Show and Tell – Cotic BFe
Some photos here to annoy you Flithy:Posted 9 years ago2tyredMember
here’s mine – not the best picture in the world, but the only one i’ve got to hand.
I’ve never ridden a Chameleon, so can’t compare. Doesn’t feel harsh at all to me, quite happy as an all day bike. I love mine, you can attack everything on it and it just feels great fun to ride. Front’s a bit wandery on steep seated climbs, but its a big fork and a short stem i’ve got on it, so no surprise. Didn’t buy it for climbing though!

I got one off here about a month ago. Changed from a stiffee. Had a couple of rides on it. Rode the Brechfa red on it. I can definately say it beat me up less than the stiffee, felt much less ‘abused’ by it, so probably more forgiving than a cham. It is long and climbs well too.
I couldn’t work it out at first how to ride it. But once you work out how to pin the front in is the fastest I’ve ever descended the red run…is a sublime ride! It’s proper long and stable, which I didnt like at first coming from a cove, but when you learn how to work it, it is fast and fun. Also flies pretty good 🙂
All in all I love it and can’t wait to take it to Gethin downhill track. Is the perfect bike for me, climbs, descends, is strong and doesn’t weigh as much as a jump bike.Posted 9 years ago
Whaddya wanna know?
Well I was looking at a hemlock/orange blood but after riding the blood then getting back on my hardtail I thought I might put the full sus idea on hold at least till after I test the hemlock in april. I’ve got a DJ frame (comical max max) but its far to small to be riding anywhere other than the skate park/bmx track so I thought I’d get a BFe and swap most of the bits over, I’ve got pikes that can go back up to 140 travel with the spacer taken out, is anyone running pikes on their BFe’s, whats it like?
Also wondering if Cotic will be building anymore big ones and when they will be landing?Posted 9 years ago2tyredMember
Pretty sure most of the ones i’ve seen on here are running Pikes.
I’ve only seen one in the wild, looked like Manitou shermans but didn’t stop to look closer.
Mine are 2yo marz AM-SL1s, they’re 120-160. Most of the time I’ve got them dialled most of the way out. I don’t get much more scientific about it than that!Posted 9 years agoSwiftacularMember
Cant remember who off here bought mine, but i loved it. Used it for everything for 8 months or so. Very long and stable, too long in fact, which is why i got rid of it. For downhill duties it excels, but i felt for singletrack and climbing (the majority of my riding), my Pace 303 worked better. The BFe was never flickable, struggled to manual it etc. Maybe my fault for getting the Large frame, when i was on the cusp of small sizing. And my jump bike is a lot lighter.Posted 9 years ago
