Sadly my least-used bike, I built this up from various parts a few years ago and think it deserves more.
Cotics seem to have a mild cult following, given their 'steel is real' mantra. With the BFe taking 26" only, I bought a pair of Stans ZTR Alpines laced to Superstar hubs, all orange anodised and as loud as a harpie.
The fork came with the frame and it's plush and smooth; the most travel I've ever owned on a fork and I don't think the South Downs near me are what the bike craves. I'm sorry to say that this the bike used when going out for rides with the family or beers on the beach.
