NAHBS 2009 Studio Outtakes
At left we have Jason Montano of Broakland living his dream with the wind in his hair. The other photographer shown is of Pedal Speed magazine, in from Tokyo to share the North American show with the huge Japanese-language cycling audience.
The Bilenky crew apparently saw a low flying plane in the unoccupied “other side” of the tradeshow floor space.
Don Walker loves his bicycles, hugging each before their star shot.
The vast majority of the builders wear their love of bicycles on their sleeve, some just take it a bit farther and really get excited about each and every one of their creations. In order, Curtis Inglis of Retrotec, Jordan Hufnagel, Marty Walsh of Geekhouse.
The Indianapolis freebie newsweekly featured Don Walker in a menacing “warrior” post, biting the top tube of a bike in his shop. Marty took notice, as did Sacha White of Vanilla.
Richard Sachs helped keep his bikes upright with his eyes, but also gave some reassurance that I wouldn’t drop one of his pristine bicycles. With the help of the builders, a few excellent volunteers and a very high tech combination of binder clips and a broken section of aluminum tubing not one bike was dropped on my watch.
