North American Hand Made Bicycle Show

Bilenky Townie Bike

Have you seen the talent from the North American Hand Made Bicycle Show? I can only drool on my screen, I did not attend.

My favorites include the Bilenky townie bike, DeSalvo, Old Man Mountain, Retrotec and Rock Lobster.

I used to sell bikes many years ago, and the average buyer wanted something to tool around the neighborhood with. Yeah, their is a need for mtn. bikes and roadies, however a lot of people are really looking for just a bike….Something simple, practical and fun. The modern bicycle industry doesn’t provide such a bike.

Now look at these specialty frame builders representing the NAHMB show. Simple….yes, practical….yes, fun….heck yeah. I love the trend towards utilitarian. Once a person finds that perfect ‘bike’ and tries to run an errand or two they will be elected into the better bike lifestyle.

Thank you independent frame builders.
