Sharks seem to cause as much controversy as bicycle helmet laws. The discussion is rife in Australia, where a hunting posse is dispatched after every attack. The facts are that sharks are some of the most fascinating and misunderstood creatures in the ocean. Did you know they have receptors in their head that picks up changes in aquatic electric currents, allowing them to stay on course and track prey?
The fourth bike in Easton’s Dream Bike Charity Raffle was built by John Caletti. Caletti is a Californian builder, just like Calfee Design, Rock Lobster Cycles, Black Cat and Hunter Cycles — the other four builders who contributed a handmade frame to the Raffle. Easton is offering each bike to the winner of a sweepstake, the $5 tickets for which can be purchased through their Facebook page.
In a generous move by Easton, 100% of the proceeds from each bike sale will be given to a charity nominated by the builder. John Caletti is already a conscientious manufacturer: he recycles all the paper and packaging materials he can, ships by ground (not air), uses natural light in the workshop, and is also a member of One Percent for the Planet. John’s nominated charity is Shark Savers.
The Caletti Dream Bike is a lightweight 54cm titanium road frame adorned with custom sperm whale and Yellow Submarine graphics to remind us of the importance of the ocean and its inhabitants. It’s built up with a Shimano Dura Ace 9000 groupset and a full suite of Easton’s EC90 components. The wheels are all Easton too: the new EC90 Aero 55 wheelset.
