Travel By Bike Thursday - CO-MOTION PANGEA ROHLOFF

For those that have been in the shop you have probably seen some Co-Motion tandems bike on display from time to time.  Co-Motion makes a great bike and even though they are not on of the big boys, if you are looking for a solid Commuter/Touring bike you can't go wrong giving them a glance.  Today we are going to highlight the Pangea Rohloff which is an Internal Gear Hub belt driven bike that will carry you many miles over many different roads - if you chose to follow that path!

Let's see what Co-Motion has to say about their Pangea model:

An outstandingly rugged, 26” wheeled touring bike that is perfect for our shrinking world. The Pangea has all the features you need for touring in the most challenging of environments. Far from a mountain bike with a drop bar, the Pangea is designed with the stable, responsive touring geometry that has made Co-Motion an industry leader.
Super-duty, extra-large diameter Reynolds 725 Steel tubing and rock-steady hand-built touring fork
Long chain-stays, wide tire clearance and 135mm rear axle
Room for fat tires and fenders, plus fittings for three bottles, front and rear racks, and the toughness you need for your global touring expedition
Larger head tube with internal Chris King Inset headset
