    New Calfee bamboo tandem for sale

    New Calfee Tandem Large, Medium $5600.00

    Just came across this. In case anyone wants to add something different to the collection.



    New Calfee Tandem Large, Medium Road Bikes For Sale

    This is a New Bamboo Tandem by Calfee Design. Craig Calfee is one of the most respected custom frame builder is the US. I built it for me and X-wife with the best set of parts available to tandems. We never road the bike and someone is going to get a very unique bike at extremely good price (symptom of divorce).[]

    The Natural carbon fiber is Bamboo and this frame has a 25 year warranty. Hemp wrapped lugs look great. If you are in the market for a bicycle frame that is more comfortable, more durable, more beautiful and far more unique than the carbon and metal herd, look no further than a Calfee Bamboo.

    Feel free to call me for more info. 479-747-3099. The bike will be professorially boxed and shipped. Estimated shipping cost is somewhere between 200.00 to 300.00 depending on location and insurance (optional).

    We rode one of Calfee's demo for three days on a tour when Fed Ex lost our carbon Calfee. We were impressed with the ride. The one problem is everyone asks about it whereever you go.

    At least the bamboo would distract from the inevitable and repetitive questions about the Gate's carbon drive.

    I wonder if I could adhere a graphic wrap image of a bicycle chain on the belt, so fewer would notice?

    Here is a carbon Calfee:
