NAHBS 2014 (North American Hand-Built Bicycle Show)

For those of you that don't geek out over bikes like I do, you'd be surprised to know that there is an annual show where all of the best bike builders come to show off their newest and raddest bikes. It is usually out West somewhere or at least far away. I was lucky enough to attend the Austin show a few years back. The story goes that my business trip happened to coincide with the show. Its remotely possible that my friend Bill & I came up with a business trip to make that convenient. Remotely possible. Anyway, this year's NAHBS was in Charlotte, NC. I live in Greenville, SC now. That's 2 hours away.


Jenny, I know what you're thinking. No, I did not find the Sunex Tools job and move us to Greenville to make it easier to go to the NAHBS Charlotte show. Admittedly, that's only because I didn't think of it. Better to be lucky than good.

Anyway, the show was great. There were a lot of fat bikes... a lot. There were some really sexy cross bikes. I literally backed into Tom Ritchey. Bike people are the nicest lot of folks you'll bump into. Here are the photos.


  1. Beautiful photos, Don. Glad to hear you got to go again.

  2. Thanks, Sam. Lucky that it was less than two hours from my doorstep.
