Cotic Launches SolarisMAX Steel 29er Hardtail
One of our main fork suppliers is X Fusion who use 46mm offset which is what was used throughout the develop process. We have tried 51mm and 42mm on there too. 42mm I honestly can't tell much of a difference to 46mm. 51mm is definitely a little lighter steering, but the angles aren't crazy slack on this bike so you don't get that 'flop' that the big offset forks can get on enduro bikes so 51mm will still work fine if that's what you have.

I have given this some thought, as it's similar to how MX bikes are setup if you think about it. Haven't had a chance to actually run it, but I think it could have some merit.

Interesting feedback chaps. Thank you. So swap-in frame ends rather than dedicated SS seems to be the go to option for a lot of you. Good to know. Cheers.

8 Bikes from the Howard Street Dual
They are stock Metrics with black stanchions. Not sure they ever made production. Richard is our Marketing guy and he got these from the X Fusion USA office a year or so back before it closed.

New Cotic FlareMAX with Updated Geometry
@jollyXroger: The effective seat angle is 74. We tried the steeper seat angle thing and none of us liked it. Put too much pressure on the wrists and shortened the bikes too much despite their reach. Made them feel 'teetery'. We don't have super short rear ends on our bikes to keep the weight balanced between the wheels, which means you don't need a super steep seat angle to keep your weight where it needs to be on the bike. I run my saddle about middle of the rails to get me in a nice position the XL, but if you prefer a more forward seating position then you could push the saddle right forwards. 20mm on the rails is around 1 deg on the seat angle. However, if you simply prefer steep seat angles that's your preference. As I said, it's not ours, but then if we all like the same thing it would be pretty boring, eh?

Max width is 29 x 2.5" or 27.5 x 3.0", although on Plus we're bigger fans of the 27.5 x 2.8".
