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

first_img“When I started my football career at the age of 16 in Belgium, the Europeans never taught me how to dribble the ball or pass they only taught me how to be disciplined and what to do at the right time. They just polish what we as Africans have,” Oliseh, who captained Nigeria to the 1994 African Cup of Nations said.“There are certain things we have in Africa that people in Europe don’t have and they will never have but what they have we can have it. We have the skills especially in dribbling that’s why you find it is easier for a young Kenyan of African player to dribble past defenders. We don’t have infrastructures but must work on what we have and that’s creativity and that’s does not come from being taught it comes in the streets of Nairobi,’’ Oliseh stated.At the end of his three-day tour, Oliseh, who captained Nigeria to Olympic gold in 1996, aims to impact knowledge and share his football experience to Kenyan coaches and young players from several academies in Nairobi.Sunday Oliseh is in Kenya to conduct football coaching clinic in Nairobi.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThe 42-year-old said he prefers to work with young players because having youth structures leads to football success in a country.“I intend to share with my continent what I have experienced, seen, studied while playing in the Bundasliga and how we can help the Kenyan football get one step forward.”While lauding Football Kenya Federation for starting the junior leagues of the Under 14, 15 and 17, Oliseh urged Kenya to imitate the German’s top flight league Bundasliga for them to succeed.“The football that is being played in the Bundasliga is a football that if we Africa have to progress we have no choice but to imitate it. I played for seven years in German league and most of the major achievements I had as a soccer player I got them while playing in the Bundasliga,” he explained.“What we need to have as Kenya and Africans is structures to work with young players. We have no choice because either you buy success or your create it. The players coming out of Bundasliga are made out of there and that’s what we as Kenya and Africa need to do.”-Super Eagles coach-Oliseh resigned as Nigeria National Football Team head coach in February this year.PHOTO /Raymond MakhayaOliseh had a one year stint with the Super Eagles before resigning in February this year due to the inability of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to honour the terms of his contract.However, Oliseh said he has no bad blood with the NFF and enjoyed coaching the three-time African Cup of Nations champions.“Deciding to resign from the coaching job of the Super Eagles is the most difficult decision I ever took in my whole life. It took me a whole month to decide it. Most of the time I was leaving in Belgium so I was not reachable to give comments but it got to a time I had to think of my two kids and the 21 years of marriage I have had with my wife and decided to pass the button to another person,” He underscored.In his ten years as Super Eagles captain, Oliseh guided Nigeria to three World Cup qualifiers, Olympic gold and African Cup of Nations glory in 1994.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Former Nigeria defensive midfielder Sunday Oliseh while addressing the media in Nairobi on December 20, 2016.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 20 – Former Nigeria defensive midfielder Sunday Oliseh has singled out Africa as the most talented continent with players who have football skills compared to the rest of the world.Oliseh, a former head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria is in Kenya to conduct coaching clinic and outlined that African players only get their football skills polished when they move to play in the European leagues.last_img read more
