Calfee Bamboo Tandems; a functional and elegant alternative

There are many good reasons to choose Calfee Bamboo for your next tandem bicycle frame. Calfee Bamboo bicycle frames are very stiff, transferring power efficiently; are durable, resisting damage from stress and impacts; are comfortable, surpassing aluminum, steel, titanium and most carbon frames in smoothness. Our bamboo tubes mitered together and bound by epoxy soaked hemp fiber create a frame whose most notable characteristic, beyond beauty, is this incredible vibration dampening.  Enjoy this very thorough and well written article about our bamboo product.  As well, please consider this recent feedback from a new Calfee Bamboo Pro owner.  Read this build detail about the very special bamboo tandem, pictured below.

Calfee Bamboo Tandem with Rohloff, Dual Disc Brakes, Front Generator Hub, Jones Bar and Dual Composite Belt Drive

Compared to our carbon tandem frames, our bamboo enjoys similar ride characteristics.  The subtle weight penalty (a Large/Medium bamboo tandem frame weighs about 8.5 pounds) may be offset by our bamboo’s beauty, uniqueness, comfort and durability.  Our bamboo frames are an excellent choice for tandem teams interested in particularly rough roads.
