The North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2019 begins noon Friday at the Sacramento Convention Center, where several vendors from Santa Cruz will appear to showcase their craft.
Bike builders from Santa Cruz County include perennial favorites Caletti Cycles, Black Cat Cycles, Rock Lobster, Frances Cycles, Calfee Design, and Hunter Cycles.
Praxis Works, which designs drivetrain components, will also be at the show. Santa Cruz Bicycles will be on hand to show their Reserve Carbon Wheels.
Don Walker of NAHBS says ticket pre-sales have hit record numbers. The last time NAHBS was in Sacramento, the show was inundated with cycling enthusiasts flocking from all over Northern California and Nevada. If you show up on Saturday or Sunday, expect lines for ticket sales to wrap around the block, so buy your tickets now.
