New Stuff From Calfee...
Believe it or not, there are now EIGHT different models of Calfee Tandems to choose from. If you add in S&S couplers that list of tandem models expands to 14. I don't know about y'all, but that number of different models really caught me by surprise. I can vividly remember seeing and becoming smitten with the first Calfee Tetra Tandem that I saw in the flesh: it was Larry Black's custom 26" model that he brought along to ETR '01 in Frederick, Maryland. I really didn't grasp just how many different models were now available until a few days ago.
Anyway, and without further adieu..
1. The original Calfee Tetra Tandem
with internal tube design which can still be special ordered.
2. The new Calfee Tetra Tandem
: Calfee's open-frame model with oversized tubing.
3, The Dragonfly Tandem
: Calfee's most lightweight tandem made with high modulus carbon.
4. The Stiletto Recumbent Tandem
: a logical extension of their Stiletto 'bent line of frames.
5. The one-of-a-kind Calfee Recumbent Tandem Trike
with ICS: you've got to see this one to believe it.
6. The other one-of-a-kind custom Calfee Tetra Tandems
like the 26" models.
7. The Calfee / daVinci Carbon Tandem with daVinci's Independent Coasting System
. I believe you can order these through daVinci or Calfee (Todd or Craig will correct me on this point, I'm sure). BTW, rumor has it that Greg LeMond replaced his Calfee S&S Tetra Tandem with a coupled ICS model...
8. And the latest addition to the offerings is the much anticipated Calfee Bamboo Tandem
Yes, it's official... or, at least it's now on the Website and price list. Calfee has gone beyond the prototype stage and is now offering a Bamboo Tandems as part of its ever expanding product line. Rudy V. and others had mentioned that Craig intended to start offering the bamboo tandems '08 and I believe Larry Black may already have one: Photos of the frame are now posted on their Website (www.calfeedesign.com
) under "Frame Types / Tandem". I kind of stumbled onto the bamboo tandem photo the other day which sent me surfing the site for other changes. That's when I discovered the updated 'Recumbent' page with the tandem model and the tandem trike.
