Item: Cotic Solaris Medium Frame - steel is real and all that.
Location: Canberra
Item Condition: Few scratches but pretty good overall. Some paint worn away inside chain stays and a few scrapes elsewhere I've tried to highlight. General chips from stones and transport.
Reason for selling: N-1. Hoping to regret selling it so I build something better
Price and price conditions: $350 pp
Extra Info: This is one of the original duck egg blue Solaris frames. Can be built up with 100-120mm forks for your XC and trail duties, or rigid forks for a gravel grinder / bike packing rig.
Comes with a Hope headset (takes tapered fork, but can easily swap bottom cup for straight), spare hanger and neoprene chainstay protector. 31.6 seatpost. Rear is 135mm QR, but plenty stiff in a steel frame.

This is pretty much sold. It fell through a couple times and then I've been smashed with work but do have a buyer lined up now and a couple of other guys have messaged me... Bit of a process but will let those know who PM'd if anything changes.

Frame has been sold. Wheels are still available, but might list them again separately with some other parts off this bike.
