The Mezzaluna Mixte pictured is finished with two-tone wet paint with painted-on decals and graphics. Lug work is highlighted with a contrasting color and the entire bicycle is covered in a pearl clear coat.

Mezzaluna is Italian for crescent moon, a name reflecting the crescent curve of the two sloping top tubes. The Mezzaluna Mixte is designed for comfort, durability, functionality, and style Designed for a comfortable upright riding posture with a step-through geometry for easy mounting and dismounting.

A simple, elegant alternative to adaptive hardware defines the Co-Motion PeriScope tandems. The quick-release dual telescoping seat mast system makes fitting everyone simple and easy. The PeriScope design allows the bike to grow with your children until they’re at least as tall as you are. Simple no-tool adjustments mean that Mom or Dad can ride with the kids within seconds. All PeriScope models feature larger, specially designed  zonally-butted cro-moly tubing to enhance stability, no matter who you’re riding with and to make it fun riding with anyone.

This PeriScope Torpedo model features the superb performance and component selection of our popular Speedster tandem and 700c wheels.  With hand-built DT Swiss and Velocity Dyad wheels, laced here in our factory. Co-motion designed and machined head-tube, bottom bracket shells, self-locking eccentrics, drop-outs, unicrown fork, PeriScope seat masts and collars; all made in-house. Components include Shimano Ultegra kit, Avid BB7 disc brakes, Selle Italia saddles, Continental Gatorskin tires, Co-Motion stoker stem, FSA Gossamer cranks and cockpit.  Like all our steel tandems, the Torpedo has front and rear rack mounts, full fender eyelets and four water bottle mounts. Well equipped for your next family vacation.

With its ultra-rugged frame, fork and big 29” wheels, the Java is equipped to take on extremes. Getting away from vehicle traffic has never been easier or more fun. The Java’s stout frame and specially-built fork are designed to get you to your most exotic destination grinning widely. Designed with custom super sized zonally-butted cromoly tubing and in-house made drop-outs. With plenty of clearance for large tires and fenders, it can also be equipped with 700c tires for road touring when riding “civilized” and disc brakes make it easy. Of course, front and rear rack mounts, full fender eyelets and four water bottle mounts are standard on the Java.

This special NAHBS edition of the Java model will be built around the Rohloff Speedhub 14-speed internally geared hub, dual Co-Motion self-locking eccentrics and Gates CenterTrack timing belt and drive belt for low maintenance and reliability. We decided to add polished stainless steel S&S couplers to compliment the 17-4 stainless Rohloff-specific dropouts to make for the ultimate touring tandem. Final touches will include a new Co-Motion 14-speed machined drop-bar shifter, Son Schmidt dynamo front hub, Schmidt Edelux headlight and USB powered stem top-cap. Everything you need for self-contained adventures off the grid.

Performance-hungry athletes seek out tight, accurate handling, proven components and a company they can believe in. Co-Motion Cycles builds every custom Macchiato specifically for each captain and stoker, and it delivers on all accounts. Using proprietary ACMUltra7 zonally-butted 7005 aluminum tandem tubing, specifically engineered for the Macchiato. At 24.8 lbs with the optional Ultegra Di2 package, the Macchiato isn’t just light it is simply the best-performing tandem on earth!

This limited edition Macchiato tandem displays a special paint scheme, with design cues from a Vaught F4U Corsair in celebration of Co-Motion Cycles’ 25th anniversary. Using a reverse masking processes with House of Kolor pearlescent paints, all performed in-house.  What better way to celebrate our American roots and our love for speed than with a tandem that flies at attack speed?

The CX Rex is the ultimate light-weight Cyclocross and gravel grinding bike. With its semi-compact design and size specific ACMUltra7 zonally-butted 7005 Aluminum tubing, made just for Co-Motion. Featuring an in-house made tapered head-tube and outfitted with a Chris King Inset internal headset to accommodate the ENVE disc CX tapered carbon fork. With full housing cable guides, it’s ready for the new wave of hydraulic brakes and control levers coming soon.

The CX Rex also features a BB30 bottom bracket shell, along with the new Co-Motion Cycles machined Interchange disc drop-outs with replaceable hangers. Both machined in-house, of course. Other details include 135mm frame spacing for compatibility with 29er disc wheels, and clearance for 38c gravel grinding tires.  This show bike displays our Team Masking paint option, which utilizes a reverse masking process done in-house, allowing customers to choose body and logo colors and includes the painted carbon fork to match.

These were my solution for those days when you need just a little something to pull over your face.  Stretchy and soft these cowls are the perfect size to pull up over your nose then squish down around your neck when the sun comes out.

A fun way to keep the sun out of your eyes and your helmet on your head.  Recycled from mercerized cotton polo shirts in whatever patterns I can find.  I’m not embarrassed to say I’ve used mine to wipe my face down after a ride and then put it right back on.  Machine washable.

The original Kozie Prery cap!  Tested on and devel0ped by seasoned all-weather Chicago cyclists over a harsh winter. -17 degree ride anyone?

Recycled or new material outer in comes in a range of colors and materials making sure there is a hat out there for everyone.  Running jersey lined upper keeps your head cool – or warm – while it wicks away sweat.  Fleece lined earflaps make sure your ears stay frostbite free and cozy all winter long.
