Cotic Rocket Owners.. Quick QandA
Just ordered my Rocket frame.. no fanboi reason or anything just fitted the bill nicely and its pretty.
Can anyone explain to me how the combined rear pivot/brake mount works?
in this image it shows a small nut holding the seat stay pivot together, is this removed and a brake adapter put in its place to hold it all together? does that adapater fit flush to the frame? or are there spacers between frame and brake adpater?

Get them to clean out the threads on the bottom bracket too. This was also a task I passed on as feeling too fragile, I was scared I was going to strip the threads being hamfisted… There was definitely paint residue.
Why not get Cotic to fit the headset (either hope or nukeproof)?Posted 5 years ago
I didn’t. I actually built in the shop (now sadly closed).
Got the grease monkey to do it for me. And an excellent job he did too!
Just get the shop to do it same time as the headset (has the b/b been faced?). You may not have the same problem but the cups were sticking on the way in and I didn’t want to force them.
My Solaris was the same, shop ran a thread cutter through it just to clear any excess paint. Just as well as it was a bit tight on that one too!Posted 5 years ago
PTR: Yeah, that’s what I thought
I’d recommend not drinking two bottles of wine the night before you start it though…
You need to think about cable routing, etc. nothing major, just think it through first. When I did mine it was the first one out of Cotic and there were no pictures other than official ones (and I had some of the demo bike). Worked out all right in the end!

There should be an owners manual but it doesn’t give any help re. cable routing. I have a PDF copy if you want?
The gear cable route under the shock (I’ve zip tied mine just to keep them neat). You should be able to get the jist of things for the rest of the photos on my Flickr site. Or indeed others. Try searching for cotic… If not I could take some more (specific) photos if necessary.Posted 5 years ago
