Gallery: 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show
For those who are #notatnahbs here’s a look at what’s gracing the showroom floor at this year’s North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Denver, Colorado.
Frame builder's legos. Nice ones. Also called lugs.
This tandem obviously took a literal interpretation of the adage, ''Follow your nose.''
Argonaut is treading the intersection of custom carbon and high-tech, and we like the results.
Tony Pereira and Ira Ryan joined forces to create Breadwinner, a lineup of six semi-custom models. Pictured here is the Aufderheide loaded tourer, named after a famous ride in Oregon.
It's true, your mom probably would like NAHBS-founder Don Walker's bikes.
Tanner Goods technically made their NAHBS debt last year with some custom pieces featured on Ira Ryan's Market Bike, but this year saw them with a dedicated cycling line featuring domestically sourced leather, waxed canvas, and panache.
Caletti cycles shows that there really is no end to the applications of carbon fiber.
Who said stationary bikes were immune to the NAHBS treatment?
English Cycles can always be counted on for a few radical designs, and this disc-brake equipped road bike is one of them. It features some pretty minimalist tubing, but that's only half the story.

Andy Hamptsten's giro-winning ''Huffy'' was on display at the Hampsten Cycles booth.
Custom-carbon wizards, Alchemy take the award for most subtle logo.
Oodles of titanium and carbon meant speed was in no short supply at the Mosaic Cycles display.
Independent fabrications always commands a longer-than-average stop, but their new Gravel Royale had us groveling for far too long..
Disc brakes—so hot right now.
Judging is an ever-constant (and never easy) process throughout the whole duration of the show.
