NAHBS 2016 – Caletti takes home Best Finish award for amazing Road Race Special…

first_imgThe shoes and helmet are from Giro, but the slingshot is all Caletti. After seeing some made by Hunter Cycles, he used spare titanium tubes to put a couple together. This one’s the last of them, and it’s yours for $250. He machined the ends to hold the sling, and the handle is a hollow chamber for storing ammo with a wine cork as a plug. John Caletti had a few new models on display, but the real showstopper was his Road Race Special steel road bike custom painted by Jeremiah Kille.The painstakingly detailed design covers everything and even extends to the helmet, shoes and another fun accessory. It’s a customer’s bike, like many of the frames at the show, so it’s not just an art piece. But it did send Caletti home with the Best Finish award. Check out all the angles, plus his new 29er, adventure and city bikes, below… Road Race Special, shown here with more traditional custom paint, is his version of a crit racer. It’s stiff thanks to oversized steel tubes that are a mix of Columbus Life and True Temper S3 top and down tubes.New Scrambler is a moto inspired town bike that’ll come in stock sizes and be more affordable than his custom bikes.It’s set up to run single speed, internally geared or a normal 1x drivetrain. Caletti said, where possible, there’s an emphasis on US made components with stem and post from Thomson, Chris King headset and Jones Precision Wheels. The complete bikes will sell for $5,150.His new adventure road bike in titanium fills in for a gravel bike, something almost every builder had in one incarnation or another.It gets flat mount brakes and the ENVE GRD fork. Kille did the graphics here, too.He’s also got a new 29er, also in ti. It’s got modern geometry with long top tube for a short stem to get proper cockpit length and a slacker head angle for 120mm fork 69°.last_img read more

Faehner Esq., LLC, and Steven Hitchcock of Special Needs Lawyers, P.A., at the Clearwater Bar’s 66th Annual Oyster Roast March 24. More than 600 attendees enjoyed oysters, spirits, and food from 13 food stations, all sponsored by bar members, on the grounds of the Florin Roebig law firm in Palm Harbor. The event may have started even earlier than 1946, as one of the CBA members reports his mother attended her first oyster roast in 1939. The oyster roast is thought to be one of the longest running local bar events in the state and maybe the Southeast. The annual event has already been scheduled for March 23 of next year.
