Photo Blog: 2014 North American Handmade Bicycle Show

The 10th rendition of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) was held in Charlotte, NC last weekend, and if you live in the Southeast and didn’t go… you seriously missed out.  NAHBS brings many of the best frame builders in the country together, and the amount of bike porn and master fabrication skills on display can’t be found anywhere else in the bike industry.  Best of all, you can chat with the guys and gals behind the companies.  You can meet the man or woman who actually builds the bikes with their own hands–where else can you do that?  Next year, NAHBS will be held in Louisville, KY.

This blog post isn’t meant to be a comprehensive coverage of the show. I was only able to spend a day there, and I know I missed a lot, and didn’t have time to talk with nearly as many people as I had hoped.  Consider this just a taste of what the hand built bicycle world has to offer.  If you want to learn more, stay tuned, as we’ll be starting a monthly builder showcase in the next few weeks which will take an in-depth look at many of the best custom MTB builders around.
