Montesa Cota 330 owners.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.    Just wondering if any of you still own a Montesa Cota 330 ?  Used to be a few on the forum at one time..  Just doing a couple of wee service jobs on mine as its been stored for a few years !!.

 

Cheers Sandy

That is a purposeful looking bike, and for the first time one that looks good with black rims!!!

I'm curious to know how you find them both also, both look to be cleverly modded .From what I can see the one you mainly ride has the frame rails removed and a good sized alloy bash plate fitted and the 'Puma' one has a completely different exhaust system from standard.

They both look awesome, I'm envious.

Puma bike uses an exhaust from a 335, common mod in Spain

Hi Woody, do you still have your 330 ?

Hi Sandy, no, sold it some time ago and it went to Denmark. I gave it a total refurb along with a Cota 350 at the same time. Rode both a few times and out of the two I preferred the 350,

Don't get me wrong, I love the look of Montesa's last TwinShock and wish I had one, but why did they go back to a full cradle frame? The 349/4 and 350 frames with alloy bash plates and no under frame rails look stronger and possibly a better proposition for Twin Shock Trials.
