We placed the order for our new small/small Calfee frame about 2 weeks ago, the Ready To Ship date is June 3rd. I can hardly wait.
We are currently riding a 1989 Santana Visa that we bought from our neighbors last July and have become avid tandem riders, we had a Santana Targa several years ago but ended up selling it because of a family tragedy. Rode motorcycles for a few years and decided to see if we still liked to tandem, found out we do, hence the new bike. BTW the motorcycle has been sold, a Honda Goldwing trike.
I have nearly all of the parts purchased for the build when the frame arrives.
Here is my list:
The frame will include the Bushnell eccentric
Bontrager Tandem Wheels - purchased a new set from Mel at Tandems East
FSA Gossamer front crank
FSA SLK carbon rear crank
Enve Carbon fork
Chris King headset
Thomson Elite X2 stems - front and rear
Thomson Elite seatposts - front and rear
Zipp Carbon front handlebars
Profile Design T2 Wing rear handlebars
Specialized Toupe Pro front saddle
Bontrager ladies rear saddle
Sampson Stratics front pedals
Shimano M520 rear pedals
Shimano 6703 shifters
Dura Ace front derailleur
Dura Ace long cage rear derailleur
Ultegra brakes front and rear with Kool Stop Salmon pads
11-28 Ultegra cassette, i wanted a 12-27 but they no longer offer it
Bontrager 700 X 23 tires, they are actually the time trial version that I am going to use because they were sitting around gathering dust. I plan to order a set of Veloflex Corsa tires in the next couple of days. I am actually using this tire and the new front Bontrager wheel on our old tandem right now and it feels great.
N-Gear jump stop
Performance handlebar tape
Jagwire stainless brake and shift cables
I think that pretty well covers it, the finished product should come in right at 30-31 pounds.
