NAHBS 2008, Friday Feb 8th – 1
Handmade Show 2008, Friday. 45 more pictures to share.
Ahearne has this city bike on display. Stem mounted shifter, custom rack, elegant lugs.
Arantix has created this machine from a carbon/kevlar weave. Strong, light, expensive with the 300+ hours of work per frame. Any sort of damage is limited to the given short length damaged, up to the next joint preventing the propagation of any failure.
Bilenky, from Pennsylvania. Real-deal city and touring bicycles, from folks that love them.
Black Cat bike and their unique pivoting dropout for chain tensioning duties. Nice lines on the seattube as well.
Castellano and the Silk Ti. Years of riding show that the design works, all without a pivot and now with 29″ wheels.
Cloud 9 had this road bike on display and under the lights.
Donkelope tandem. Internal gears, Profile cranks.
Engin 29″ mountain touring bicycle. Another PA builder.
Goodtimes ‘cross with a lime paintjob.
Groundup designs some of the most interesting looking bikes made for competition out there from the Colorado Springs HQ. Racing is what its all about with these two.
Look out for part two of Friday’s photography as this installment needs cut short, as its now 1am here in Portland and time for some rest.
