The North American Handmade Bicycle Show

Yesterday morning hundreds of bicycle mechanics and cycling enthusiasts loading up their gear, their bicycles and drove upteen hundred miles to Sacramento, California for the 2012 North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

NAHBS is the annual event showcasing America's and Canada's growing handmade bike industry. Hundreds of companies will be there to exhibit and to display what is new in the world of bicycle manufacturing.

One such contributor is Ryan King, a mechanic at Weir's Cyclery in St. Johns, Oregon. King and other bicycle mechanics / cyclists will be exploring the aisles of the Sacramento Convention Center with their jaw dropped and their eyes gleaming as they check out handmade products and bikes that redefine the business of cycling.

Handmade bicycles aren't for everyone. Most people prefer to just buy a bicycle off the shelf at their local bike shop, so it is really only the heavy duty enthusiasts who buy the kind of weird bicycles you would find at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

Check out the following photos of some of the weird and interesting bikes from previous shows:

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.
