Handmade bike show

The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is sheduled for February 8-10 in Portland, Oregon, USA. The show is full of beautifully hand-crafted frames and custom made parts. Most of which are classic (oldstyle) designs made of steel with lugged tubes and hand-painted livery. Like this frame being made on a jig by legendary frame maker Richard Sachs.

There are some modern, even out of this world, designs. Here's Brent Ruegamer's blackbird concept bike from last years show.

If you think your bike is light at 8-9kg, how about this 3kg offering from Nick Crumpton? Hey! That looks like my fixie :)
