About Us

I'm John Caletti and I handcraft custom bicycles in Santa Cruz, California. I truly enjoy the challenge, reward, and process of building bicycles. I've been a rider since I was a kid, the passion just got deeper as I've gone along. My own first custom bike was a revelation - it fit better, it worked better, I had more fun. I loved working with my hands, creating, especially projects that involved welding and machining. When I discovered handmade, custom bicycles, a seed was planted. It took a number of years before diving in - working in bike shops, sales, fittings, and then a lot of wrenching, along with welding courses and eventually learning to build bikes. In 2004 I got going, and it's been a challenging, rewarding and fun ride. I love what I do, I continue to be engaged and excited about creating unique bicycles for passionate riders.

I take building bikes seriously, and I take the way I run my business and the impact it has on the environment seriously as well. Beyond making bikes that inspire people to ride more and drive less, I look for other ways to reduce the impact of my bike making business. I recycle paper, plastic, cardboard, metal cut-offs and scraps, reuse packing material, ship by ground (not air), use natural light in the workshop, and produce durable and recyclable bike frames. In addition Caletti Cycles is a member of 1% for the Planet - donating 1% of sales to groups working to preserve and protect our environment.
