2011 North American Hand Made Bicycle Show Feb 25-27th – Road Trip!
Feb 24th update, we’re leaving in the morning (Friday). There is a Facebook page (Dallas goes to NAHBS) for Dallas folks to use to connect while we’re there. Check it out here
Austin, Texas will be the site of the 2011 North American Hand Made Bicycle Show this February 25th-27th. The show will feature 150 exhibitors from 20 states and four continents showcasing their mad, custom bike making skillz.
Well hell yes we’re going to crash it.
They’re expecting over 7,000 attendees this year and Hubbard, Justin and I plan to attend so make that 7,003. We’ll be blogging from the event and we plan to photograph and video as much of it as we can. We’re already engaging in arguments negotiations over what day we’ll arrive and when we’ll return. This should be good. The official party is Friday night so smart money says we’ll arrive on Friday. I’m hunting for the after hours party details as well as what’s going on that Saturday night…
NAHBS was founded in 2005 where they had 23 exhibitors and 700 attendees in Houston, Texas. In 2010 they met in Richmond, Virginia where 126 exhibitors were met by 6,000 attendees. NAHBS has evolved into the premier event for custom bicycle makers and those who love them. In addition to being able to meet bike makers and see their work, there will also be a variety of seminars for those who want to learn more about building bikes.
