The North American Handmade Bicycle Show travels to Sacramento, California this year. It's the show's 15th anniversary, and boasts the largest turnout of exhibitors on record. The vibe is upbeat and there are a number of new faces in the aisles, some of whom are sure to raise the bar for the two dozen mind-blowers who consistently sweep the NAHBS award ceremonies. Some joke that NAHBS is an acronym for the North American Hardtail Builders Show. True that... but dual-suspension machines seem to be sprouting everywhere between the bumper crop of gravel-grinders and mountain hardtails that have dominated the expo for three years running. But who cares? NAHBS is cycling debauchery at its highest expression.
