NAHBS 2010 Day 1 Wrap Up

It has been a long day but wouldn’t trade it for the world.  The NAHBS is an eye opener to what these true artists disguised as bike builders can do with traditional materials such as steel, aluminum, carbon and some not so traditional such as wood and bamboo.  But before I get some shut eye, I leave you with a few of my favorite images of the day.

Stretch your legs in RVA

Are you looking to ride your bike this weekend while in town for the NAHBS? The Richmond Area Bicycling Association (RABA) provide area cyclists multiple ride options every day of the week.   Please contact the designated ride leader(s) if you have any questions.

If you are looking to unleash some pent-up fiery amassed over the winter, Team Nature’s Path/3Sports Cyclinb Club is hosting a criterium at the Richmond International Raceway (RIR). RIR has a 3/4 mile smooth fast D shaped track and is home to two NASCAR races every year.  Preregistration will close this evening (2/24) at 9pm EST.

Coverage for NAHBS 2010

Hello to you, the readers of Cyclelicious.   My name is Ed Ip and I’m new to the Cyclelicious team.  A bit about me, I’m a software developer by day, and a cyclist and photographer by night.  I dream (i.e. drool) of shiny — usually expensive – objects that promise to make me a better/faster person.  My evaluation process usually takes me down the path of want instead of need, and it goes something like this… “Do I need a new bike?  No, but I want it because will make me faster.  Do I need a TT helmet?  No, but I will definitely be better looking because of it!”

Enough about me.  Let’s talk about what I will be doing for you…

My first order of business is to bring you the highlights of the 2010 Shimano North American Handmade Bicycle Show this weekend.  I will be trolling the show floor with my camera looking for shiny bits that I think you and I will want.  Bike porn anyone?

If you are attending this annual event, send me a direct tweet @e_ip so I can buy you a free beer!  If not, leave a comment below if there is something in particular you like to see.  I will try my best to bring home the photographic goods!
