Co-Motion Co-Pilot - Price Reduced
Date: July 30 Ad ID: JCRCC
Ideal for traveling, this Co-Pilot tandem is fitted with stainless steel S&S Couplings and separates into three equally-sized sections. This design simplifies disassembly and reassembly for shipping. Neither the crankset nor the fork need be removed for packing. The entire bike including wheels, helmets, shoes and whatever else you care to fit in the open spaces, fits into two Cordura nylon cases, included, that check in as regular airline luggage.
We took delivery of this tandem in early 2000 and rode it often for eleven years. The large-medium frame works for me at 6'2" and my stoker at 5'5". The stoker cockpit can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of heights.
This bike was hand built by the best tandem frame builder in the country, Co-Motion Cycles Inc, Eugene OR. Known for durability and reliability, Co-Motion tandems are designed with ride and steering considerations that are the particular characteristics of a tandem bicycle.
The components are high-end:
- Reynolds 525/725 triple butted tandem tubing frame
- Taper-gauge Cro-Moly fork with Co-Motion designed steerer
- Wheelsmith-built 40-spoke wheels with Phil Wood hubs
- Raceface 170 mm crankset and chainrings
- Shimano Deore XT rear deraileur
- 27 gears (3 x 9)
- Avid cantilever brakes with supplemental Arai drum brake
- 44 cm captain's handlebars with a Bontrager 100 mm stem
- Chris King headset
- The paint color, Las Vegas Gold #5242, can be matched for touch-up.
Not included: Bicycles are typically sold without pedals. If you want, I can include pedals for you at an additional cost. You may have a preference for your own saddles. If you wish, I can include a pair that are worn but serviceable. Tires and tubes need to be replaced. I can install new tires and tubes for you at an additional cost.
Brakes note: These days tandems are fitted with disc brakes. I was told at the time of purchase that the frame spacing can accommodate disc brakes. The currently installed drum brake when set provides a steady drag and relieves the captain from the hand-tiring task of braking on descents.
The bike is located in Palo Alto, CA. I will cooperate with shipping arranged by and paid by the buyer.
