Default Caloi - Do they fail?

I seem to recall hearing that even though Caloi is supposed to be
Motorola's supplier, they just stuck Caloi decals on Merckx frames. I'm
not sure that _all_ of Caloi's road frames are Merckx-made, though...

This type of "stick our sponsor's decal on that other manufacturers
bike" kind of stuff seems to be becoming more common these days.
Wassupwitdat? Are we going to start seeing Huffys in the peloton again?



Caloi neither makes nor sells any road frames. They sponser the
motorola team for advertizement purposes. Motorola rides Merckx and
litespeed (which manufactures Merckx Ti frames BTW). Caloi only makes
MTB's, a few hybrids, and cruisers. (unless they're hiding something from
me- I'm a Caloi dealer).

It is interesting that they don't make road bikes since one is sitting in my garage. It is a Caloi 7000 series Pro Road all aluminum frame. My wife found it in a thrift store. I am about to re-donate it because no one ever rides it. I searched the name on a search engine to find out if it had any value and stumbled upon this discussion.

Thing is the bike you describe wasn't made for 5 years after the original post to which you replied.
I have a caloi 2001, 7000 series all aluminum road bike as well, thrift store also and was searching for a price as well. Lol
Rides nice.
