04/12/2023 - Real Life Photos - The New Solaris

The new solaris

Our brand new flagship Reynolds 853 hardtail is made in the EU, and we have production samples in the building. These show the incredible quality production finish you can expect if you're getting one of these beauties. Check out these awesome photos.

Solaris Matte EmberSolaris Matte Forest

The Solaris is our ultimate all rounder hardtail. Premium Reynolds 853 steel, 29 inch wheels, smiles for miles.

Now featuring our 5 step 'C-Sizing', 100-120mm fork, lighter frame and a slightly lower BB than before for better corning stability.

Over 20 years of hardtail heritage, development and character has distilled the Solaris into your hardtail allround tool of choice. It's confidence inspiring, agile and fun. A singletrack scalpel one moment, planted and fast on the rocks the next.

Solaris Matte Forest

The Solaris uses our radical Longshot geometry for sweet, short stem handling, technical trail confidence and roomy cockpit for long distance comfort.

The Reynolds 853 frame has our famously subtle and traction rich ride feel, with plenty of space for bags and bottles for long days in the saddle.

All of this adds up to give the Solaris amazing adaptability. It can switch between a high precision trail centre carver, to a 2.4" tyre high traction monster truck. It's a light and lively XC blade, a bikepacking rig, map crossing smoothie, or just your Mountain Bike. Where will your Solaris take you?

The frames are currently in production at Fort over in Czechia. We were so excited to see these production finish frames after Cy inspected the raw frames at the factory in September. As soon as they landed we put them straight in front of Darren's camera lens. Will has declared "this would be good for dual racing"!

The colours are Ember and Forest; both with a matte finish and both looking stunning in the autumn woodland. Ember is C5 size, Forest is C3.

Solaris frames are due to get our Chesterfield HQ at the end of January.

28/11/2023 - Welcome to the team Esme

Welcome to the team Esme!

We'd like you to give a warm welcome to our newest (and youngest) ambassador Esme Ward.

Esme's parents are hopefully taking the family to the BMX World Championships next year in the USA; they asked if there was any way we might help out with her extra training since she's outgrown her old mtb and keeps borrowing her dads BFe. As luck would have it, the new stock of our awesome 27.5 BFe frames had just arrived and we've been wanting to support a younger rider for a while. The stars aligned and Esme took delivery of her new bike last weekend.

Helped out by our super friends at Hunt Wheels and Sprayway, and with some choice kit from HopeTech, we put together a proper pocket-rocket bike that'll look after her when the ground isn't as smooth as the BMX track.

If you're from a BMX background it's forbidden to visit Sheffield and not ride the hallowed Bolehills track. We surfed the yellow waves for an hour or so then after some warming tea we rolled down the hill to the Velosoloutions pumptrack in Hillsborough to catch a few more laps under floodlights.

We're spoilt for accessible, skill-nurturing spaces in Sheffield, and Hillsborough park is no exception. As long as you keep both eyes open for rogue scooter kids hiding in the bottom of the berms, you'll have a proper blast. It's best suited to smaller wheels but if you're passing it's well worth a visit. Our other ambassador Gareth (A Line coaching) runs regular club nights there with kit to borrow if you're new to the sport.

The next day we joined the Women of Steel at the Steel City DH track. Jo, Kelly, Bron & Mel all made Esme and her sister charlotte feel super welcome and had a hoot towing them down the course.

The BFe performed brilliantly and within a couple of laps the others were having to work hard to keep up. As the frost melted, the slush appeared; We just felt bad for Bron as we'd forgotten to put a mudguard on her bike! Sorry about that.

Esme, Kelly, Jo, little sister Charlotte, Bron, Mel


Say hi if you see the crew out and about at their local haunts - WindHill, Flyup or Andover BMX track. We can't wait to see the adventures her bike takes her on and are really looking forward to hanging out at a couple of events next year.

If you want to build your own perfect pumptrack play-bike up then we have these BFe frames in stock right now. This is the final batch of 27.5 bikes so be quick if this is your bag. If you're hardtail curious but have already migrated to 29" wheels, then check out our BFeMAX - the same flickable fun but in a slightly larger package.

23/11/2023 - BFe is back for its final run

BFE IS BACK FOR THE LAST TIME

We now have full stock of the last batch of BFe frames.

Yes, our legendary little wheel hardtail razzer is back!

The BFe is our rowdiest hardtail. It will take everything you can throw at it, from BMX track laps to the steepest downhill lines. A BFe has been ridden everywhere, from the Megavalanche to Whistler. 27.5" wheels keep thing lively and fun.

New for this final run is revised geometry, with a lower BB, steeper seat angle and more bosses than before.

This improves cornering (great for those all important dual races with your mates), makes climbing easier (never a bad thing), and gives it lots of versatility (BFe bivvy ride anyone?).

New colours are Gunmetal or Army Green. It's hard to choose, they both look amazing!

Check out the new BFe

Maintaining an unbroken line right back to its introduction in 2005, the BFe has always been the tearaway of the Cotic family. You know the one - loads of fun, but a bit on the wild side? There's a lot of history with this little bike, but now we're into the final run, here's some highlights...

Chief Mechanic Will's Dual Champ Bike

All these stories are just the smallest flavour of what people get up to on their BFe. One guy even did the Tour Divide on his in 2020. How's that for versatility?!!

As I mentioned at the start, this will be the last ever 27.5" hardtail from Cotic, so when they're gone they're gone. We love them, and are chuffed to be giving it a big send off with the best BFe ever.

As of writing all sizes are in stock now, in both of the new colours.

20/11/2023 - Keep an eye on the Outlet

Just a little reminder that we are constantly updating our Outlet with ex-demo and other bikes, and now it has some availability of brand new parts as well.

Have a look through, we've just added a couple of ex demo RocketMAXs and a Jeht, and there is more to come. We also have great prices on Rockshox suspension forks (now including Pikes), Michelin and Panaracer tyres and Campagnolo EKAR groupsets with matching Fulcrum wheels. Head over to the Outlet and have a look.

This is just a small selection of the parts on there, and it's regularly updated as we need to move on ex-demo bikes and parts. Also worth noting that you can buy any of these new parts to be fitted to your bike as part of the recently announced Factory Service.

If there's anything you like, either hit the "Buy" button on the outlet, or drop us an email if you have any questions.

The new colours for the Cascade are matte Army Green and gloss Cosmic Black, both look stunning and we have frames in the building right now, ready to built into your dream bike for gravel riding and off-road adventure.

The Cascade is a hard bike to pigeon-hole. It can be built with drop bars or flat bars, you can razz round the woods for an hour grinning ear to ear, or load it up and ride round the world. There aren't many bikes like it, and there isn't much it can't do.

The bike has a colour matched steel fork with all the mounting options, and we also offer a Salsa Firestarter Carbon fork which saves a whopping 700g.

And if it wasn't versatile enough, the Cascade can also take a 100mm suspension fork. We have Rockshox SID Ultimate at 100mm travel in stock now.

Reynolds 853 frame with all the mounting options you can think of. Racks, 'anything cages', bottles, bags; you name it, there's a mount for it. It's a tough frame capable of being loaded up, but still has a supple spring in its step and a tearaway attitude on the trails.

Medium and Large demo bikes are built and ready for you to test ride from our Chesterfield showroom. We have perfect routes for the Cascade right from the door, and lovely coffee to help you warm up post ride.

Contact us to arrange a demo, or to talk through your bike built for you.

As of writing all sizes are in stock now, in both of the new colours.
