"My wife and I recently purchased our Equator and absolutely love it. 650 miles so far. This bike is also very quiet since it has a drive belt front and back. No more greasy chain and derailleur to deal with when assembling and disassembling our bike in a hotel room. The Rohloff Speedhub is great! This bike has a very smooth ride and is close enough to a straight up road bike to be able to "DROP THE HAMMER" when necessary. Yet stable enough to not panic when encountering some loose gravel. We're very happy with our Co-Motion Equator." Michael D.
