After buying the yeti :- http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 94&start=0
I had all but stopped riding the Cotic so it was sold to a friend at the end of the summer last. He's no longer much of a cyclist and was just using it to commute to work. I think the only off-roading it saw was the boxing day bike ride that ededwards and winky84 enjoyed too. He hadn't payed for it in full, to be honest he hadn't made much of a dent in the payments. So when he lost his rag the other day after crashing it and breaking a few spokes he declared he didn't want it any more.
To be honest, I kind if regretted selling it as it makes such a good winter bike, the clearances are amazing and the standover is so much better than a 29er.
Spent the afternoon fixing various ills, two spokes in the rear wheel, one in the front. New gear cable after straightening the rear dropout. Could do with a new rear mech but it'll do for now. He has broken the pushloc lever, but I can live without that for a while.
Just ridden the thing the long way home to check the position of the saddle, and I have to say I'm in love again.
No pics, but I promise to take some tomorrow. Medium size ride planned for first thing in the morning.
Must update my sig......
