Caterham Cycling is set to launch its range of Duo Cali bicycles in 2015, first previewed at the Eurobike show earlier this year.
Caterham will exhibit eight models at February’s London Bike Show, saying on its Caterham Cycling website that all the bikes will combine ‘British heritage, Italian passion and German engineering’.

The bikes are to be made in Germany by the same company that makes Ax-Lightness models. Caterham Composites says that the frames will use sportive geometry, be designed with an aerodynamic front-to-rear monocoque construction, boast low weight and have ‘high-standard’ stiffness figures.
A steel-framed bike, the Fairspear, is in its catalogue as well, saying that it will be “linked to the heritage of the iconic Super 7 racing car”.
Caterham unveiled its Duo Cali carbon-fibre models at the Eurobike show in August. Those models were equipped with Campagnolo groupsets and named Duo Cali Record, Duo Cali Chorus, a flat-barred Duo Cali Urban EPS and high-spec Limited Edition model. The latter model will apparently only have a production run of 73 bikes and is rumoured to be priced around the £12,500 mark.
If you need any more reason to head to the capital for the bike show then this should do it. We can’t wait.
