Snow Escapade

I thought you might appreciate the attached shot of my Escapade doing what it does best at the weekend.

This is near the top of Longridge Fell in the Ribble Valley near Preston, taking advantage of a morning of snow. I had three mountain bikers and a walker all say the same thing: "you're brave to be riding this on a 'cross bike" but it seems to handle rides like this easily. Stable but quick on sketchy, icy roads and relaxed enough to deal with the fire roads and bits of singletrack. Just a great bike to go and play in the snow!

Hope you have a great and successful 2016.

Dear Cotic,

I would like to say thank you for creating what may be the single most amazing bike I've ridden in a long long time. It has truly opened my eyes to what a plus hardtail can be capable of.

Today I crossed the 100km mileage point on it and I have to say it never once failed to bring on the wows on my local muddy fallen logs and off- camber root infested trails.

Thought I'd drop in a note and a photo to express my appreciation of this masterpiece that is the Cotic Solaris.

Cheers guys and merry Christmas !

In awe,

Hi Paul and the rest of the team.

The new Solaris frame has been a real pleasure to ride.  It's perfect.  Thank you again (pic from the trails of Aliso Viejo, California).

Happy Holidays.

Dear Paul,

Took my soul up to Afan this weekend to break her in.  Epic riding!  Absolutely loved it. Just as springy and fun as all the hype say the frame is...  Thought you'd want to see the pic.

Hey Guys!

I finally got my escapade built up, and got out on a shake down ride (quite literally on top of Stanage!). Thought you might like to see the result. I think the yellow with the black groupset & finishing kit looks awesome!

Thought I should send you a photo of my new Soul 26" as I'm so happy with it.

Im an English man living in Australia, so when I retired my 1997 Giant ATX 890 and was looking for a new hard tail I new it had to be English and 26". After emailing Tom I ended up with an orange Soul which I'm loving. Attached is a crapy phone photo of my Soul taken up at Lake Mtn in Victoria. Thanks for keep 26" and steel alive.

Regards Steve
