Co-Motion Americano

2008



Description 

When it's time to discover the joy of seeing the world first hand and at your own pace, you'll need a bicycle that won't let you down no matter where you are. Alone against the elements, you can depend on our first-rate design and construction to keep you confident and in control

The Co-Motion Americano has established the standard for what a touring bike should be, an entirely new breed of bicycle that handles self-supported, transcontinental touring without even breaking a sweat. We've borrowed and developed ideas from our unsurpassed tandem designs to increase touring load capacity and provide a level of rugged reliability unmatched by any other bicycle.

For complete immunity from wheel failures, the Americano uses a dishless, symmetrically laced rear wheel with a 145mm axle. Our exclusively designed tandem-sized chainstays are long enough to provide huge clearance for carrying large panniers, yet stiff enough that your Americano will beg for more hills to climb. The heat-treated tandem-sized frame tubes are stout enough to cross any continent.

Real touring geometry is vital for the success of your voyage, and we've mind-melded into the Americano the sure, steady disposition of a pack mule. To help you take in the view without strain, the Americano manages to be relaxed and upright. Our exclusive, hand-built fork keeps your gear rock solid even on the steepest mountain descents. There's plenty of room for fat touring tires, fender mounts, and all the braze-on fittings you need.

No other touring bike is as rugged, stable or well equipped for your adventures.
