North American Handbuilt Bike Show recap

I Made it thru the show. It was super fun, surrounded by supportive friends new and old. I felt pretty good about the display and the goods for sale. I am even excited to take the booth around to other local bike events in the coming season, so I’ll see you out there!

Thanks to Donna Norstadt of Paragon Machine Works for taking this photo. Paragon is an indispensible part of the California Framebuilding biome and provide parts to builders worldwide and they are wonderful people. That’s Matt setting up his Pass&Stow Booth in the background- He makes the highest quality racks in Oakland. Another sweetheart and dear friend.

Saturday night paid off with the “TrackloCross” event along the sandy shores Sacramento River (track bike cross racing). People, Pabst and bikes. Thanks to Squid Bikes for that.

This is the best photo I got. I look forward to a tracklocross race in our town sometime soon. (Meow?)
