For some reason, last year I went to the NAHBS in Richmond, VA (great show gents, great show), and never posted my pics. So, here, for your viewing pleasures, are some pictures from last year’s show to get you pumped and primed for this year’s show in Austin. For those of you going, have a good time. From what I understand (I’ve never been there), Austin is the epicenter of good riding, good beer, good Tex Mex, great music, and tons of other great shit. File a report when you get back if you’re going, I for one, would like to hear about it. With that being said, pictures are below:
That’s all that I have from last year’s show, well, not true, I have more, but these are the best pics that I got. The thing I saw the most was the trend maybe towards more lugs, more artwork in the lugs, but not at the sacrifice of performance of the frames and bikes themselves. The stuff there looked awesome, and the thing I came away with was that handbuilt bikes in the US are still going (as well as around the world), and the people building these rides are passionate about what they do. You could tell, even after being there for several days, they still had some sparkle in their eyes when talking about bikes, and building bikes.
Again, someone gets there this year, drop a line, tell us how it was. If anyone from the DC family is going, then all that much better.by
