The bike survived excessive desert warmth, freezing-cold winter climate, and a complete host of assorted and tough circumstances. After 4+ years of heavy use and abuse, the bike was beginning to look fairly beat up. The paint was chipping, there have been rub marks the place both my physique or different elements of the bike had been bumping up in opposition to the body repeatedly over time, and the bike typically was getting fairly worn down. However I like my Co-Movement Pangea… and I needed to apply it to my upcoming bike journey in Portugal, Spain, France, Andorra and Norway. So, somewhat than purchase a complete new bike, I made a decision to ship the body of my trusty Pangea again to Co-Movement Cycles and have them re-paint it for me.
