In our third and final article from inside the NAHBS we've lined up some very special machines; From the strikingly different Razik Vortex to a modern take on steel with Capitol's Performance C-1RR, a Japanese Maesawa masterpiece and an Italian disc equipped beauty from Palladio.
After already blowing a few people's minds with the three beautiful bikes from our first look at the NAHBS, today we're taking it one step further with 4 very different but equally spectacular machines. A Moots Il Vecchio Patata Titanium, a Casati 80th anniversary edition, Lundbeck XCR Race and for something different - a Shamrock Yngvar’s Cross Racer.
The 2014 edition of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show began on Friday March 14, 2014, at the Charlotte Convention Center, and the excitement for the 10th Anniversary of NAHBS was soon apparent. Exhibitors and visitors began warming up for what promises to be another popular showcase of the best of the vibrant handmade bicycle scene, just as the Carolina sunshine was taking away the previous night’s winter chill.
The North American Handmade Bicycle Show can make a fair claim as the “showcase of the world’s finest bicycles”, and this year's 10th edition held in Charlotte NC, drew more than 150 exhibitors and over 5,000 attendees. Our coverage starts with a close look at three magical machines, Calfee’s Manta Pro, English Road disc EPS & the Mosaic RS-1.
Another very good crowd at this year’s North American Hand Made Bike Show, as frame builders, specialty parts manufacturers and a big gawking public made the trip to a snowy Denver for NAHBS 2013.
