10/03/2016 - Launching the new Life Bikes


Today we launch our new Escapade and fresh colours on the Roadrat.

Roadrat continues in its fantastically versatile configuration, with mountain bike top tube lengths for proper position with flat bars, powerful brakes, big clearances for floaty big 700c tyres. The Dogsbody dropouts do everything - mudguards, racks, derailleur, singlespeed, hub gear, fixed. New for 2016 are the Hot Yellow and Gunmetal Gloss colours, which I'm sure you'll agree look fantastic. We are continuing with Matte Orange and British Racing Green as well.

In the case of the Escapade, there have been more far reaching changes. Revised geometry based on lots of testing and customer feedback has led to a 10mm lower BB for greater stability and security of handling, and a lower front end on the 54cm and 56cm sizes to give shorter riders more options to get their bar height just right. We have also expanded the size range to include a 52cm Extra Small size. Finally, with more than 99% of the Escapades being sold or fitted with derailleur gears, we have moved away from the track ends to a 135mm QR vertical dropout. This makes wheel removal much easier, especially with mudguards fitted.

The new bike is available in the beautiful Champagne Gloss finish (in the picture above) and Lime Green Gloss with orange highlights.

As always with Cotic Life Bikes, these are elegant, fun, engaging bikes which are your perfect 'other' bike. The one that isn't your mountain bike, but they're for pretty much everything else. And when we say everything else, that can include a bit of skate park!
