As it is with every North American Handmade Bicycle Show I attend, I can’t resist falling hard for both the variety of bikes on hand, as well as the variety of bike builders. A sheer, mind altering mash-up of beauty and passion. And as usual, unlike RBA, no other cycling publication in America bothers to give the builders and their creations an inch of press in their pages. But year after year we are there to lend as big a worthwhile spotlight on the one show that is dedicated to the “little guys” as we can.
Here is but just a few of the incredible bikes that we featured in the June issue of Road Bike Action. And as always, none of this would be possible without the dedication and boundless enthusiasm of RBA’s own master blaster photographer John Ker. Oh yeah, the June issue is also chock-full with loads of other good stuff to read – pick one up at the newsstand or subscribe to RBA.
Next years show will be held in Salt Lake City on March 1…if you love bikes, I urge you to attend – you will not forget it.
