- FS: Cotic BFe Full Bike (853 version/Hope/Mavic/Pikes/XT Groupset)
I am selling my Cotic BFe that I have built and owned since new – for no other reason than after 5 years I fancied a change! It is a great bike that can do pretty much anything, and do it very well. Over the years, this bike has been used for local trails, night rides, snow rides, trail centers, longer epic trails, XC races, 6 hour endurance races, 24 hour races, multi-day self supported bike packing trips and even a trip to the Alps (I was gentle with it, promise!). It has never seen any big crashes, no huge jumps/drops and it is 100% straight and dent free. Obviously, a 5 year old mountain bike will have some signs of wear. There are various scratches to the frame and components and while everything is in good working order at present, it isn’t a brand new bike so expect some wear and tear. I’ll detail as much as possible below.
