Since its first show in 2005, the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) has become established as the world's number one handmade bicycles exhibit. Held in Sacramento for its 8th show, this year's exhibit will include showrooms with beautiful bikes from all over the world, master frame building classes and seminars, and the annual awards presentation. Tickets are free for volunteers who donate four hours of their time or more. Check the website for more information.
In addition to many US frame builders, exhibitors from all over the world have helped to make NAHBS what it is today. The NAHBS is dedicated to showcasing the talents of individuals whose art form is the bicycle. It continues to aim to be a meeting point for frame builders and cycling enthusiasts, for the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of a special industry with a rich history dating back to 1819.
