Co-Motion has been in the tandem business for decades, and the Carrera is one of their best.

Tandems of old were little more than toys or conversation starters. They were heavy, impractical, and generally handled like a wet sponge. Co-Motion has been focused on improving the concept of the road tandem, and offers the Carrera as one of their better performing models in several ways. First, the frame of the Carrera is built with custom-butted tandem-specific Reynolds 631 cro-moly steel tubing. This high-performance cro-moly steel all but eliminates that rubbery (and scary) feel in turns and during hard pedaling. The ride quality is excellent, keeping both captain and stoker comfortable for century rides and multi-week touring. Reynolds 631 tandem tubing is exclusive to Co-Motion, and can be built up with custom geometry for a perfect fit. Mounts for bottle cages, fenders and pannier racks are found throughout the Carrera, adding versatility. The tandem's head tube is a machined piece, and has a Chris King Inset 2 headset installed for incredible durability. An alloy fork won't be found up front. Instead, there's a carbon fiber Co-Motion Carbon T390 Disc fork, bringing lighter weight and very confident handling to the Carrera. Ultimately, all those features are a very positive indication that this tandem is what plenty of riding couples really want in a bicycle built for two. But there's more. Plenty more...

A tandem that is easy to operate allows the captain and stoker to work together seamlessly. They can enjoy the scenery, tackle a step incline, and experience the road ahead without needing to manage the bike's foibles. Shimano's new R8000-series 11-speed Ultegra dual-control levers and derailleurs bring lightning-quick operation and long service life to the Carrera. A Shimano Ultegra 11-34T cassette and alloy Co-Motion 50/34T compact crankset provides a wide gearing range for tackling challenging terrain. The alloy Co-Motion cranksets are connected with a Gates Carbon timing belt that needs no lubrication, and is tensioned with an eccentric bottom bracket found at the captain's position. Lifespan on the Gates timing belt? With proper installation and tensioning, a Gates timing belt for a tandem can last over 10,000 miles. Did we mention the belt is also completely silent?

The Carrera's alloy tandem wheels are handbuilt by Rolf Prima in Eugene, Oregon about 3 miles from Co-Motion's factory. The paired spoke design found on the Rolf Prima wheelset allows for better handling and stability in gusty conditions, as well as better straightline aerodynamics. They're disc-specific wheels, and are wrapped with Continental's 700x25c GatorSkin tires for excellent puncture resistance and long tread life. The Carrera features TRP's cable-operated Spyre disc brakes with massive 203mm rotors, delivering outstanding braking power in all conditions, rain or shine.

Selle Italia supplies the Nekkar and Lady Flow saddles, while an adjustable alloy stoker stem, alloy stoker handlebar, captain's FSA Omega road handlebar and FSA SL-K alloy stem complete this excellent machine. An optional ThudBuster suspension seatpost is installed in the stoker's position for additional comfort. 

Custom paint, custom geometry, S&S couplers (for easy travel and low luggage fees), travel cases, carbon fiber Rolf Prima wheels, and Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting are just a few of the options available from Co-Motion to build your dream tandem. Please call for details.
