Co-Motion Cycles
Co-Motion Logo

Co-Motion Cycles started simply: We built a few for ourselves and our friends, and found ourselves able to rise to the occasion when challenged by new ideas or problems. Not once have we stopped questioning the way things have always been done. While finding better ways to make our bicycles stand apart, we’ve learned more than we ever imagined, from designing new bicycle tubing to the intricacies of CNC machining and maintaining an amazing, and talented workforce.

These past 25 years have taught us the joy of coming to know the people most important to us: Our customers. From global tourists to Paralympic gold medalists to the child starting on the back of her parents’ tandem, and everybody who just wants a beautiful bike to ride; we thank you all so much. Our business has thrived only because you entrusted us to build you a great bike. We promise to you that we will make your next bike right here in Oregon with love, with pride and the care and attention to detail that you have come to expect, as always. We look forward to the next 25 years. It’s going to be a great ride!

Klatch CS3:

If you could choose one bike for your daily rides, weekend adventures, sport touring or gravel and cyclocross races; the Klatch would be on the short list. New for 2016 is our CS3 frame option shown on this Klatch build. The CS3 upgrade utilizes True Temper’s super light, super strong S3 steel tubing with an all-carbon integrated seat tube completing the main triangle. CS3 combines the unmistakable ride of advanced ultralight steel tubing with the amazing performance and weight savings of carbon, with no seat-post. The carbon seat tube extends all the way to the saddle. The saddle is secured with a custom machined aluminum topper, made in-house and integrated with an ENVE saddle clamp.

The Klatch also features an in-house machined and tapered head-tube with matching tapered TRP 100x15mm thru-axle cross fork. Co-Motion machined 142x12mm thru-axle disc dropouts, PF30 bottom bracket shell, plus internal Di2 wiring. The longer chain-stays and more upright geometry provide stability downhill and more comfort on long days. Disc brakes with internal routed housing provide for ultimate stopping power. Mounts for fenders, three bottles, a rear rack and room for 40mm off-road tires. All standard features.

 

Carrera Co-Pilot Tandem:

The Carrera tandem is fast and fun with an outstanding ride quality that you expect from exclusive zonally butted Reynolds 631 steel tubing. Complete with an in-house machined tapered head tube, Co-Motion designed full-carbon disc fork and CNC-machined dropouts.

This bike is ready for your next century ride, gran fondo, tandem rally, or weekend adventure. Shown in a beautiful HOK fade with Sunrise to Tangelo Pearl paint scheme. The Co-Pilot option available on our steel models allows the bike to break down and fit into airline friendly travel cases.
