Longshot SolarisMAX – when?
Ooh sarcasm! Always funny when someone does that and gets the answer wrong! 😂
So, as helpfully pointed out, the Cotic website says there’s news on a restock due imminently, but nowhere does it say on the website if it’s goung to be a restock of the new-last-year SolarisMax in different colours or a new model with longshot geo.
Both make sense for different reasons…
Given how quickly the subscribers’ email usually ends up on here, congratulations to Cotic for keeping this one so well under wraps!Posted 3 months agoriddochSubscriber
On cotics website:
NEW VERSION DUE LATE MAY 2018.
Given that the website specifically says new version rather than more stock but I suppose that might just be a colour change. I was at the Cotic stand at the London bike show and I think Cy said it was new geometry inline with the other models, he was talking to someone else whilst I was looking at the escapade so wasn’t paying that much attention.Posted 3 months ago
Nah, website should go live end of the week. Sorry if I’ve created a false expectation.
Cotic usually get a couple frames airfreighted in for the website photos, so a couple weeks after that (or late May as per the website 🤣).
it will be the longshot geo. Cy’s on record on a thread here somewhere confirming that already.
i don’t know enough about the actual geo, just a previous version large with a 60mm stem is a little shorter than the new with a 35. I believe the HA to be the same as the new FlareMAX ie 66 deg (@120mm).
I’m waiting for the website to update myself…Posted 3 months ago
Mines a medium MK1. I went short stem from the start (for then) with 55mm and 740mm bars. 100mm SID. Always tried to toe the line between heavy and fragile with rims and tyres, settled on wtb kom.
Got a few rides in with a works 2° slackset and I like it. The steering somehow feels nice and light as well as calmer, although I have noticed a hint of side to side flop at times.Posted 3 months agoRikMember
Cable routing has so far stopped me buying a Bfe / Soul… not bought anything else though, so I’m maybe telling myself I can live with it
Thats the funnest thing i’ve heard all week…….
So its might be the best riding bike you potential may of ever had and your not buying it because of a functional loop of cable? First world problems and all, i all always thought mountain bikes were designed to be ridden and get a muddy.Posted 3 months ago
