Calfee Adventure


Calfee Tetra Adventure SRAM Force

We are very excited to introduce the Calfee Adventure. Click here to view geometry, features and some feedback.  We debuted this model in Austin, TX at NAHBS the weekend of Friday, February 25′th.  Both the cycling press and cyclists themselves were thrilled with our execution; enjoy this coverage from James Huang, technical editor with Cyclingnews.com, as well as this October 2011 review in Mountain Flyer Magazine, featuring our Bamboo Adventure.  Jan Heine, Editor of Bicycle Quarterly, published a review of our Tetra Adventure in the Autumn 2011 issue.  He hated to give it back.  Here is a link to the complete review.
Along these same lines, earlier this year, Zap and Neil at Road Bike Action asked us to build the frame module for a gravel road race project bike.  The challenge; build a bike that Neil (recently retired top domestic pro) could race to victory in a grueling gravel road race.  RBA’s October issue landed and here is a link to the 10 page feature.  Here is a link to complete online coverage of the bike, rider and race.  The results are in; Neil won the King of the Mountains competition and second overall in Crusher in the Tushar aboard this Dragonfly Adventure.  Our Dragonfly with Adventure frame options proved the “perfect” bicycle for the rigorous event.  This video captures Neil and the balance of the Pro field throughout the difficult day; rain, gravel, altitude.
Monday after the show, we met for a ride with a group from Bicycles Outback in Waco, TX.  We “enjoyed” a 110 mile ride on beautiful, rolling gravel roads.  The video captures the Calfee Adventure in its intended environment.
