Co-Pilot (S+S Couplers)
Since 1993, the S&S bicycle torque coupler has revolutionized the bicycle industry and forever changed the image of travel bikes. No longer is it necessary to compromise cycling performance in order to build in packability. Co-Motion was the first bicycle company in the world to offer bicycles with S&S couplers as a standard feature. A close look at the S&S coupler reveals the expert engineering that allows the system to work so perfectly. Interlocking tapered teeth are drawn together by a threaded lock ring, providing an extremely rigid joint with minimal tightening force. These hardened stainless steel couplers are extremely durable and reliable. In fact, a well-made coupled frame is measurably stronger than an identical frame without couplers. Some builders use plated or non-plated versions of the coupler because they are cheaper and speed up bicycle production, however we only the use the original stainless steel couplings. These cost more but they assure a lifetime of flawless and corrosion-free operation.
Naturally, the best reason to own a Co-Pilot is that you never have to leave your passion for cycling behind when you travel. Your Co-Pilot checks on as regular luggage, using our Co-Pilot travel case that meets airline regulations, saving you money and hassles each time you travel.
Note:This option is available only if you've already chosen the Co-Pilot (S+S Couplers) option.
The normal brushed finish on the stainless steel Co-Pilot S+S couplers is attractive as it is. But if you want to add some undeniable showroom pizzaz, our Polished Coupler option will really turn some heads. Our intensive 3-stage polishing process will bring your S+S couplers to a beautiful and long-lasting shine. This same process is used on our 17-4 stainless steel dropouts.

If you plan to mount a kickstand to your Co-Motion, these mounts are the best way to do it.
Not only do they provide a secure mounting point for the kickstand but they also reroute the shifting and
brake cables for smooth operation. We have several options depending on the model and drivetrain you choose.
Off-road model is designed for wide tire clearance and incorporates a yoke near the BB shell. With these models you can choose either a stainless steel center mount near the BB, or a chain-stay plate version mounted near the rear dropout. Bike models that don't include a yoke have a choice of a traditional cnc-machined plate under the bike near the BB shell or the rear chain-stay plate near the rear dropout. If you go with a Pinion gearbox drive train, you must choose the chain-stay oriented mount. Please note, the chain-stay plate mount includes a kickstand.
CTX Carbon Frame Option
The CTX upgrade, formerly CS3, utilizes Variwall's super light, super strong THERMLX steel tubing with an all-carbon integrated seat mast completing the main triangle. CTX combines the unmistakable ride of advanced ultra light steel tubing with the amazing performance and weight savings of carbon, with no seat-post. The carbon seat tube extends all the way to the saddle, that's where it gets the name "integrated". Imagine shaving a full pound off the disc-equipped Klatch gravel bike or Camino road bike. The saddle is secured with a custom machined aluminum topper, or mastcap, made in-house and integrated with an ENVE saddle clamp. CTX frames will include internal brake routing for hydraulic or mechanical housing, internal Di2 wiring ports, and a PF30 bottom bracket shell.
The Ristretto CTX option features our oversized bi-oval CMUltra 7 7005 aluminum downtube, and of course, the carbon seatmast bonded into the bottom bracket receiver lug and top tube/seat tube lug we machine here.

Made in the USA.
