We've had similar experiences with our new Mocha - very similar bike with 650b wheels, lower component spec.

Having to remove both wheels to use our hitch mounted rack is bit of a pain with the...

I bought the Tubus rack but on the Mocha it interferes with the disc brake caliper. I could space it away from the frame, but in that case I can save a lot of money and go with the Topeak, as we...

Sorry to hear this... that is quite an expensive repair. Did they offer any advice on how you could have mounted the rack? I have not been able to find any rack that will fit my new Co-Motion...

It is ironic perhaps... we had a Trek T900 with 26 inch wheels and the first thing I did was swap the 2in tires for 1.5 inch at higher pressure. Researching the new purchase, I opted for the 650b...

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm sure that this will work out just fine, once I get the bugs worked out and have a spare tire or two. Hopefully the Compass Switchback tires at 55psi max pressure...

Good advice which I will take to heart. I'm mulling over my options for 650b tires at the moment. I did find a cheap Kenda tire which got us through yesterday's ride, and will serve as a spare....

It's a Schwalbe Marathon 650b 42mm. Torn right at the bead. It was either defective or installed improperly, so I'll follow up with the dealer for a replacement, but it's still going to be a...

Grounded by 650b tires

Well we decided to buy the Co-Motion Mocha only to have a tire failure after our first ride. We were planning a ride with friends tomorrow, but no store in the area has 650b tires in stock, so...

Thanks everyone for confirming what I've been thinking. I could get a second set of 700c wheels, but probably don't need them

Mocha (650b) vs Primera (700c)

Considering both of these for our new tandem. Main difference is wheel size, wider tires, and thru axle on the Mocha. there are some fairly old posts on the subject here, but nothing recent. ...

Thanks - I'll try that. I may be able to ride both this weekend, but the price I'm seeing for the Speedster is $1,900 more than the Primera (LBS offering the Primera at $400 discount)... 54% more...

Max tire width on Co-Motion Primera

I'm very close to buying the Primera - got to try it out today at the LBS, and it felt great - fit like a glove. Now to get my wife out there this weekend for a ride and hopefully it will be a...

I have heard nothing but good things about Co-Motion in general, so I have no doubt that I (we) will be happy with one. Tempted by the Speedster, but I think for our needs the Primera will be more...

I agree with Null66... you probably pushed too hard in the dreary cold weather and it has taken a toll on your body. Rest, get well, and try again. It is still very early in our Wisconsin cycling...

Gotta love Trek : Domane 4.7

Haven't posted in a while, but had to share news about the new baby.

I just purchased a 2014 Domane 4.7 to "supplement" my 8 year old Giant OCR1, and aside from my wallet (N+1 = 4N), I couldn't be...
