NAHBS 2012 – We’re Back

by on | 0 comments

Thank you Sacramento, we had great time at the NAHBS show and enjoyed exploring downtown.  Thanks also to all who stopped by our booth it was great to catch up with some of our customers in person and also meet those new customers that are interested in our frames.   We took three bikes: a fat tire road bike, and two cross bikes, one stainless and another that was fillet brazed which were all well received. We had a good time each night hanging out with Don and the guys at Anvil, the Kirklee boys, Jeremy from Gallus, Eric from Edoz, and Jon from Airdale paint.  Thanks also to Aaron at Whiskey and Joe at KVA, for there help with forks and tubes for our frames.  We look forward to Denver in 2013. Here is a photo of our booth:

We also should be on MTBR with a video interview soon.

This week it is shop clean up from the last minute packing for the show and then back to working on the build queue which is slowly growing =)

 

Getting ready for NAHBS

Well the last few stems and fork will make there way to the painter this week and now we are on to ordering parts for those bike and working on our booth for the show.  This year we will just be taking three bikes to the show and although they will be very similar in the style of bike, if you look at the details once each of them you can some of our traditional building skills and a few new ones that we are exploring. I will post some pics when we get them back from the painter, but here is a few hints:  fillet-brazed, stainless, and some new curves!! =)

Here is a shot of the last stem I was welding up for one of the NAHBS bikes:
