44, What’s it for?
What is the idea behind the new 44 models you ask? Our classic model types, Dragonfly, Tetra, and Luna, are now available with 44mm head tube diameters and a matching oversized down tube. These changes create capability with tapered steerer forks, increase stiffness, and provide more efficient power transmission.
Sticking to our “Form-Follows-Function” philosophy, this month, have recently added our Luna 44 to the new line up of bikes. By adding a larger head tube and down tube, but maintaining the diameter of all other tube sizes, we have increased the front end and bottom bracket stiffness without compromising the smooth ride that our Calfee bikes are known for.
Come see our new line up March 10-12th at the 2017 North American Handmade Bike Show in Salt Lake City . If you are unable to make it out there this year, please check back in, as we will have a follow up to NAHBS 2017 journal page in April.
