"I had ample opportunity to test the wind bucking ability of the Americano Pinion. The combination of low and centalized center of gravity give the bike superior into the wind and crosswind performance. The perfect fit also supported the comfort needed to go 90+ miles into an insane wind and/or rain from Tucson, AZ to Nogales, Mexico on day 1 of my trip. The even spacing of the gears kept me as efficient and effective as possible." Dave B.

"After 19 to 20 months of owning and riding a Co-Motion Americano for nearly 8000 miles, it's still the best bike I have ever purchased. It has proven to be dependable, consistent, well balanced, and can endure some harsh punishment." Paul R.

Gear Inches- The descriptions above refer to gear inches for comparison purposes. The term refers to the effective equivalent wheel diameter per pedal stroke. For example, if you're pedaling the Divide Pinion in first gear, each full pedal stroke will produce the equivalent of one wheel revolution of a 17.2" wheel, while the highest gear will produce the equivalent rotation of a 109.4" wheel.
