Just moved back to NZ with the Cotic. Got extra bottle cage bosses added to seatstays and the bottom of the downtube. Also got the chainstays crimped, so should comfortably fit a 650x50.
Funds are limited so it's probably going to stay like this for the next wee while. Plans going forward are to replace the current stem, replace tyres with tubeless g-ones and eventually get an sp dynamo and lights.
