Yum Yum! now try it without gears and slap some rigid forks on it and then it will really fly!

Really like that...a modern take on the classic hardtail
I've got a Charge Duster and was thinking of switching to a Cotic due to them being long in the top tube (Charge is tiny) What does it ride like and do they take a 100mm fork?
They do ride very well indeed and well worth the extra ££. I have run one with a 100-140 Talas RLC (which I ran at 120mm plus sag) and now have a 100mm (440) Pace RC31 fork on mine which have transformed it into a mad little terrier of a bike- razor sharp up front now and very much like a modern Yo Eddy (but with better brakes
I wouldn't say they are particularly long in the top tube- mine is a medium and I use a layback Thompson post (I'm 5' 10"ish) and a short 70mm hope stem which gives it great balance- a longer stem makes them a little lazier and puts too much wieght over the front.
if its a long top tube you need try a Inbred 456. Gazz loves his but i thought mine was poop.
