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).

THIS BIKE WEIGHS 35 POUNDS 4 OUNCES Bamboo Features:Smoked and heat treated bamboo tubingHemp fiber lugsTitanium dropoutsOptional carbon PressFit 30, eccentric bottom bracket shell and horizontal dropoutsOptional head tube and seat tube extensionsOptional rear axle spacing, tire clearance, brake type, cable routing, and accessory integrationOptional custom frame geometry10 year warranty

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:
