Since the 2020 North American Handmade Bicycle Show was cancelled, we're taking a look back at the bikes that stole the show in 2019.
In March 2019, hundreds of handbuilt bicycle fans descended on Sacramento, California. The North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show (NAHBS) celebrated its 15th year by bringing more than 210 international and American independent bicycle exhibitors (bikes, frames, parts, paint, accessories and more) to the west coast. You won’t see bikes from the big brand names that are easily recognized at your local bike shop — these are the works of individual and small groups of makers who view bicycles as functional art. Their work was on full display, and NAHBS’s panel of judges took on the difficult job of determining the show’s best in a series of categories. Here are the 18 that rose to the top.
