This is the second Quad that Co-Motion built for us. The first was the Periscope quad and we were never comfortable with the ride so after a year, Co-Motion suggested they take it back and build us a large quad with couplers. What a great company! They really stand behind their bikes and customer service. This is what we were looking for!
As you can tell from the pictures, It is long at about 12 ft but rides beautifully. I captain and I am 6’4” and my three stokers are all about 5’7” now. Initially we had stoker kits on seat 2 and 3 but they have been removed and are no longer available. I still have crank shorteners on the second position to give my daughter another inch so it is a more comfortable fit and we can maximize speed.
This was a custom build by Co-Moton for us but is most similar to a Speedster quad with 105. The three Stainless Steel couplers are an upgrade that allows easier shipping or transporting. This is not a convertible and the couplers are only to break it down and not for reconfiguration. Still a great option should you need it and list it is an $1350 option.
For being such a big bike, it is really fast. When my daughters were younger, we would see another rider and just crank it up and catch them. Even though it is fast, the Avid breaks work great and stop this monster quickly and safely.
Obviously the question is if I like the bike so much, why and I selling it and the twins are going to college in the fall and there will be fewer and fewer chances to ride the “bus”. It has been a great ride for us and now it is time for someone else to be able to spend time with the family or friends and enjoy quality time or crank it up and blow by other bikes.
The bike is $6700 and I also have a car quad rack that I paid $700 to ATOC to build that I will sell for $300 more. If you are un-familair with ATOC, look them up because there is no easier way to load and haul a multiple seat bike. I can load this bike on my van by myself.

The TCA cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of any ad placed on this website. Therefore, buyers should be mindful that internet-based transactions — long distance, or in person, have certain inherent risks. Buyers and Sellers are both at risk for theft by fraud and any face-to-face meetings also present risks related to theft as well as personal safety. Please take time to do some research about buying and selling from one of the many articles that you’ll find on line, such as one of these:
http://www.kbb.com/car-advice/articles/protecting-yourself-from-online-fraud/ (it applies to bikes also)
You may also want to think about the following (courtesy of Mark Livingood):
Ideally, most buyers and sellers prefer to find one another in close enough proximity to permit a face-to-face meeting, a physical inspection of the tandem and, of course, a test ride; perhaps even an extended test ride. Fortunately, at least in all my dealings with private sellers, buyers and tandem-specialty dealers or builders, long distance transactions have always been quite pleasant and ended up with no surprises. So, while there is some degree of risk, if you’re willing to trust your “gut” on a long distance transaction neither you nor the other party should end up being any worse for wear if everyone keeps their cards on the table throughout the transaction.
NOTE: A detailed sales contract should be drawn up for all long distance transactions. Language should be included that spells out all provisions regarding who has responsibility for the tandems shipment, under what conditions the buyer may decline to accept the tandem at the time of delivery and who will bear the responsibility for shipping costs. As an example, sales agreements should plainly state if the seller clearly mis-represented the condition or features of the tandem, or it was damaged in route, they bear the burden for a remedy subject to approval by the buyer. If the buyer simply changes their mind for any reason and no longer wants the tandem, they bear the burden for all shipping costs. In some cases, buyers and sellers may want to use a trusted, local bike shop as an agent for receiving and inspecting the tandem to protect their mutual interests.
The use of a third party escrow service may also aid your transaction.
