragement and bar a couple of tumbles, everyone had an excellent evening. We'll be running more Cotic CC events this year so sign up to the mailing list to be the first in the know and have a read about the programme in the link below.

22/01/2019 - Cotic Owner's Beat The Blues Ride

Beat the Blues

Cotic Owner's ride

Beat the blues ride

3 out of 3. It's becoming known as "The Cotic Snow Ride"! Friday saw the staff beat a hasty retreat from our Peak District office due to worsening road conditions. Luckily the gritters were out and everyone could meet up safely at The Travellers Rest on Saturday morning.

Beat the blues ride

Our ride took us up the back of Win Hill, up to Hope Cross, and the most techy traverse along to the top of The Beast. As soon as you rode up into the snowline the terrain changed from a sloppy mess into a winter wonderland. It wasn't even that cold! Perfect.

Beat the blues rideBeat the blues ride

The Beast is always a real hoot. Rough, unrelenting, slippery and today it was full of 30 super keen cyclists, all trying to keep it upright. Camus, Wes & Philpott headed down a different track to get some photos and we all met up for the winch up past Rowlee Farm, across the Snake road.

Cotic Beat the Blues Owners Ride

Paul held the gate open for the descent down Hagg Farm. What he didn't let anyone know was that he'd stockpiled a cache of snowballs. No-one was exempt from a pasting as they clattered past. Wes & myself obviously missed the Megavalance too much so we set off at the back and tried to catch as many riders as we could. We even hummed the "Alarma" song at the top to get us in the mood!

Beat the Blues Ride

After a final struggle up the "Sh*t B*stard" climb on Win hill we rolled back to The Travellers Rest for a pint and a feed, covered in muck but not a single frown on anyones face. We reckon that's a success for a ride called "beat the blues". Richard

21/01/2019 - Philpott's SolarisMAX build

Philpott's SolarisMAX

You might have seen some travel snaps from far-flung corners of the globe, or some epic EWS images of Chay & Swinny from last year on our feeds? Well we have Duncan Philpott to thank for those. Long time friend of the company and super-tog extraordinaire popped by last Friday to swap out his old Solaris onto a new SolarisMAX.



COTIC_Solaris-3391

We're guestimating at least 5000 off-road miles on this frame. It's been to Africa, Asia, Europe & more, but it's finally time for a switch up. How many differences can you spot between the two? (There are 4 major ones, not including graphics.)

Beat the blues ride

He even managed to get it built in time to join us on our annual Beat The Blues ride less than 24 hours later. Very little beats the stoke of new bike day!

To illustrate the ease of building a bit-box bike, we cobbled this BFe26 dirt-jump spec bike together with a mix of old parts. We're willing to bet there's a corner of your garage with a box of bits just waiting for a frame to hang them on? This is as simple as it comes - a mech used as a chain tensioner, one brake, flat pedals, no dropper. Perfect for the trails, pumptrack or skatepark. These are the places you play and by playing, end up a better rider. It's a win win! Our first Cotic CC owners event of 2019 happens to be at Onboard Skatepark in Sheffield and this bike will be there to use. Most of us started on a hardtail, get back to your roots and give it another bash.

BFe26 Sale

Merry Christmas! Hope you had a good day yesterday, and aren't too hungover today!

This year we're having a little sale on the BFe26, so from now until 2nd January 2019 the frame is reduced 20%. That's 100 off. It's our classic 26" hardtail all rounder. Build it as anything from a dirt jumper to a trail bike to an enduro hardtail, it's super versatile. Maybe some of those great 26" bits you have in the shed would turn into a brilliant winter hack for the crappy weather? Whichever way you build it, these are loads of fun.

It's available in gorgeous Mercury and classic BFe blue. 142 x 12 Syntace dropouts, stealth dropper routing, 44mm head tube so you can run taper steerer or straight steerer forks. It's all there.
