Tyler from BikeRumor visited Calfee HQ on his way to the 2013 Sea Otter Classic.  His timing was serendipitous as he stumbled upon a cache of show bikes including a prototype of our new frame model, the Manta (click here for Manta details).  He writes, “Poking around a company’s manufacturing plant almost always yields a few peeks at what’s in the pipeline, and my tour of Calfee’s factory didn’t disappoint. A full factory tour will be posted after Sea Otter’s put to bed, but this new bike just couldn’t wait!  This is a prototype (albeit a rideable, pretty finished version) of a new frame that’ll be available in Pro (road), Adventure (gravel/endurance) and Cyclocross build options.  Craig Calfee says it’s the first time in 20 years he’s been able to take all they’ve learned from so many years of developing their systems and molds and tooling and start with a complete clean sheet, and he seemed pretty excited telling the story…”  Enjoy the complete feature here.
