The “Calypte”- named after a NW wintering hummingbird and inspired by the rides where it finds it’s home. From country meadows to alpine climbs, the Calypte is at home in flight.

Light, fast and striking, the Calypte lives up to it’s name sake. The frame is fillet brazed from a “builders choice” tube selection with house-shaped tubing. The hand made bilaminate head lug echos the mantle of the hummingbird. This bike features a Falz fork and Dura Ace 9000 component group. The multi colored fade paint was provided by Keith Anderson.
