    Co-Motion Divide

    Have a Divide on order. I should have it by Turkey Day! I havent seen any posts about it yet. Does anyone have one? I Plan on running BB7 road brakes and a sram group. Wood chipper style bars and three sets of wheels. Light weight wheels for mtn bike riding/racing, heavy duty wheels for touring, and road wheels.

    Damn.

    I think most folks on this board lack the refined palette necessary to fully appreciate that bike, but I'll congratulate you. I'm jealous.

    Post lots of pictures.

    I'll second the request for pictures! If I hadn't just bought a new bike I think I'd be ordering up one of those frames as well. It looks like a great all around design. Congratulations!

    I'll definitely post some photos when it is delivered and built. I was hoping someone had built one up already.

    The geometry is pretty similar to the Fargo, except it has less eyelets/braze-ons and costs about $1500 more.
    Enjoy the ride!

    The Fargo doesnt really look similar at all. It also didn't meet my requirements. What's that Kung Fu cro mo they use on the Fargo? I'm be happy with the Reynolds tubing I think. I wish braze-ons weren't so difficult to add to a steel frame. And I will enjoy the ride.

    what were your requirements exactly? i'm just curious what sold you on this, because for $2k you could get a pretty awesome custom jobber.

    that aside, its a sweet bike and i look forward to seeing it built.

    It's not at all like the current Fargo, that is true. It is very much like the first generation Fargo though, which is no longer in production.

    Co-Motions are nice rigs. The shop where I work has sold several and I have built up and worked on many. You will love it. They do a great job on the frames and details are spot on.

    Congrats! Looking forward to checking yours out when it is done and you (hopefully) post some pics.

    Sorry, should have specified that. I was comparing to the Gen1 Fargo. And I'm in no way trying to poo poo your decision on the Co-Motion.
    Enjoy the ride!

    Looks really sweet.

    Kind of a like a Gen 1 Fargo, as others have pointed out, but one that wasn't designed by a guy named Bud Tugley.

    Here it is pretty much done. I used mostly spare parts so it's a bit of a hodge podge till I acquire a bit more funds.

    I haven't loaded yet and probably wont do that till next summer. My first off road ride will be tomorrow.
    Great part about Co-Motion is getting to choose a color. Picked the metallic blue and very happy with it.
    The bars are Profile Design Legra bars.

    That's a really interesting bike. I might have to look into that as an option.... strangely, for the TDR.

    To echo AZ.MTNS, 'first generation awesome' indeed. Looks a real quiver killer, a viable answer to the 'if you could only have one bike...' question. Did you get the stock geo or go custom? Size? Dimensions? Specs? Do I sound like a stalker?

    Picked up the standard 52. I'm too lazy to post the geo, you can check their website. I plan on using as a road bike and cross bike too. Took it out yesterday for about 60 miles. It was pretty awesome and my new favorite bike.
