I’m about out of gas after a busy evening taking care of a few things before we head back out for another out-of-town weekend. However, before heading off I figured I’d share a few photos from the show. It’s a rather eclectic collection of interesting bikes that caught my attention, noting that there are a disproportionate number of tandem photos here. To be honest, I could have taken hundreds of photos because just about every bicycle at the NAHBS was pure eye candy in one way or another.
If you need a major NAHBS fix, let me suggest visiting their YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/HandmadeBikeShow/videos
As far as the best coverage of NAHBS, check out Tyler Benedict’s BikeRumor.com. He’s got everything covered and then some.
If you look closely you’ll quickly realize this Abbott Cycles creation is a she.
The view of “Signorina” from an oblique angle is a bit more revealing of the female form.
A really innovative collection of design & engineering concepts can be found in Green Pea’s Shimano-powered, electric mid-drive. It was the steering arrangement that blew me away.
The Best New Builder creation from Chad Lovings and Bryce Baumann’s dba. LoveBaum. This is one of those bikes that you have to see in person to appreciate.
The adorable Julie Ann Pedalino and her 3rd handbuilt frame. This one is her personal bike and it was spectacular; very reminiscent of Debbie’s also very petit Ritchey Logic Pro custom which also used very small diameter, lightweight tubing.
A very intriguing composite design concept.
Imagine if you will, the Buddy/Love bike mating with a Green Gear Bike Friday tandem and here’s what you’d get! Actually, there was a lot of thought that went into the design. An interesting design to be sure.
Silent’s very cool cargo bike
The Kentucky Wheelmen had an interesting collection of antique bicycles on display. Seeing them along side some of the cutting edge from current builders was very cool.
Peacock Groove had an interesting assortment of fat-tire bikes, an electric bike modeled after a old motorcycle and out of camera view was an off-road tandem sporting a Ventana rear suspension.
