NAHBS: Friday photo dump

Brad of Urban Velo is in Portland at the 2008 North American Handmade Bicycle Show with all of his camera gear. Builders are taking their bikes to his ad hoc photo studio so Brad can take lovely portraits of their creations.

This first is Calfee’s latest bamboo creation, in which he’s gone whole hog on the bullhorn theme. Not only are the handlebars real bullhorns, but the fork is also fashioned from horns. Hemp fibers and resin holds the whole thing together.

This custom titanium bicycle from Roark is a children’s bicycle! An internally geared hub inside the machined rear wheel with butterfly accents everywhere make this an extravagant gift for a special daughter.

    …you suggested videos from the show…for my tastes, i'd suggest just good clear photos of bikes & the details that you find impressive about them…
