The Primera from Co-Motion is a classic road tandem, offering a comfortable ride, stable handling and excellent performance. Our in-stock example features S&S couplers that allow the tandem to be disassembled for easy packing and transport.
Handbuilt in Eugene, Oregon, the Primera is ready for long tours, short club rides and everything in between. Built with tandem-specific butted chromoly steel tubing, the Primera will handle and corner with confidence. Rack and fender mounts, plus bottle cage mounts galore ensure that long trips are part of the Primera's original design. There's even a pump peg for a full-length pump behind the head tube (remember those?). An alloy fork is mounted in the oversized 44mm head tube, adding an extra dash of handling precision. The aforementioned S&S couplers do not affect the torsional strength of the Primera's frame. If anything, they're actually the strongest part of the frame.
Shimano's 11-speed 105 components are found throughout the Primera's drivetrain, including the dual-control levers and the derailleurs. An alloy Co-Motion 50/34T crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette boast a wide gearing range for tackling hilly terrain. Stopping power is equally impressive, with 200mm disc brakes being clamped by Avid's BB7 cable-operated brakes.
40-spoke hubs are laced to Alex ATD 490 alloy rims, bringing a durable wheelset to the Primera. Continental's Ultrasport II 700x28c tires bring easy speed and tenacious grip to every mile.
An alloy FSA Omega compact handlebar and FSA Gossamer stem is found up front for the captain. An alloy Co-Motion stoker bar and adjustable alloy Co-Motion stoker stem makes finding a comfortable fit for the back-seater easy. Selle Italia supplies the X1 saddle for the captain, while the stoker gets an X3 Lady saddle. This example comes with an S&S spanner wrench at no additional cost.
The Co-Motion Primera is available in Small, Medium and Large. Custom geometry can be requested. A wide array of custom paint schemes can be ordered, as well as useful options to make the Primera uniquely your own. Please call for details.
