  • How do I know what year my Cotic Soul is from?

    I’m a little confused as to the age of my Cotic Soul. It’s not the earliest with the cables on the top tube but the rear mech guides are tubes not cable ties like the one (classic) now.

    Is there anyway of knowing which year (how old it is)?

    Cut it in half and count the rings?

    Does it have an oval top tube? Does it have a replaceable rear mech hanger?

    It doesn’t have a replaceable mech hanger and the top tube is round.

    Not the current Soul, nor the previous then. What colour is it?

    You post a picture on here and cy or someone in the know will tell you.

    The decals can tell you something as well but I wouldn’t know exactly what…

    Yeah I can’t find the pics for some reason and I’m home at the parents now. It has the Cotic with lines not the wrap

    Frame number and give cotic a buzz?

    Check your receipt?

    The cable guides are still tubes, it’s the hose guides that switched to clip-in ones in Autumn 2006 (when the cables/hoses moved from above to below the top tube). So it’s Autumn ’06 – Autumn ’09. BB shell width (68mm is pre Spring ’07) will narrow it down further.

    It’s not a 68mm bb. The cable guides are tubes for sure.

    I only run one spacer on the drive side so 73mm right?

    Also it doesn’t have a replaceable me h hanger

    So it’s ’07-’09.

    Sorry, slight highjack – was the replacable mech hangers introduced in ’09? And since then, has there been two versions (the one now sold as the “classic” (’09-’12), and the current one (’12-onwards))?
