13 Great Bicycles from the NAHBS Award Winners

The judges’ picks.


Over the weekend, hundreds of handbuilt bicycle fans descended on the Salt Palace in Utah’s capital city. The North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show (NAHBS) celebrated its 13th year with 180+ international and American independent bicycle exhibitors (bikes, frames, parts, paint, accessories and more). As the show specifies, “NAHBS showcases the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle.” The rolling art was on full display, and the judges had the difficult job of determining the show’s best in a series of categories. Among the many winners, these were our favorites.
