Cloud Nine
John Caletti
Santa Cruz, CA

from the show catalog:
Cloud Nine bicycles are lovingly crafted one ata time by John Caletti in Santa Cruz, California. John's first custom bike was a revelation, deepening his love for riding and growing his passion for bicycles.

After college, John worked at the Wheelsmith bike shop selling custom bikes and doing fittings. He later moved to Santa Cruz and worked as a mechanic, took welding classes and continued his hobby of artistic metalwork.

His dream to build special bicycles continued by learning from several of Northern California's great framebuilders and then starting Cloud Nine in 2004. John is now living his dream: riding and building high-performance road and trail bicycles for avid cyclists.
