KUSA - If the words frame, crank, shifter, and gears are part of your daily vocabulary, then you need to be at the 9th annual North American Handmade Bike Show at the Colorado Convention Center this weekend. If those words aren't used daily, they will be by the time you leave this mecca of bike building.
2013 marks the first time the show has come to Denver and 40 of the 200 vendors are from Colorado. The North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) has become the world's number one handmade bicycles show. In addition to many US frame builders, exhibitors from countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, and The Netherlands have helped the show become what it is today.
Since 2005, NAHBS has showcased the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle. It continues to be a meeting point-online and in person-for frame builders and cycling enthusiasts, for the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of a special industry with a rich history dating back to 1819.
Unlike most trade show, this is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Hours are 11am-6pm on Friday; 10-6 on Saturday; 10-5 on Sunday.
