    Cotic Rocket 2012 by Alex Leigh, on Flickr

    Rev was a bit flexy with a straight steerer. Replaced by an x-fusion Slant which has been brilliant. Last properly ridden in the Alps where it was superb. It’s a properly sorted ‘poppy’ bike that doesn’t ride like a 6 inch bike until you need it to.

    It also proved to me that there are limits I’ll never get close to reaching. Hence considering it moving on.

    Never you mind, just you concentrate on arguing about wheel sizes and BB heights. 😆

    I love the look of that thing. There’s nothing wrong with my 5 Spot at all but the only 2 bikes. That give me the urge to change are the Rocket or the Transition Bandit, both as much on looks as anything else….

    It also proved to me that I’m a serial bike swapper and need my next fix there are limits I’ll never get close to reaching. Hence considering it moving on.

    Fixed that for you etc etc 😀

    Mattbee-don’t mean to be smug or owt but I have a Rocket and a Bandit albeit the latter is a 29er
    Both fantastic bikes and have some cross over in the type of rides I take them on.
    Buy either and you won’t be disappointed. Didn’t ride the Rocket much when I bought the Bandit and even considered splitting and selling but then decided to take it to Spain in September so thought I would get used to it again. 4 rides on I remember why I thought it so good in the first place.
    It’s a large orange with Hope/Flow wheels, 970 XTR kit, reverb and Fox 32 DRCV 150 mm forks (in black as it happens and I think it looks nice).
    Considering some Fox 34 or new Pikes but not sure I really need them-that’s never stopped me before though Ha Ha

    Would love a Rocket but can’t see myself being able to afford one any time soon! Seems like a perfect do everything uk bike.

    I’m waiting for the Soulified Rocket, bit lighter, bit less travel.

    I probably won’t be able to afford one but I live in hope.

    I think they will always be a niche frame and maybe Cotic have overpriced what is essentially a good bike. That’s a shame really.

    Overpriced in comparison to which other frames?.

    Soul. It’s perfect

    That makes sense. Compare it to a hardtail, well done you.

    I really like the look of the Rocket, hope it comes out with bigger wheels at some point

    Am waiting for the 650b version to arrive.

    (Lights touch paper and retires).

    Actually, I am though.

    A few months so far but I’m not expecting it to be over soon.

    I’m leaning towards a black rocket now rather than orange, as I want to get a new set of pike’s on there and the 150mm travel solo air is only available in black lower (tubes are black coated on all versions), and I just don’t see it going well with an orange (and white) frame.
    They have been on order for a long time though… :/

    As for 650b, if they did make one would it still be able to retain the character that has made the 26″ rocket a hit with people..?

    I have one. I love it.

    And given the other bike I was considering was a Nicolai it was even cheap in comparison 🙂

    Given the few tweets I’ve seen regarding 650B from Cy I think it’s safe to categorise a 650B version as on the back-burner.

    Premier Icon mattjg

    I think the black looks nicer Gaz. Orange is for Souls.

    I’m only teasing re 650b, I’d likely buy one if there was but I have no expectation.

    Would it be a hit ? … of course

    No more black Rockets. Next batch will be Orange and Green IIRC.

    I rode one last year, a huge amount of fun and rides a lot lighter than it really is

    Only thing stopping me getting is the fact that I can’t afford one 🙁

    Mine has gone ‘home’. I think Olly will be riding it the way it was meant to be ridden 🙂

    Hoping to get one of these when they are available in 5-6 weeks, does anyone know about the shock choices?, will the new Float X be an option?

    Hell no, but it would bring the trail alive
