The Speedster is Co-Motion's classic road tandem. Made by hand and painted in Eugene, Oregon.
The Speedster begins with robust Reynolds 631 custom-butted and heat-treated steel tubing, ensuring the frame's torsional strength for fast cornering and touring with heavy loads. A 44mm Chris King Inset headset and a tandem-specific Taper Gauge fork add a precise feel to the Speedster's handling. A full compliment of braze-ons for racks, fenders and bottle mounts add versatility for touring, day trips and centuries.
The Speedster's components read like a wish-list: Shimano's Ultegra dual-control shifters and front derailleur paired with a Shimano XT mountain bike rear derailleur for smooth operation and quick gear changes. The 11-32T Shimano XT rear cassette and FSA 52/39/30T Gossamer triple crankset boasts a massive gearing range for steep ascents with heavy touring loads. Descending shouldn't be scary, either. Co-Motion has spec'd TRP's Spyre disc brakes with huge 203mm stainless steel rotors, making stopping predictable in wet or dry conditions. Riders know that wheels take a pounding on tandems, but Co-Motion replied with deep-section alloy 700c Velocity Dyad rims hand-built to DT Swiss 540 hubs. 35mm Vittoria Randonneur Pro tires add confident grip. FSA also supplies the captain's bar and stem, while Co-Motion adds the stoker's base-style handlebar and adjustable stem. Selle Italia's saddles provide a comfy perch for long miles.
