Advanced Composites Engineering?
Craig just calls it common sense. In 1987, Craig Calfee became obsessed with the idea of building a carbon fiber bike. Maybe it was the fact that he was riding a steel bike when he crashed head-on in the streets of Boston. Or maybe it was his educational background in sculpture and design. Either way, he was able to get his hands on some rare material being utilized by the space program, and he hasn’t put it down since.
Carbon Fiber is incredibly light, strong, stiff and absorbent. To Craig, it made perfect sense to apply these properties when trying to design a better bike. And apparently a lot of other folks agree. Because over twenty years later, the entire bicycle industry is following in his footsteps.
Today there are over 5000 loyal Calfee owners. Some haven’t done too shabby in competitions like the Hawaii Ironman, Gravel Road Worlds and the Tour de France. Even though Craig’s frames are considered to be among the best in the world, he can usually be found tinkering away on our factory floor, still in pursuit of a better bike.
