This has to be one of the product vid's we've seen in a long time.

Personally I reckon hardtails rule, regardless of wheel size.

Here though is what Cotic have to say about their latest 29'er...

Do rock gardens get you down? Do you hide away from the more exciting things in life? 

Well, we've found a cure....

The Cotic Solaris was designed to take the best of our legendary Soul trail hardtail and bring all that to the 29" wheel format.

- 44mm standard head tube designed with external bottom cup for taper steerer compatiblity and zero stack top cup for minimal stack height. 

- 31.6mm seatpost size is dropper seatpost compatible and the frame has hose clips for the remote under the top tube.
