FS - Co-Motion Americano 57cm S&S Couplers with custom luggage
« on: September 21, 2022, 05:29:10 pm »
Perfect for a world tour or a weekend adventure.
Custom built in Eugene OR.
This bike is comfortable no matter if you are riding with a full touring load or just panniers for a trip to the local market. I’ve toured it extensively in the US and Europe. I am selling because I am more interested in gravel touring/bikepacking and cannot justify keeping this beautiful bicycle hanging in my garage. The original owner (I am the second owner) designed it to be compatible with remote touring when rim brakes are preferred as they are easier to repair/replace. More pics available by request
• Size: 57 – standard geometry
• Metallic gray with black panels (small bottle of touch up paint color-matched by Co-Motion included)
• Frame: Reynolds 725 heat treated double butted Cro-Moly tubing with Co-Pilot (S+S Couplers). The incredible threaded stainless-steel S+S coupler enables your Co-Motion to fit into airline checkable luggage. Includes spanner wrench, cable splitters. *See Note below: I am offering the S+S 26”x26”x12” suitcase and custom frame protection components for separate purchase. I’ve used this luggage for numerous biking adventures in the US and Europe and have never been charged additional fees by the airlines or suffered any damage to the frame and components during shipments.

Nice bike. Maybe I missed it but you might want to list how much you are asking.

Minor point, but is the case 26x26x12" (as listed) or 26x26x10" (meets the 62" airline requirement)?
