Cotic releases new Bfe hardtail... with 26 inch wheels
Back in 2013 Cotic released 26 AIN'T DEAD, potentially the finest hardtail riding video ever made, and it has stuck with that motto on its latest bike - the updated BFE26.
This is really just a geometry update on the classic Bfe hardtail to bring it in line with the Bfe275 that was released last year - that means a slacker head angle, longer reach and a lower bottom bracket. The cable routing has also been updated so you can now fit a stealth dropper.
Cotic reckons the bike is good for "hard riding", think a 4x/BMX/ general play bike built around a 100mm fork, but it does also say you could fit up to a 160mm fork if you want to hit the trails or even something like Megavalanche.
We reckon this could be a great little hanger for all those leftover 26inch parts that are rapidly becoming obsolete, but Cotic says you can fit it with a 27.5 fork if you need.
The frame costs £350 and is available now, or Cotic can sort you with a full build for around £1,800.
