Sneak peeks from Cotic’s workshop

They don’t give much away, but we spotted these shots in the personal snapshot gallery of one of Cotic’s graphic designers. The photos, from this week show that there’s a lot of machining, tube bending and TIG welding going on in the Penistone, Sheffield HQ of Bicycle Manufacturing Ltd (more on them from our story here). As it was announced that all future Cotic droplink full suspension bikes will be manufactured here, we can only assume that that’s what they’re currently working on. Seems the CNC machine is being kept busy, but there are also shots of tube bending mandrels and some TIG welding.

Wait, that’s not Halo you’re playing!
