NAHBS Recap and Recovery
It takes a lot to get to the show (beyond the extravagant booth fee). I am lucky to have a good group backing (propping) me up. We brought some bikes (more photos coming of the bikes, which are of course still for sale). It was superfun, exhausting, inspiring . . .
In our California MeetYourMakerTour block (that's our industry group) I was pleased to be near good friends. Mitch Pryor was to my right with MAP Bicycles. He does excellent work and makes bikes I'd love to ride. This could be said of a number of builders, but Mitch's work exemplifies the French randoneur style. Matt Feeney shared a back wall with me which we pulled down. I love Matt and his Pass and Stow racks (PassandStow.com)
The photos I took have the edge of the voyeur with an old 135mm e-series lens under distant LED convention center lighting. They are of the framebuilders and their cohort, trying to sell their machines. I didn't photograph any bikes- professionals were there to take care of that, although I'm not sure they did their job.
