Great Improvement

Consfairly expensive!!
ProsWell made - comfortable & positive to use
I purchased this Co-Motion shifter to replace the Rohloff to reduce the annoyance of difficulty gripping the Rohloff shifter in wet weather.
I read from the description that this shifter was made to clamp to a 31.8mm handlebar section. I have a ‘Modolo Dumbo’ 3D handlebar which from the description I misread as a diameter of 25.4mm.
This diameter is the clamp area – the bar is actually 22.2mm.
However, I purchased a 25.4 – 31.8mm spacer to make up the difference, & took up the extra space using ‘Gorilla’ tape.
After a couple of rides, I had to tighten the shifter clamp to bed it in.
This shifter is easier than the Rohloff to use, being larger would be helpful to riders with cold or rheumatic hands!
The shifting action is smooth & positive, installation was as simple as the Rohloff.
Ironically it hasn’t rained since I installed this shifter 2 weeks ago!!
This is a great improvement to my Thorn Nomad converted ebike. I’ve nearly achieved the pinnacle of biking heaven IMO!!!

Co motion with aero bars
By

I’d like to fit this to my drop bars but to the RIGHT of where my aerobars are fitted. Is this possible or does the co motion have to be fitted close to the stem? I am happy to change my dro bars as well if needed.
Hi there,

You should be able to move it along slightly so it fits next to your aero bars without an issue. Please bare in mind that this is designed for use with a 31.8 clamp, so it may be loose fitting so you may need to use something to fill the gaps.

Thanks.
Spacer

Hi, I want to use this Co-Motion shifter to replace the awful rubber Rohloff one, but I have flat bars which are 31.8mm in the middle for the stem but not further out where I currently have the Rohloff shifter. If I got a spacer ring specially made for 25.4 to 31.8mm to put on the bars for this shifter would this work? I am thinking it would. What are your thoughts? I can't get on with the std rubber Rohloff one especially in warm weather with sweaty hand slipping on the grip making changing gear very difficult.
Many thanks,
Alex
Yes, many exist already, will just be a case of working out the length to suit the shifter/ bars.

Is there a shim/ adapter to make this fit 25,4 or 26mm bars?

Hi

Thank you for your enquiry, unfortunately there isn't a shim suitable to convert this down to a small diameter as its for 31.8mm only.

Kind Regards
What Handlebars Would You Suggest As The Best For This Shifter?
By

Hi,

As this shifter separates and fits to the larger swell of the bar it means its pretty much universal so almost any oversized (31.8mm) handlebar will work, allowing you to choose the size and shape that best suits you.

Thanks.
How Long Is The 31.8Mm Part Of The Handlebar Needed To Mount The Shifter? Thank You.

Hi,

This shifter only requires 10mm of space on the handlebar to be fitted.

Thanks.
