Calfee Campy EPS Stem Battery Mount 2

This year, Calfee had no offical booth.  However, a couple of gems produced by the California company were on display in the hall.  Most noteably, was this very interesting Campagnolo Super Record EPS equipped bike with a very different looking stem.  After further inspeciton, it would seem this massive bar stem combo is housing the EPS battery (heavily modified).

Hit the jump for more images, plus Calfee’s take on a Garmin mount, oh, and a pretty nice disc brake cross racer.

Hidden might not be the right word.

Holly Cats! On most frames battery placement may not be exactly svelte but jeebs that oversized malformed wart of a battery holder is way, way fugly.

So the battery is “hidden” in the most bulbous and ugly stem/bar combo ever? I guess different strokes for different folks, but I think the campy battery looks better than that godawful creation…

It looks like it could be used as a pillow holder. Rest your head on the stem platform and let the bike shift for you!

That stem’s a veritable planetoid. It’s big enough to have its own weather system.

Who came up with the design for the Garmin mount? West Coast customs? Is the hole underneath the computer an air-intake for a supercharger? 🙂

The one with the Garmin mount has the Di2 battery hidden in the bar, you access the battery thru the barend plug
