Hi Guys

For sale is my Cotic Soda "bike". As much as I love it, I hardly ever use it, it doesnt suit my riding style (never did) and I'll use the cash for a Gravel adventure bike that I'll actually use!

(I appreciate I'm completely new here. I am active on BikeRadar if that makes you believe I'm more real (ahem). Obviously I understand if you want to use PayPal payment protection or (ideally) meet up in person etc.)

Price dropped to GBP 500 o.n.o (but see below)

Frame - the "original" Size MEDIUM Cotic Soda Ti
Fork - Rock Shox SID RL Ti fork (15mm Maxle)
Wheelset - Superstar Superleggera hubs on Stans Arch Rims with Sapim CX Ray spokes
Tyres - Schwalbe Racing Ralph/Rocket Ron combo (I have a load of other 26in tyres should you want them) set up tubeless

I have left what parts of the Shimano XT (it was the era just before they introduced clutch mechs) I think are still of sellable quality on the frame if you want them.

If you interested in a split or frame only please let me know. Clearly the value is in the frame so looking for GBP 500 for that. Other bits total 150 i reckon

Story - I upgraded the fork and wheels whilst living in Holland. Unfortunately for this bike, soon after that I bought a modern 29er Race HT (it was holland!) and began to use that pretty much exclusively (I'm not a retrobike kinda guy). The poor cotic has had very little use since then as I left it in the dry warmth of my parents garage and used it a few times a year when I'd come back. As much as I love it (it was my first "proper" MTB I have to be realistic. Ideally I'd put the frame on the wall somewhere but it's a bike and should be ridden by someone who loves it!

I am located in PLYMOUTH or S.E. Cornwall.

Hi. Frames too big for me. But going by your pricing if the frame sells for £500 I will give you £180 for the rest ;-)
