North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show

Has it really been 2 years since my last blog post? It’s tough, being an introvert. . . I love building, figuring out mechanical solutions, but promoting my work and selling is a whole other thing. . .

NAHBS is great gathering of friendly bicycle builders and components makers. There are a lot of folks like me with small shops building some really interesting and beautiful bicycle things- lots of design and inovation that happens in these small shops shows up in the industry down the line.

I will have a bunch of trailers, stems, and a couple of bicycle for sale at NAHBS in Sacromento this weekend.

It’s also a great social gathering (although quite notably not very diverse) and I always enjoy seeing my friends and fellow builders, talking shop and riding around a city that’s not my own.

I went into debt (to family and friends, financially and communally) to get everything ready for the show: 12 trailers, a mid-gravity cargo bike, a super cool Rando adventure bike (I don’t have time to take and post pictures, I have to pack the van!) half a dozen stems with handlebar bag decaleurs, some graphics. . .

SO, if your going to the show, come buy a bike, or a shirt or a trailer or just come say hello and reassure me that everything is going to be alright.

Doors open tomorrow afternoon, March 15th and the show goes thru Sunday at the Sacramento Convention Center.

Hope to see you there!

Josh
