I have a Cotic Soul and Cotic X at the moment. The Soul wears a Fox fork, Hope / DT wheels, XT and XTR. The X is set up with a 9-speed Tiagra / SLX / 105 mix and XT / TN719 wheels.
I do commute a 15-mile round trip about twice a week and a trip to the station another twice a week (national travel!) - the X has been good for that mix, but means the Soul is used for MTB'ing only. My workplace is secure, but bikes get more of a hammering at the station.
The X is heavy though (almost the same as the Soul) and it's got to the point where I need to replace some parts. It also feels a bit odd to be riding my inferior parts most often.
I'm wondering whether a 29er hardtail with 2 wheelsets would be a good thing? I'd ride that to work, then convert my Soul into a rigid singlespeed for the ride to the station.
Any experiences or opinions welcome
