Calfee Manta, New Model Profile Shot, Neil Shirley First Ride

We debuted our new frame model, named “Manta”, at the 2013 Sea Otter Classic this last weekend. Click here for Manta details.  We promised the first ride to Neil Shirley, Assistant Editor at Road Bike Action. He’s the perfect pilot for our prototype; pro-peloton fast and lucky enough to pedal every frame made. He took the Manta out on Thursday, Friday and again on Sunday. How did we do? What does it look like all finished up? Did he like it? Make certain to enjoy the complete feature, here; http://www.roadbikeaction.com/Features/content/313/6676/Calfee-Unveils-New-Suspension-Manta.html
