Now more than ever, it looks like we need a new tandem.
We want a tandem that is lighter, stronger, and built to last. We also want to run a rear disc brake.
Around a month ago, we visited the Calfee factory, and decided that is the tandem we wanted! However the price was out of our reach, but that's not just Calfee... Pretty much all new performance oriented tandems are priced high (it's a small enthusiast market).
So I talked to the nice folks at Calfee and they agreed to let us register at Calfee for our wedding gift registry... LOL! The funny thing is, that we were not the first to come up with this, Calfee had done it before for another couple.
It is the only thing we are registered for. Who needs $300 salt-shaker sets, $200 picture frames, and $900 plates
Our families and some of our friends will call Calfee and contribute their wedding gift towards our Calfee. I'm sure we will still have to foot a substantial balance at the end, but least it will put the bike within our reach
We already have a serial number, and our Calfee frameset is due to be completed around 4-days before our wedding.
It will look something like this but ours will be white to continue our theme of white bikes, and without the Zipp wheels.
Most of the components will be transferred from our other bike, except for the wheelset and brakes.
Here is a rendering of white (our fork will be white too though):
