Calfee (www.calfeedesign.com) was early to the carbon fibre game, but has always done things rather differently to the regular smooth, shiny frames of everyone else. Calfee uses a lot of carbon fibre strands to achieve these organic shapes. It’s also not afraid to do odd or left-field stuff like chopping up and integrating a Shimano Di2 system into a mountain bike tandem…
How about this one? It was made by/for one of Calfee’s employees. It’s a two person tandem that’s steered from the rear seat. The owner’s son rides up front while his dad steers. There are S&S couplings too so that he can one day add a central section with another seat for his daughter. Bonkers!
