Jim's Ti Road Bike Frame with Disc Brakes

We had the privilege of building another bike for Jim. This time we crafted a painted titanium road bike with low-mount disc brakes, through-axles, and Di2 electronic shifting cable routing ports. It just came back from Spectrum Powderworks in Team Caletti colors and looks fantastic! We left the drive-side chainstay raw titanium to show what's under the hood.

Caletti Cycles Global Headquarters

We are in our new digs and loving it! In March we moved to our new live/work space on the westside of Santa Cruz. We are thrilled to be one of the first tenants in the Delaware Addition project, which is one of the few projects in the country to be awarded LEED Neighborhood Pilot Project by the U.S. Green Building Council, and the building is a certified "green building." Our cycling caps are off to the Redtree Partners for exceeding our expectations. The space is amazing. It's already making production more efficient and working out as a great ride rendezvous point. Please come by to visit—we'd love to give you the tour!

Open House Party

We have moved! We are in our new studio on the west side of Santa Cruz. It's a live/work condo that is part of a development that has earned LEED Platinum for a neighborhood project. The main idea is to create a "car-light" neighborhood, since there will be some amenities on site as well as in the surrounding neighborhood, and providing housing and work all in one space - all so people will be more likely to bike and walk. It's a great space with cool modern architecture and more space to help with workflow, more room for the machines and tooling as well as fit area and showroom. It's a more comfortable space to work and the added space and more efficient layout will help me to do great work efficiently. I hope it also creates a more engaging and enjoyable experience for our customers who come visit to plan their bikes and pick them up when ready to ride.
If you are able to make it to our open house, look for 2120 Delaware Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95060 to get directions. Our actual address of 104 High Road doesn't show up yet on the maps. It's near Delaware/Swift, across the street from Cafe Iveta.

Ride here! Wilder Ranch is right around the corner, or drop in from Bonny Doon - loads of great riding nearby and we will have valet bike parking out front. Our friends at the Spokesman Bicycles are brining a keg of beer to share.
