I’ve been bicycle touring all around the world for more than a decade now, so when I began planning a 14-month-long bicycle tour across 24 different countries in Europe and Africa, I decided to seek out my ideal touring bicycle.
I wanted a bicycle that could go anywhere and do anything; that could be ridden on paved streets, dirt roads, and rocky off-road terrain; that looked good and could be customized to my specific needs; that could carry all the belongings required to survive on the road for weeks or months at a time; that was comfortable, dependable, easy to repair, and possessed incredible stopping power.
I wanted to find the world’s best on-road / off-road touring bicycle… and that’s when I found the Co-Motion Pangea.
For the last two years now, I’ve been using the American made Co-Motion Pangea touring bicycle to navigate through more than 24 different countries in North America, Europe and Africa. I have cycled thousands of miles through sand, snow, mud and ice; climbed hundreds of steep mountains, sped pleasantly through the flat-lands, and flew downhill with joy.
Using Co-Motion’s optional S&S couplers, I was able to split the Pangea in half and easily transport the bicycle on dozens of boats, buses, planes and trains, packing the bicycle inside an airline friendly case that saved me hundreds of dollars on shipping and baggage costs.
With 26 inch wheels and tires, disc brakes, an expertly designed frame, and mounts for fenders, front and rear racks and three water bottle cages, the Co-Motion Pangea is truly an incredible bicycle touring machine capable of handling both smooth tarmac and the roughest off-road terrain.
