Cotic Life Bikes:
down the Skate Park...

After our impromptu skatepark shot during our Life Bike product shoot came out amazingly well, 'tog man Richard got REALLY excited about an idea to get a shot of someone air-ing a Life Bike out of the bowl. I wasn't so sure, but Richard was keen and had a rider in mind. Thinks quickly escalated.....

The original shot came when Jolley started mucking about at the Devonshire Green ramp when we were doing set ups for the product shoot a few weeks back. It came out brilliantly:

So a plan was hatched. Local BMX hero Matty Jamieson reckoned he could make an air stick, but not on drops. In fact he needed a fairly upright position. To the rescue came local mates Hookit who outfitted the Roadrat with some Joystick bars and stem for the event. After some runs up, checking timing, and nervous looks at eachother, this happened...

Now obviously we need to couch this in the usual 'professional riders in a controlled environment' etc etc, but our Life Bikes are built and tested to the MTB regs, not the road bike regs, because you can take them off road. Whilst they won't hold up to being jumped on ramps for very long, they're plenty tough enough for mere mortals!

Check out the rest of the shots below....
