FS Co-Motion Americano Reduced $1800 + shipping
« on: July 22, 2021, 02:25:12 pm »
1 owner, purchased new in 2008.  It’s been across the country (in 2016) and down the California coast and on several shorter trips as well.  Always well cared-for, kept inside when not being ridden, but normal wear & tear (e.g. the chainrings and rear cogs are probably close to needing replacement, though chain has been replace well within limits). Includes rear rack, fenders (carbon fiber) front hub dynamometer and lights.  Asking $2200 (plus shipping), does not include pedals but includes saddle (Terry Fly Gellissimo Ti cutout) or for +$100, Brooks Swallow Ti.  Photos at
