North American Handmade Bicycle Show 27-27th Feb, Austin Texas

Richard Sachs views his work

NAHBS showcases the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle. It aims to be a meeting point for both frame builders and consumers looking for handmade custom bicycles, for the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of a special industry with a rich history dating back to 1819. One of the key features of NAHBS is bringing the frame builders together at social events outside show hours. This has been a feature of the show since its first year in 2005. Entering its seventh iteration, NAHBS has grown from a show with 23 exhibitors and 700 attendees in '05, to 165 exhibitors and 7200 attendees.
