NAHBS Inspiration

This morning before the masses descended upon the Shimano North American Handmade Bicycle Show, I caught up with several inspiring and inspired frame designers / builders cum change agents. I’ll post the interviews as soon as I can get them transcribed, likely this evening. Ed Ip is already working on a photo dump. For now, here are the names so you know what to look forward to:

Steve Bilenky of Bilenky Cycle Works
Mike Flanigan of Alternative Needs Transportation (ANT)
John Fabel of Sylvan
Ahren Rogers of Banjo Cycles
Renold Yip of Yipsan
Nate Meschke & Matt Cardinal of Signal Cycles
Marty Walsh of Geekhouse Bikes

Ed & I are hangin at Perly’s (111 E. Grace btwn 1st & 2nd Streets) anticipating 2 big breakfast plates. Afterwards, we will head back for another hour on the show floor to take some portraits of exhibitors and attendees. Facial hair will figure prominently!
