If your idea of adventure touring extends beyond “the road less traveled” to “the road just barely there,” Co-Motion’s Pangea is your ticket to exploration. The frame is made from Reynolds 725 tubing in Eugene, Oregon and accommodates a 26-inch wheel. This all-terrain touring bike has a comfortable geometry, a compliant ride, and a long, stable wheelbase so you can enjoy long days of riding. With Rohloff’s 14-speed internal hub, you’re sure to have the wide gear range you need to travel wherever the wind blows you, and the split rear dropout lets you choose between a chain or belt drivetrain. Plus, you get light and tough Velocity rims, tough-as-nails Schwalbe Marathon Mondial tires, and an eccentric bottom bracket for easy chain/belt tensioning, as well as fittings for racks, fenders, and three bottles.
At first glance, the Co-Motion Pangea appears to be a hard-tail mountain bike with drop handlebars and all the braze-ons needed to mount fenders and front and rear racks. At second glance, it looks more like a fast, sporty road bike with disc brakes and 26-inch mountain bike tires. In reality, however, the Co-Motion Pangea is neither of these things.
The Pangea is an American made touring bicycle created by a small, Eugene, Oregon (U.S.A.) based bicycle maker named Co-Motion. The Pangea is just one of the company’s off-road touring bike models (the other being the 29” Co-Motion Divide), and while it may be a bicycle with a few obvious contradictions, the Pangea may very well be the face of the modern touring bicycle.
