This Co-Motion Pangea 26"-wheeled touring bike with S&S travel couplers is perfect for a shorter person looking for a high quality touring and travel bike. Standover height is ~28 inches. The seat tube measures ~45cm, and with the sloping top tube the frame has a good bit of size flexibility (Co-Motion calls this a 48cm in their frame specs on their website). It should comfortably fit someone between 4'9" and 5'3" or thereabouts.

Co-Motion is a leader in custom and semi-custom touring bike building and is known for its well-made bikes. Scroll down for the full build list and all measurements. Do a Web search and you'll find a lot of great reviews of the Pangea.

The paint job is a very cool purple to black fade. The bike is used (2009 build date) and shows some scratches on the frame, most of which have been touched up, and it looks fine from five feet away. I tried to catch all the blemishes in the photos. Otherwise it is in great condition.

My wife is the second owner of the bike (bought used from a bike shop). Sorry, an S&S case is NOT included in the sale (you will get the special S&S coupler spanner wrench, though).

Lots of photos (24) on my Craigslist ad at http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/5887010736.html

Co-Motion's description:

"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.
- Super-duty, extra-large diameter Reynolds 725 Steel tubing and rock-steady hand-built touring fork
- Long chain-stays, room for fat tires and fenders, plus fittings for three bottles, front and rear racks, and the toughness you need for your global touring expedition"

FRAME
-Co-Pilot travel option with S&S couplers
-Reynolds 725 steel tubing
-Frame size (measured) 45cm; Co-Motion calls this a "48cm" on their website, probably because the sloping top tube gives a lot of flexibility.

-Seat tube: 45cm center-top, 40.5 center-center
-Virtual top tube: 48 cm (sloping top tube)
-Center seatpost to center handlebars: 58cm (with 110mm stem)

-Seatpost: Kalloy Uno Seraph, 29.8 x 350mm, black

-Misc: alloy QR seatpost binder; DaVinci cable splitters on all cables (except front brake); inline cable adjusters

Selling this ready to tour bike for $1750 firm. (For reference, a current Pangea with couplers would cost around $4,800.)

Located in the Philadelphia, Pa., area. Will consider shipping or meeting a buyer within a 1-hour drive. PayPal accepted for long-distance sale, with seller/buyer splitting the fee.

Although this is a 2009 model, it is very similar to the current model shown on Co-Motion's website at http://co-motion.com/bikes/pangea. The main difference is the new model has disc brakes and is 10-speed instead of 9-speed (although the new model has downgraded the derailleurs to an XT rear and 105 front vs. XTR and XT on this bike). For touring, many prefer V-brakes over discs anyway, and the difference between 9- and 10-speed drivetrains is negligible.
