Cy from Cotic on the demo details: “We will have small, medium and large Rockets to have a play on and also a medium Solaris [29er hardtail]. People will need credit card and ID for us to hold hostage, and ideally just head out for a 30min spin around the trails so plenty of people can have a go.”
Jenn and Matt went to Cotic HQ in the Peak District last week to lark about on its new suspension design, the Rocket – http://singletrackworld.com/2012/04/cotic-rocket-cleared-for-take-off/
