For globetrotting portability, we also offer the Espresso in a Co-Pilot version, integrating the S+S couplings into custom-drawn tubing specifically made for coupler installation. Shown painted in White Mica, with optional Shimano Ultegra kit, Velomax wheels, and Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork.
Although we aren't as well known for our singles as for our tandems, Co-Motion Cycles has built highly regarded single bicycles since 1988. The Espresso successfully blends our past experience with new developments in tubing and welding technology. This year, we've taken the Espresso a step further in its development as one of the finest road bikes available anywhere, using Reynolds 853 double-butted tubing. This innovative steel alloy becomes stronger after welding, and represents the most advanced in steel technology. And, Reynolds 853, with its wide array of diameters and butting profiles, helps us to very effectively optimize our size-specific tubing choices. Choosing a road bike deserves more attention than simply looking for a tubing label. Mass-produced frames with the same tubing label often are made from a heavier selection of tubes, denying you full performance benefits. A test ride on the Espresso will show you what you've been missing: a crisp riding race bike that glides over the flats, climbs like a cat, and makes you crave curvy roads like never before. The 2003 Espresso is better than ever with the oversized carbon WoundUp or Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork. We've also added more sizes and modernized the fit for today's threadless steering systems to make fitting just about anyone easier. Now more than ever, the Espresso is the ride you've been waiting for.
