If your cycling objectives include all or any of the following; sporty fitness riding, club rides, centuries, day trips, light touring, commuting or getting groceries and might include transporting your bike to the start of the ride this could be a bike for you. I bought the bike new in the Spring of '09 and put about 900 miles on it.
2008 Co-Motion Nor'Wester Co-Pilot
57cm frame size in Reynolds 853 Tubing
Alpha Q CF-25 Carbon Fork
Chris King Headset
Shimano Ultegra Drive Train with Road Triple Crank and 10 speed cassette
Shimano Long-reach Side Pull Brakes
Reynolds Hubs and Rims
Alpha Q Carbon Seatpost
Selle An-Atomica Saddle (ultimate in comfort)
Mustache Handlebars with DuraAce Brake Levers and DuraAce Bar End Shifters
Mustache bars are very comfortable and offer a variety of hand positions. If you're used to drop bars or upright "hybrid" bars and have never tried Mustache bars you could be pleasantly surprised by how comfortable these bars are.
The Co-Pilot feature of this bike is the S&S Couplers installed in the frame which in conjunction with cable quick-disconnects allow the bike to be separated into two halves for easy packing and transport. This makes the bike very easy to transport in most any car without an external rack. Co-Motion also sells a packing case for the bike that conforms to airline checked baggage size limitations meaning you can fly with the bike and not pay oversize luggage fees. The special tool for the S&S Couplers us included. The cable quick disconnects can be made and un-made by hand (or with a 10mm open end wrench).
The bike is beautifully finished in red with white panels and includes a matching red Blackburn frame pump, black Planet Bike fenders and Continental Grand Prix 700 X 23C Tires.
This bike was built by hand in Oregon, USA. The ride is light and lively yet more supple on rough ground than aluminum and more rugged and durable than carbon fiber. Shifting with DuraAce and Ultegra components is smooth and positive. This bike is a great combination of quality construction, top shelf components and pleasing aesthetics. If you're a cycling enthusiast with a goal of lifelong appreciation of a great bike with limitless practical uses, this is an excellent choice.
