I'm selling my very custom and very dear to my heart "Calvin & Hobbes" Calfee Dragonfly Tandem. The frameset was originally purchased from Craig Calfee in Early 2011 and painted in LA by CycleArt in May 2011. It was originally built up at Calfee's using Shimano Dura-Ace 2x10 Di2, Gates belt drive timing as Single Side Drive (timing belt on the right side). The only frame modification was to have the carbon gusset that joins the Stoker seat tube, chain stays and top tube to be as few centimetres shorter (making the distance from Stoker BB to top of the seat tube a few centimeters shorter). With the Mavic wheelset on the bike, it rolled out of Calfee's shop in June at a complete build (sans pedals) at 22.7 pounds!
From 2011-2016, my now 16 year-old son (#1) and I rode and raced the tandem irregularly. I would speculate that the frame/fork have no more than 1,500 miles. Son #1 moved on from cycling, and I decided the bike needed a refresh for son #2. Within the last 6 months I have replaced the entire drive-train, moving from 2x10 to XTR Di2 3x11. I had Calfee modify the frame to support a rear disc brake (brand new Mavic disc brake wheel included in the sale). The Single Side Drive was changed for conventional non-drive side timing and upgraded to a Gates CDX belt. The original one piece Calfee bar/stem (3t bars mated to ENVE stem with 3t aero bars and Di2 shifters attached) are included in the sale but not currently on the bike. The front derailleur is a one-of-a kind XTR Di2 with an Ultegra triple derailleur chain guide. Since this retrofit, we have ridden less and 100 miles.
The Calvin and Hobbes paint scheme is eye catching. Minor touch up and changing the names painted on the frame would brighten it up for your use.
I prefer to sell the bike to someone who comes to check it over and give it a test ride. However, I will ship, with packing done though my LBS.
Price: $15,000 - open to offers and discussions.
The bike is located in Piedmont, CA 94610.
