Re: That's a lot of bike for the money

Looks like a great spec bike for the price.

Might need to try get a seat on one and see frame size and geometry as was looking for a new bike.

If only they did a full frame bag for it but fingers crossed it’s coming soon.

Re: What Suspension Bikes Are You Bikepacking On

Got a cotic rocket which I sometimes use depending on where I’m going and the distance involved.

Steel frame so not the lightest and 160mm travel doesn’t have the greatest pedalling efficiency but it’s brilliant when the trail points down hill.
