Eugene, Oregon-based Co-Motion Cycles is one of our favorite American-made bicycle brands. They’re as nuts as we are about high-quality bikes that do their job, no muss no fuss. This winter, we got to do a pair of ground-up builds of Co-Motion Pangea Rohloff-hub steel touring rigs for a young couple who are looking forward to some North American and European bike tours. They opted for the Co-Pilot upgrade for the Pangeas, so the frames have stainless steel couplers, allowing them to break down small enough to fit into standard airline-checkable luggage—definitely a practical approach to keeping your travel costs down on a bike tour budget.
Each bike includes the Rohloff hub with internal gearing—keeping shifting smooth and low-maintenance, a Schmidt low-drag dynamo front hub that powers the headlight and integrated USB charger, Dajia Euro-style trekking bars, and a Gates CenterTrack carbon belt drive.
We always love when customers have something out-of-the-ordinary in mind, and are willing to take the time to get everything exactly right. Come see us about your next project — whether you’re planning a Florida bike tour, a Jax-to-San Diego Southern tier bike tour, or headed to Spain to start a European bike tour.
|An outstandingly rugged, 26” wheeled touring bike that is perfect for our shrinking world. The Pangea has all the features you need for touring in the most challenging of environments. Far from a mountain bike with a drop bar, the Pangea is designed with the stable, responsive touring geometry that has made Co-Motion an industry leader.
