Introducing the Metolius, pronounced muh TOLL ee us, named after the national wild and scenic river in central Oregon. The Metolius is the latest culmination of Co-Motion tandem design, Bosch and Rohloff technology plus countless hours of testing and refining. This e-tandem is quite possibly the most versatile bicycle we've built to date. 

Based on a similar platform as the popular Steelhead road/ gravel tandem, the Metolius utilizes the most powerful Bosch Performance pedal-assist motor integrated with an electronic shifting Rohloff internally geared hub for the ultimate riding experience. Ride farther with more comfort and less effort.

"The Metolius has taken 20 years off our cycling! This bike can really move. Of course the true advantage for us is the elimination of an epic struggle to get up a hill. It is not uncommon for us to go out on a 20-40 mile ride with 2000’ or more of climbing. The Rohloff is pretty fantastic too, the gearing is incredibly wide ranging and operation is smooth with proper shift technique." Greg H.
