New Calfee tandem 300 mile report
We received the new frame/fork exactly 3 weeks ago today and have ridden 300 miles on the new bike. We are extremely pleased and want to thank the "Tandemgeek" for his write up on his experience with their Calfee tandem.
Our expectations have been exceeded. We road a ride on Sunday that we would not have attempted on the old bike. It was the Tulsa tough Gran Fondo in Tulsa Ok. There are hills in the Tulsa area and we climbed all of them with no problem except one where we had to walk the bike through wet gravel and then climb a very steep hill, I started to develop a cramp and choose to stop and walk up the last few yards. We are both amazed at how well we are able to climb on this bike as compared to the old one.
The bike is smooth and comfortable, we like it a lot! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a really nice well made lightweight tandem.
