Sacramento gives NAHBS its biggest year ever

Nice wrap-up of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in the Bike World News. The site is reporting that the show had the best attendance ever with more than 8,000 people showing up for the three-day event. And, congrats to local bike builder Steve Rex (his booth is in the photograph) for winning “Best Road Bike” at the show. You can view the story here.
Also, there’s an interesting article by Jerry Hirsch in The Bellingham Herald about the bike show and the growth of cycling businesses even in the bad economy. Hirsch writes, “Though the entire industry probably doesn’t have much more of an economic effect than a couple of Target stores, one indicator of its popularity is that colleges and universities are starting to teach frame building.”
