We caught up with Cy from Cotic at the Cycleshow to get the low down on the all new Cotic BFe…
With the advent of the new CEN testing standard and the general proliferation of hardcore hardtails in the market Cotic have completely revised the BFe.
Still the all round hardcore bike it is capable of alpine descending, twisty UK downhill, 4X racing and all round ragging. The frame is capable of 100 to 160mm forks, depending on your discipline – and is tough tough tough. Weighing in about 5.2lbs it’s no featherweight but respectable for the construction, intended use and quality build.
Cotic have also bucked the trend, and with feedback from Robbie Rickman, their 4X rider (and from me) they’ll be putting out an XS size for the 2010 model – great news and we’ll have one on test first thing in the new year when the production batch arrive. Even better news is the price drop down to under £400!
So in the meantime sign up your interest on the website and enjoy these cheeky pre-production shots snapped by Jamie at Cycle.
