Hi Paul 

Finally got my frame built up this weekend now the snow is going.  I noticed the request for pictures on your website, so thought you might like to see the velo nicely offset against some peaky gritstone. 

Thanks for supplying a top frame, im very pleased with the finish and the lacquered over decal was an unexpected treat.  Just need to get it dirty now

  October 2009 Supping up the last of the Beverages

We're down to the final few of our limited edition beverage coloured frames. And these are a proper limited edition, none of your '1000 bikes' rubbish, we're talking small numbers, properly limited edition, a piece of Cotic history.



We have Medium/Long in espresso, and Small/Long in espresso or builders' tea.  Down to single figures on all of these options, and here's the breakdown of this limited edition:

Espresso RoadRat - 86 (12 in stock)
Builders' Tea RoadRat - 38 (all gone!)

See? Limited.  All the above sizes are available as framesets for £299, or we can build them into bikes for you for £635.

There's been a running change on the bike spec, with the old loose ball headsets being replaced with really nice cartridge bearing Cane Creek S1 units. They're a bit more expensive than the loose balls sets, but we felt it was the only slightly weak part of the build so we sorted it. It's all about the details!

We've also just received a shipment of the fantastic Magura Julie hydraulic disc brakes too, so you can have a disc'd up, virtually maintenance free bike for just £745.

Soul and Simple

As with the Roadrat, we're down to the last few Souls and Simples in the Limited Edition colours.  Current stock is:

Soul:  Small in espresso.
Simple: Small or medium in espresso.  All sizes in builders' tea. 

It's singlespeed season, so why not get yourself something great to ride through the winter on?

Remember, the new Soul is the same great geometry as these frames, but beefed up for 140mm forks. So, if you don't feel the need for forks quite that long, what are you waiting for?!!

The numbers:

Espresso Soul - 30 (1 left)
Builders' Tea Soul - 20 (all gone!)

Espresso Simple - 15 (6 in stock)
Builders' Tea Simple - 15 (8 in stock)

When we say Limited Edition, that's exactly what it is!

Espresso Flat Bar RoadRat
Hemlock is Back in Black

Due to being flat out on Cycle Show preparation, we didn't really make as much of a noise about this as we should have, but in early September we received our 2010 Hemlock stock.  Frames are largely the same as the ace 2009 version, but with upgraded chainstays and main pivot assembly. They are also equipped with the latest Fox RP23 Boost Valve shock. Finish is anodised black with classy laser etched graphics.

Hemlocks are available from stock in all sizes from £1,080, and we have Cane Creek Double Flush XC (£45) and Hope 1.5 Reducer Set (£63) headset options, and Magura Thor forks at just £540 when purchased with a frame.
