All the King’s Horses, and All the King’s Men: Co-Motion Reassembly

I’m happy to report our tandem reassembly did not end like the tale of Humpty Dumpty.

It took some time, but our tandem arrived safely in Boulder, Colorado, and is now a big bike again.

It helped that we are staying with cycling friends who have a spacious back porch to spread out the coupler cases and tandem bits.

They also loaned us a workstand and full size tire pump, which also facilitated the rebuild process.

The following sequence of photos give a sense of what it’s like to put the Co-Motion Java together.


Boxed up and on the bus. Always wear your helmet, even (especially?) on the bus.


In transit.


In pieces.


Rear triangle.


Middle section next.


Head tube and fork.



Add tubes and tires, and proceed to inflate.


Take photo, apply filter.

Looking good: time for a shakedown ride.


    • I wasn’t sure either! He rode Bikeshare to meet me so I think he might have forgotten to take it off. Silly bike rider!


  1. Definitely call for celebration… “..Garcon…apporter du champagne s’il vous plait…!!” LoL Safe Ride
