The North American Handmade Bicycle Show took place over the weekend, and there is no shortage of coverage around the web. As usual, Urban Velo has one of the best photo galleries from NAHBS, with nice side view profiles and detail shots of many of the bikes. There is also good show coverage at CyclingNews, Bike Rumor, and the Denver Post (for a local perspective on the event). For an adventure bike oriented report, be sure to see this post at Cyclelicious as well. As you can see from the various posts and photo galleries, there seems to be a greater variety of bicycle types at the show each year. All kinds of different frame materials and processes seemed to have been used this year as well, like this bamboo/titanium town bike and an interesting wooden 29er.
The Best Theme Bike and People’s Choice Award went to Butch Boucher, Nate Bradley & Eric Hines of Moots for the Moots/IMBA Trail Maintenance bike (perfectly accessorized with a chainsaw and beer).
Shiko Matsuda was able to take two awards back home to Japan, the President’s Choice Award and the Best Track Bike Award for his Level Keirin Racer.
Those are just a few of the awards though, so be sure to see the NAHBS website for more. Also check out the photo galleries mentioned above, and feel free to share any others you have discovered in the comments. There definitely seemed to be something for everybody in the variety of bikes shown this year. I would be curious to hear which one is your personal favorite.
