Lugged carbon? There's hope yet.

I really wanted to go. I wonder if the economy affected the size of the crowd. Thanks for the link. The bamboo? Just for my fly rods, thank you.

The carbon Kurt linked to is an IF bike. Note the crown worked into the 'lugs'.

If anyone is aware of the economy, these guys are.

For example, DeSalvo offered a pile of frames at unbelievable prices.

It's good to see the culture thrive. Some of the best builders are now in America, not Italy, not that I'd turn down a Pegoretti!

Colnago has been building lugged carbon for years. And it looks better than that.

I went, I feel that It was a let down personally.

As a city, Indy is just not one of my favorite places.

We'll have to talk about that this Summer.

Why were you let down?

I'd have gone if I were in MI.

I don't want to ruin it for anyone else, but it seems to have been more style than substance. Other than Brooks and Velo Orange, Most of the displays were nothing to write home about. Waterford also had a nice display.

I however, am a picky C&V retrogrouch who chaffs at the thought that I paid $20 to see maybe forty bikes. I thought it would take all day, I was there and gone in 40 minutes.


Edit: I'm probably not their target consumer, I'd rather be riding or wrenching.

Just my opinion, but I had never been to one before, I might have had unfounded expectations.

Love the seat tube... oh wait there isn't one. I guess I don't like anything about it.

Lots and lots of great bikes, and it takes time to really see all the details and build choices. There was a stunning track frame built by (I believe) Samson at the Tange booth that was one of my favorites, a neat Ahearne randonneuse with pump peg and pump mounted on the chainstay, and a way-outside-the-box Cherubim time trial frame. I screwed up and didn't bring the download cable for my digital camera. Anyway, everytime I went back to one of the displays, I noticed something new or had an interesting chat with one of the builders. Other really cool displays were October, Bilenky, and Velo Couleur (sp.), which had a restored 1951 Cinelli on display (the same folks used to do the paint for Mike Barry/Maripose before Mike retired.)

Lugs allow custom frame sizing in carbon. Lots of lugged carbon out there.

Old Ten Speed Gallery attended the show and posted some pictures.

http://oldtenspeedgallery.com/

Saturday morning, me and my Old Ten-Speed family put on our Sunday best, loaded up the Family Truckster and headed south on I-65 to the Indianapolis for the 5th annual NAHBS (North American Handmade Bicycle Show). As you all know by now I like my bikes old, crappy, and 10-speeded, and while this is indeed true, it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t see how the other half lives.

Here is one to check out. Go to the link to see the rest.
