Calfee Tetra

I’ve recently acquired this Calfee Tetra custom.  Being my size it will likely get some parts put on it and ridden, if at least for a little while.  The fork is not the correct size, so don’t mind it.

Tetras have and interesting but very simplistic way of joining the seat stays with the chainstays: via bonded titanium dropouts and bolts.

These gussets are very characteristic of Calfee design.  They’re logically sound but aesthetically aren’t for everyone.

A nice touch with the integrated cable stops on the head tube here.  Also, more gussets on the bottom bracket.

At 1480 grams the frame is no weight weenie but has enough character to warrant a build and text ride!
