I heard a little blurb on the radio about the North American Handmade Bike Show at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, so, Debbie was game for the drive and off we went!
We really have become a couple of small town rubes.....we went around a few blocks looking for parking and then while walking over a few blocks we caught each other doing some rubber-necking at the tall buildings, both of us wondering why people live way up there???
Anyway, Her are some pictures of bikes that I thought were cool. What am I saying......everybike there was cool in it's own way. If you ever wonder about the direction the design and technology of bike world is going attend one of these shows. People out there are very creative and excited about the work they are doing!
There were many bikes with Gates belt drive systems and Roloff style gearing.
All in all a great way to spend a day and even worth the drive to Denver! Fat tire bikes are really the buzz and driving the market for future bike sales according to many of the guys I talked with. Debbie spent the most time in the Brompton booth talking up folding bikes. Maybe she'll just get interested!!!
My personal favorite??? There was a beautiful touring bike there by Littlefield bikes that I got so interested in I forgot to take a picture!
Spring is coming people!!
