  • Cotic Bfe 275
  • During one of my many visits to lust after a Solaris/Soul/Bfe I noticed Cotic have snuck a 275 Bfe on to their site for preorder. I know there are quite a few fans of Cotic on here so thought I would share the news as I couldn’t see it mentioned.

    Cotic Bfe 275

    Available in matte green and blue in April

    I would quite like a Black Grape Bfe, not that my riding requires such a solid frame, I just like the colour.

    Cotic aren’t setting the wheel size trends, they follow the market.

    Just because they are updating their range doesn’t me 26″ wheels are redundant.

    The Soul and BFe have always had exactly the same geometry I think? Looks like that’s changed now, with the 275 BFe being slacker than the 275 Soul.

    The 26″ bfe is still for sale, as is the soul.

    I imagine they will be dead if people stop buying them though.

    My Bfe 26 is doing just fine although I suspect new buyers may be more focused on 275 so Cotic are doing the sensible thing

    Well my wife’s just getting a 26″ Soul – better fit for her than the 27.5. If Cotic can’t make the 27.5 geometry work for smaller folk then they’ll keep selling the 26″ frames. Look at the frame sizing on their website: XS, S, M for 26″ frames; S, M, L for 27.5″ frames and M, L XL for 29ers

    There’ll also be a long tail of people buying a 26″ frame and transferring parts over from older bikes.

    Or you could just stick 27.5 wheels in the std BFe … with a 27.5 fork. That will make it slacker ….

    Looks great! I was going to email Cy a while back suggesting they slackened the head angle and increased the BB drop vs the Soul for a 27.5 BFe (because 4X and DJ will still run 26 and they’re the only ones who want to run a sub 120mm fork on a BFe) and then thought he’d certainly have already thought of that. My suspicions were correct!

    What part of “26 ain’t dead” means they can’t make any other wheelsizes?

    Cotic haven’t sold the XL for a couple of years now, I should know as I’m riding a large with about a foot of seat post showing 😳

    Always found it odd that the BFe didnt have slacker angles, its supposed to be the more lairy bike etc…might be on the list now when it comes time to replace my Ragley.
