The 2018 North American Handmade Bicycle Show is up and running here in Hartford, Connecticut. The bikes have all been polished, the judges are judging, and over-sized Jenga is going down at the Dirt Rag booth. Day 1 was a busy one for sure; trying to take in all the booths, catch up with some old friends and keep from drooling on all of the magnificent bikes was a little exhausting. There was so much to see today that I look forward to tomorrow knowing that we weren’t able to get a good look at all of the bikes on display. From legends like Independent Fabrications and Moots to the fresh faces like Adam Sklar and Stinner Bikes, there was enough eye candy to have you looking for a fourth or fifth side job so you could order a couple new frames for yourself. Here’s just a glimpse of some of our favorite bikes and people from the day. If you are coming to the show this weekend be sure to stop by and see us, play some jenga, grab a mag and say hi.
