NAHBS 2012 Sacramento Image Dump 1

It is the time of year for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, this year being held in Sacramento CA. Always a great show filled with builders and attendees all seriously hooked on bikes. We’re out here yet again running around shooting the best of the best bikes in the world, this time with a mobile setup more suited to shooting on the show floor, on the loading dock, and wheverever else strikes my fancy.

See below for a gallery with images from Peacock Groove, Broakland, Ventus Custom Cycles, Raphael Cycles, Bishop, Igleheart, Rock Lobster, Don Walker, Ellis, Yipsan, Anderson, Ahearne, Winter, English, Independent Fabrication, Panda, Soulcraft, Majaco, Speedhound and Ira Ryan.

Have a question about a particular bike you see here? Ask in the comments.

    Those track dropouts are long. The wheel is not falling out. There is still a bit of dropout showing behind the nut/washer combo. No worries with it like that.

    No rule or benefit about where the wheel sits as long as the axle washers are fully engaged on the dropout face. This bike has a range of cogs, at this time using the smallest so the wheel is farther back.

    I thought the whole idea was the closer the wheel is to the frame the faster the acceleration? The bike looks good either way.
