Cotic Jeht Gold GX kit
Customisation is simple, with Cotic providing a selection of elements that may be upgraded or swapped. You may also deliver Cotic your very own gear, from your favourite seat to a complete suite of components, for the group to construct your bicycle with.
My test bicycle had a few improvements, including SRAM G2 RSC brake system (that have been disappointingly underpowered, and so I’d recommend sticking with all the standard Shimano XT four-pots), Cane Creek’s extremely adjustable DB Kitsuma atmosphere surprise and Maxxis tyres.
In addition possessed a RockShox Pike Ultimate fork, which can be a no-cost swap from the Cane Creek Helm. While we’d favour a burlier RockShox Lyrik or Fox 36, the Pike is unquestionably much easier to put up compared to Helm.
Cotic Jeht Gold GX trip impressions
We measured the Jeht’s effective seat-tube angle at 74.4 levels inside my pedalling height (because of the seat 830mm from the base bracket). That managed to make it the slackest we had on test, although just with a little margin.
Include that to your suspension system, which does not have anti-squat and thus bobs and wallows significantly more than most under power, together with outcome is a lazy feel in the climbs, even if compared to the thicker Starling Murmur.
The front end feels a little far away because the seated position is too rearward, making it difficult to keep the front wheel properly weighted on steep climbs without straining in tight turns.
