Early last year Cy from Cotic sent me an email asking if I wanted to help him out with some work to investigate the feasibility of a carbon back end for his Rocket full suspension design. Obviously I jumped at the chance and have been working with him on and off since then. I've been involved in all aspects of this rear end from design through to prototyping. I ended up making a one off carbon swingarm prototype, both for testing and to get a feel for the required layup. The proto has been ridden thoroughly and although various aspect can be improved has proven really successful.
Cy has also been working with Scottish frame builder Shand, looking at the steel front end. One of the prototype steel front ends has been assembled onto my prototype swingarm to give a one off UK made bike. This bike is being displayed at this years Bespoked UKHMBS. Currently this is just a feasibility study, the only person who knows if this will progress further is Cy himself.
