North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) runs from March 17-19 in Sacramento, California. The event celebrates the best in craftsmanship and creativity in the world of frame building and bicycle design.
As always, there’s a solid Canadian presence at the show, which returns to California for 2019. Canada’s builders have had an outsized impact at the show in the past, winning the prestigious Best in Show prize on multiple occasions along a long list of category and sponsor awards. Last year, East Coast builder Altruiste took home the top honour as well as best mountain bike. In 2016, Vancouver, B.C’s Dekerf Cycle Innovations won the Best Artisan Award.
Here’s all the news from before, during and after the 2019 show in Sacramento.
