NAHBS 2012 Press Highlights

Calfee Dragonfly SuperClean front end

Road Bike Action, video:  Zap, venerable editor of RBA, stopped by the Calfee booth at NAHBS 2012 bright and early Friday morning; he grabbed Mike for a quick product update. Mike described the new SuperClean front end and PowerPost on our 2012 show Dragonfly as well as our Lemond inspired Calfee Adventure with dual discs, integrated front lighting, Ultegra Di2, PowerPost and more. Those were only two of the eight bikes we displayed at the show. More to come on the balance of the bikes.  ENJOY THE VIDEO HERE

MTBR, video:  The founder of MTBR caught up with Craig Calfee at the show and shot this great video; they were fascinated with our newest tandem model; Tetra 29er.  This no-compromise adventure tandem weighs just over 30 pounds, features electronic shifting and is ready to accept any tire you choose; imagine a rail-trail tour or a gravel road race with 35c tires.  ENJOY THE VIDEO HERE.

Bike Rumor, photo essay:  Tyler from Bike Rumor spent a good amount of time in our booth at NAHBS; he walked away with some great photos and product details. His photo of our brand-new SuperClean front end goes a long way towards explaining this new module; enhanced form and function for your electronic drive train equipped bike.  ENJOY THE PHOTO ESSAY HERE.

Bike Radar and Cycling News, photo essay:  James Huang from Bike Radar and Cycling News spent some time in our booth at the show. He managed to photograph just about every bike we brought; he did a great job capturing the key features of our Dragonfly with PowerPost and SuperClean front end. You’ll find a beautiful bamboo tandem in the mix; that sled featured a Rohloff hub, dual belt drive, dual discs, generator front hub, a special font for the logo and tons of red anodized highlights.  ENJOY THE PHOTO ESSAY HERE.

Velo, photo essay:  We are very excited about this demo Calfee Adventure dual disc with our PowerPost and our Internal Battery and Wiring System for Ultegra Di2; we collaborated with Nick Legan, Tech Editor at Velo, to create this machine. We discovered Nick is a gravel road enthusiast and approached him with this opportunity. He’ll shortly take delivery of the machine; he’ll ride it for a spell. We can’t wait for him to share his thoughts.  He also noticed and featured our new SuperClean front end; that module deserves more space.  Look for further mentions and details very shortly.  ENJOY THE PHOTO ESSAY HERE.

Los Angeles Times, article:  Handmade bicycles earn a mention in the LAT; we’re increasingly busy and so it seems are our fellow boutique, domestic bicycle builders.  ENJOY THE ARTICLE HERE.

Road Bike Action, article:  The editorial gang at Road Bike Action showered us with some pre-NAHBS love. They justify their enthusiasm for Calfee Design with a Top Five reason list.  ENJOY THE ARTICLE HERE.
