BUTTERY SMOOTH RIDE OF STEEL We’re famous for our steel bikes and the Codas have a lot to do with that. No frame material makes more sense on beat-up city streets than steel. Why? Hit a baseball with a wooden bat and then hit one with an aluminum bat and you’ll know why. You want your frame material to soak up those streets, not beat you with them. And we use only the best: Reynolds cold-worked, double-butted chrome-moly steel.
EASY ACCESSORIZING Every Coda offers a full complement of eyelets and rack mounts to simplify installation of a rear carrier, fenders and ring lock.
GEARED TO GO ANYWHERE The drivetrains on all our Codas feature long cage ATB rear derailleurs, full-size triple chainring cranksets (48/36/26 or 48/38/28) and big 11-32 cassette blocks. This gives you the dual advantage of having high road bike gearing for controlled pedaling at speed on descents and low mountain bike gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It’s a rider-friendly combination that’s made the Coda series one of our best selling bikes.
STOPPING POWER Going elbow-to-door-handle in traffic with cars requires a reliable brake system. Coda Sport and Coda Comp offer linear pull brakes, which are plenty powerful in any condition. To make sure you’re in complete control, even when grabbing a lot of lever for a surprise stop, we include power modulators on the front brakes of the sport and comp. This modulator absorbs excess lever pressure, assuring controlled braking performance
WHEELS BUILT FOR THE STREET Low spoke count wheels, with radial lacing or 2-cross lacing, may look all sexy and smart, but wheels built in this manner require highly tensioned spokes in order to support the rim and rider. This over-tensioning results in a harsher riding wheel, which is the antithesis of the Coda raison d’etre. Every Coda wheel is built with sturdy 20+mm wide double-wall rims that allow us to specify wider tires with a larger contact patch for a smoother, more stable ride, and 32 stainless steel spokes laced in a 3-cross pattern that assures rugged durability.
ROLLING FAST Vittoria Randonneur 32c tires are just the right size for zipping through traffic. Narrow enough to roll reasonably fast, wide enough to provide a secure contact patch. With sufficient air volume to offer a comfortable ride and extra shielding in the casing for superior puncture resistance.
