Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun.

I’d been toying with dipping my toe into the world of full-suspension bikes again, things have progressed a long way since I bought my Craftworks back in 2003. After a few weeks pondering I settled on a Cotic Hemlock, and after a week long wait a new frame arrived today. It’s effectively a replacement for my little-used On-One 456, so most of the bits were transferred straight across.

As built, it comes in just under 31lbs.

Cotic Hemlock frame with short rockers.
RockShox Revelation forks
Hope XC/Mavic F519 wheels with 2.35" Bontrager Jones ACX tyres.
Shimano SLX mechs, SRAM Attack shifters, Hone chainset.
Avid Elixir R brakes
Thomson, Easton, and Charge finishing kit.

Future plans:
It’ll probably get new bars and a slightly shorter stem tomorrow, then at some point in the future some new wheels, probably Hope Hoops, and some longer bolt-through forks to beef up the front end.
