A quick spin on the bike is one of the best ways to unwind after a day in work.

It’s been 8 weeks since I was on a bike & it’s probably going to be another 6 weeks until I’m allowed to ride.

@jakd1995 @r3dfive 2.25 Rangers tubeless (fast/light variety), seem to roll well even if they aren't the grippiest. Better bet than 2.6 Butchers!

@r3dfive Make some great tyres don’t they. Wanted to try some Byways but I think they only do them in 650 so won’t fit mine. Need another set of wheels 🙄

@avoiding_karoshi @gnaskor have to say I’m an oval convert. Consistently spinning at a higher cadence on the climbs.

Glyncorrwg, Neath Port Talbot, United Kingdom
My pal Jeff Utterback — one of the unquestionable originals of the early SoCal BMX scene, welder extraordinaire, early member of WASP(!), drag racer, and all-around excellent human being — has, along with his wife Anna, started a senior animal rescue called Ma’s Top o’ the World. To raise funds, he’s been reissuing shirts and decals from his days as the “J” in GJS. 
Bicycle motocross nerds of a certain age know how well-made the old GJS stuff was, and during the BMX boom of the ‘80s, a who’s who of the sport rode GJS bikes at one time or another. My bio link is currently occupied by something else, but have a look at gjsbmx (at) bigcartel dot com if you’re an aging BMX kid like me (or a young one with respect for the sport’s history) and want to contribute to a great cause. 
I picked up a t-shirt and some decals, one of which has landed in a place of pride on my @coticbikes SolarisMAX full-rigid 29er, which is as close a thing to a gigantic BMX bike as I’ve ever ridden.

Since we last saw this #coticSolarisMAX it has been pedalled over 700 miles along the Oregon Timber Trail, been ridden, pushed and carried up Nepalese & Tibetan peaks and spent many nights out under the stars. If bikes could talk they'd tell some stories; luckily we have Dom from @trashfreetrails to do that for us. We're working closely with @trashfreetrails in 2019 and will let you know how you can help to make a real difference. For now it's easy - take your trash home with you and pickup some more you see on the way. We can all manage that right? #trashfreetrails #trashmob #trashfreetrailclean #plasticfreeriders #unsustainablyhighstoke

Since we last saw this #coticsolarismax it has been pedalled over 700 miles along the Oregon Timber Trail, been ridden, pushed and carried up Nepalese & Tibetan peaks and spent many nights out under the stars. If bikes could talk they'd tell some sto

@donmitchell10 Totally support the principle, but always a little irked by the easy adoption of Americanisms - 'trash' - that's just rubbish. If it's the alliterative effect you want, how about #flayallflytippers

@mattsbikeworkshop If you could stay low it was amazing but on my local trails that are tight and twisty I just could stay behind the bars easily so after a couple of spills having tried an array of stems, bars I sold it to a guy around 5’10” that fits it like a glove!

@hazsheppard Thanks for the reply @mattsbikeworkshop! Good to know someone else's thoughts on it, 6ft myself...may have to test ride a few different bikes, thanks again! 🙌

Beautiful light up in the trees at Dalby this afternoon. Fully getting to grips with the new @coticbikes Solaris Max now. The harder you push it the smoother it rides. #dalbyforest #cotic #coticsolaris #coticsolarismax

@mattsbikeworkshop @juansevo I felt I was on the Cotic and not in it. I’m 6ft. Cotic is very stable and fast but only worked for me if I could get really low on it but my local trails don’t allow much of that so I ended up with too much weight up front as if it was to short! The pace by contrast, also a large I run with a 70mm stem, 130mm forks and it is awesome. Totally in it. Completely different machine. On paper very similar bikes but very very different.

@mattsbikeworkshop @juansevo the Pace is a single speed but I’m going to buy an XL to build with gears and a 45mm stem.

It was so wet today this is the only photo I got. Enjoying the new Cotic Solaris Max in the Lakes today.

@mattsbikeworkshop Really direct steering, incredibly stable, super planted, looking forward to getting out for longer and with a couple of position tweaks it’s going to be epic 👍 great work #coticbikes

Finally built up and oh boy am I looking forward to taking this out. I can even hear the trails calling. #coticsolarismax #coticbikes #praxisworks #huntbikewheels #maxxistyres #protharsis #newbikeday #shimanoxt #mattsbikeworkshop

@mattsbikeworkshop @juansevo it’s definitely a bright red.

@juansevo @mattsbikeworkshop what size is this one?

@beard.no1 Wich model is this ? Is it the solaris.

A Christmas Cotic.
.
This spring I began contacting companies that I admired to see if they might support me for my adventure.
.
I took care to create a proposal that both did my trip justice and showed respect to the hardworking people who I was essentially asking for free stuff from. However, each time I pressed ‘send’, I still felt super cheeky but the long and the short of it was I needed help.
.
The biggest ‘hit and hope’ email of all was the one I sent to Rich at Cotic. I could sense the reluctance with which he gave me his email address but still he encouraged me, a total stranger, to send him more work!
.
So, when my phone rang 60 minutes later (in the hairdressers!) the last voice I expected to hear was that of a northerner called Rich...
.
Fast forward 6 months and I’m sat in this Cornish kitchen, reflecting on an adventure that saw me ride over 2000km and climb almost 200,000ft in Oregon, Washington, Tibet and Nepal on a Cotic Solaris Max that they kindly gave to me.
.
This bike is now my most treasured possession, a companion almost. Together we bombed 4500m scree slopes, rattled through lava fields with a cracked rib, chased a Nepali Rasta through Kathmandu, kept our eyes peeled for Cougars, rode (anti-clockwise) around a Tibetan monastery and so much more.
.
Now, I’m neither skilled nor unbiased enough to offer a review of the technical specs or performance of the Solaris Max, but I do feel pretty well qualified to talk about what it has done for me.
.
I set off on this adventure to try and tackle my own mental health issues and also to raise money for the men’s mental health charity the Campaign Against Living Miserably (@CALMzone) and I’m so happy to say that I feel well and that we have, so far, raised £1950.
.
“So far” is the perfect term because neither of the tasks I set myself will ever be complete. What is certain is that I’ll be continuing the journey on my (weathered) Cotic and with the support and friendship of Rich, Cy and the rest of the team at @coticbikes.
.
Merry Christmas guys

@lewiscraik I’ve been considering a @coticbikes as my next hardtail, so it is great to hear that they are good guys as well as building good bikes!

@miffsmith79 @hutchyson this looks ace 👍🏼

@loisfife That Solaris Max frame in red is beautiful. Well worth your protection @invisiframe.

Not just for giants, we've got a couple of green #coticsolarismax frames left in small size. You'll be amazed how nimble 29s can be with the right geometry and standover height. Longshot puts you in control and coupled with new @wildernesstrailbikes gen2 tyres, you'll be unstoppable. Reduced to £550. Last few available in this colour.

@coticbikes @empteeboi It is perfect for a ride that height.

@warrickschmidt Would a size medium suit someone 5'8?
