NAHBS 2008, Saturday Feb 9th
Friday brought out a number of bikes for the Urban Velo lens. The running total racks up another 100+ images with this update, now topping 250 pictures and another day of shooting left to go. Read on for more.
Bayliss brought this bike by first thing this morning. Quite the treat. Cut out lugs done right.
BME, straight out of Slovakia. Another take on the carbon truss structure.
Desalvo never fails to bring a nice show bike. Pinstriped rims, powdercoated hubs. He even outlined the track ends.
daVinci is known for their independent pedaling tandems, but shown here is a triple with S+S couplings for easy travel, whether in the car or on the plane.
Ed Litton had some beautiful bikes at the show, namely the blue one here with 1930′s era Campy shift bits. One lever opens the skewer, the other pushed the chain to a given cog as you backpedal. The serrated dropout taken from a bike of the same era keeps the serrated axle aligned as it rolls across during shifts. The original one speed death kiss.
Huffnagel from Portland had this keirin inspired bike under the lights for a session.
Jeff Jones needs little introduction. Amazing ti.
Keith Anderson funny bike. Otherwise known as a pursuit frame.
Marcroft Cycles brought by this personal road racing bike for display. Something about a well used display bike.
Moots snowbike. 165mm spacing front and rear using DT-Swiss downhill rear hubs for interchangeable wheels.
Parlee brought these two carbon bikes by the lights, with the tri-bike disappearing from the front view.
Richard Sachs let me roll this signature road bike over to the lights. Full Campy and the color scheme and craftsmanship you’d expect.
Sycip had some unique bikes on display, namely the brown bike featuring the fixed drivetrain brake. Practical? Maybe not. But an interesting mechanical take on things for sure. Sorry GW, you aren’t the only one on the block with one of these anymore.
True Fabrication. Fake rust? Leather chaingaurd? Wood rack? Yes yes and yes.
Vendetta candy coat. Lots of paint on this one.
Vicious Cycles brought by this road bike with their typical stunning paint finish.
Waterford randoneuring bike. Bring out your inner Frenchman.
