So I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with my first time visiting the "North American Handmade Bicycle Show" (NAHBS). There was an incredible collection of not only bicycles but small (and large) clothing companies, wheels, components and who knows how many other bicycle related companies there. One of things that most impressed me was how open and helpful most people were to not only talking about their individual products but also their process in developing them.
There were a couple of standouts that were amazing to talk with. Both "Anderson Custom Bicycles" as well as "Cycle Design USA" both gave me some great advice on working with Stainless Steel. SSSink was amazingly informative about the many different types of decals that are out there. Lora Van Dixhorn really informed me on what kind of idiot I am (my words, not hers) for not having insurance yet. And John from Landshark really showed me why I am not really using my dynafile to even ten percent of its full potential.
All in all, it was a great show with some great seminars that was defintely worth the trip!
Here is a dump on flickr of all of the pictures I took in no particular order, other than that of the random path I took throughout the hall.
