The BFe is our trail bashing, downhill thrashing, park smashing, enduro winning, do-it-all fun machine.

This is our rowdiest hardtail, it will take everything you can throw at it, from BMX track laps to the steepest downhill lines. We have even had one sending Crabapple Hits at Whistler! The BFe has always been the tearaway of the Cotic family. The Soul's stockier, rowdier younger brother. You know the one - loads of fun, but a bit on the wild side? That's the BFe.

With strong new colours and some subtle geometry tweaks, the latest edition of our hardcore classic pushes the boundaries of the aggressive hardtail even further; longer, slacker, more confident and capable than ever.

Want a pump track lapping, slalom winning berm railer? Plug in a 120mm fork for pin point accuracy. Looking for a singletrack slaying trail shredder? Go for 140mm. For downhill and enduro sending the BFe works with up to a 160mm fork. The BFe a great value bike hooligan; enduro winning speed, dual slalom sharp handling and hard hitting capabilities.

Features and Benefits
Longshot

Radical Longshot geometry keeps the bike stable through the rough stuff, planted in the corners and pinpoint accurate in the steep tech. Couple a super short 35mm stem to the optimised head angle and the bike really pushes you on, looking for every stump to boost off, rock to gap and berm to rail, keeping you connected to the trail while maintaining incredible poise and composure.

Cotic FM Custom Butted Heat Treated Cromoly

At the heart of the BFe is Reynolds 853 downtube, brings life and pop to the ride, and our very own FM heat treated cromoly tubeset rounds out the strongest hardtail we make. It includes our custom ride tuned Ovalform top tube which helps to deliver that famous ride feel. The frames' steel construction is compliant and naturally ground moulding, extracting grip and feedback from the trail where you thought there was none. Pair it to our custom sized and shaped heat treated cromoly rear end for the most beautiful riding frame.

27.5" Wheels

The BFe is designed around the latest 27.5 x 2.6" wide trail tyres, with clearance to spare even with this monster rubber installed. 27.5" wheels are lighter, livelier and easier to accelerates than 29" or 27.5Plus wheels, with a more interactive feel. This is at the expense of slightly less stability and easy rollover on rockier, bumpier terrain. They also more easily package into a small frame - shorter chainstays, lower stack/head tube height - so the proportions suit shorter riders.

We Build Your Bike For You

All Cotic bikes are assembled in the UK from and frame up. We have set specifications, but these are just the start. Want the Silver spec bike with tubeless tyres? Easy! Want a big can air shock on your droplink bike instead of the inline? It's there too. Full colour matched Hope parts, and add the matching brakes too? It's a click away, and everything else in between. If it's not a choice on the order form, just ask.

When you contact us you are talking to the people who design the frames and will be building your bike. We check it and build and pack it in our award winning bike boxes with the same care we would our own bike, because we know how important it is. We build your bike, for you.

Is the BFe the bike for you?

Like the idea of a Cotic hardtail, but want the versatility and easy rolling of 29er or 275 Plus wheels? Have a look at the SolarisMAX.

If you like the idea the BFe, but want a full suspension bike with similar swaggering personality, you need the Rocket.

BFe a bit much? What something with a little less weight and a little more subtlety? More trail and less enduro? You need the Soul.


Origin

Cotic frames are designed, developed, engineered and tested entirely by us at our base in the Peak District, near Sheffield in the UK. Our founder - Cy Turner - is the lead designer and engineer, and our frames are rigorously ride tested by everyone at Cotic, and our Race Team. They are fully certified and lab tested in excess of the requirements of ISO4210 safety standards.

This frame is hand made in Taiwan by our specially selected framebuilder, chosen because of their vast experience with our favourite materials, and their top quality finish. They are the best in Taiwan for what we need, and have been making our frames to our high standards since day one.

Each frame is dip coated inside and out with zinc phosphate before painting, to prevent corrosion and ensure the best paint finish. After we've agonised over the colours, designs and decals the frames are painted to the highest quality including a protective clear coat, before extensive QC by our agent in Taiwan. Once the frames reach us in the UK, we carry out further QC, and prep the frames for headset and bottom bracket installation.

As always, all complete bikes are built to order by us here in the Peak District, to the exact spec of your choice. We build your bike for you.


Frame Specifications



Complete Bike Specifications

All our bikes are hand assembled to order here in Sheffield by Paul, Cy, Will or Richard. If there's anything on the spec you're not sure about, or don't need, give us a ring to discuss. We'd much rather leave something off you don't need and charge you a bit less. Better for you, better for us, less waste, so better for everyone.

When ordering, you can choose key components to help you get the fit you want on your bike (contact us if you need help), but you can also Go Custom if you want to personalise your build still further.

    Geometry and Sizing Chart

    The chart is a guide to frame size. The BFe features Longshot geometry.

    This new approach has brought larger reach steps between sizes to allow everyone to get their stem nice and short. We recommend aiming to size your bike with a 35mm stem if possible. Wide bars and short stems make for very responsive steering, so we have slackened the head angle to balance this out, and steepened the seat angle to keep you in the in middle of the bike. The result is a beautifully balanced ride, with stable, confidence inspiring feel at speed, with think-and-you're-there steering and amazing front end grip for slicing through the singletrack. If you prefer your handling slightly more conventional, simply size down, add a 50mm stem and a longer dropper post to get your pedaling height and away you go.

    If you would like us to help you out with sizing, or are on the cusp of two sizes then drop us a line at size@cotic.co.uk or give us a call on 07970 853531 and we'll be happy to discuss set up based on what you're riding at the moment.
