It’s back! Who needs that big craft bicycle building event, bringing the nation’s greatest frame makers together- National Handbuilt Show (NAHBS)
We’ve got our own here in NYC.
August 16th and 17th, 2014
Bike Cult Show
2nd Annual Hand-Built Bicycle Show in NYC
Be part of the Bike Cult!!
from the website:
Please join the Bike Cult this August 16-17th at the Knockdown Center to see the ultimate expression of the joy that cycling brings, as translated through the hands of artisans working in Steel, Carbon Fiber, Wood, Titanium and Aluminum. Exhibitors will range from traditionalists to those who look to completely re-consider the notion of pedal power; but they will all adhere to the principle that what they produce is beautiful, useful and at the cutting edge of excellence in fabrication and design.
When it comes to the luxury version of common utilitarian objects, anachronisms are usually the norm when it comes to the ultimate form. Well heeled pen collectors collect fountain pens, while watch aficionados go gaga for manual wind up watches, long consigned to the obsolete bin by the majority of the timekeeping industry. The same goes for bicycles: a utilitarian tool that is used daily around the world is transformed from the mundane into the sublime by the hand of the maker.
