Co-Motion Java 29er Tandem


This is one of Co-Motion’s new Java tandems with the 29er wheel size. One of the less obvious benefits of 29 inch wheels is that you can use either wide off-road tires or thin road tires on them. Co-Motion saw that this feature is especially cool for tandems! Now a couple can use the same bike as a touring bike with 32mm road tires and as a gravel-rider with wider 2.1″ off-road tires. The same tandem can do a century one weekend and ride rails-to-trails type terrain the next weekend.

Co-Motion-Java1.4Here’s a nice shot of the 2.1″ knobby tire as it passes through the fork. Plenty of clearance! All Co-Motions are handmade in Eugene, Oregon. You can tour the factory if you’re ever in the area.
