- Cotic Bfe: Anyone know the year or what version?
Yep, 44mm headtube but no dropper at present. Always meant to fit one but couldn’t decide on which one. Unfortunately road bikes have taken over and the BFe doesn’t get out much. I assumed biking on the road was safer but I had my worst off riding to work in Feb for which I gained stitches, chipped tooth and another scar, hey ho.Posted 2 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
I’m pretty certain that’s a Mk3.
Mk1 was 853 with huge stays, Mk2 was mostly 631, Mk3 was mostly Fm (heat-treated 4130 – basically 631 for less money). Mk4 has updated geometry (more like the 27.5 version). I think the Mk3 was the first with a 44mm head tube and removal mech hanger.Posted 2 years agokayla1Member
I’ve drilled/slotted my mk2 for a stealth dropper and haven’t died yet- I did a DH on it last weekend too. There’s a good thread on here where some brave
loonpioneer drilled a (new?) frame and posted up a mini how-to.
edit- gratuitous BFe pic where you can just see the slot on the lower left front of the seat tube for the dropper cable-
BFes rock.Posted 2 years ago
