HI Normal Man,
No I don't work for Cotic, but I do sell them, so most would say I got a invested interest etc.
BUT I have/ridden Cotic's some new(at full RRP) some 2nd hand and also knowing Kate and Ian Potter at AQR who do a lot of testing for Cotic, before Starting FTR & selling them, so it is a product I really believe in!
I am 5'11, I have riding the medium 29" before and didn't get on with the size as I like a longish TT. I found stand over is fine on large.
The Med Solaris, XT Fox forks, Halo wheels (no pedals)26.70lb (12.11kg)
Large Solaris Xt, X fusion Slide forks, Acrh wheels (no Pedals) 27.86lb 12.60KG
If you can get yourself to Wiltshire this week before end of Sunday I still have the medium and Large Solaris that can be tested as well and the new Soul 27.5.
The Solaris have to be back next week as Cotic are doing some sort of event on the 7th of June.
