    I'd love to go, but I wouldn't allow myself to buy any of those gems. So I'll drool over photos on the web.

    I'm considering a trip down but, since I was away last weekend, I'm not sure it's gonna work out. Can't say I've ever been to Charlotte.

    I would go again to Austin.

    I have a bike at my parents' house and the riding in the Texas Hill country is so tough to beat.

    Love the culture in Austin as well.

    I've found at least six bbq joints between my folks' house and Austin that are top shelf.

    My boys like to go and visit just to eat.

    It gets a little spendy with those two along. They are getting big.

    Didn't mean to hi-jack the thread with a que discussion.

    In any case, the good news is that I'll be there tomorrow. I'll be rolling in tonight, hanging out tomorrow and driving home in the late afternoon of early evening.

    Online registration is closed, and I can't find one day admission prices anywhere. Anyone know what Sat. or Sun. attendee tickets cost?
    Cheers,

    The Charlotte Observer website says $22. A seminar pass is $150.

    I thought it'd be a bit more reasonable than that. I guess in the bigger scheme of things it's not that bad really.

    Thanks. It might be worth $22 and a three hour drive to see this paint job => Groovy Cycleworks 330-988-0537: Greg's Bigwheel in Brook Trout motif...

    I'll miss it this year, but have attended most years. It's definitely worth the $22 to gawk at all of the eye candy and chat with some of the finest builders in the world. Most are very friendly and approachable.

    Two basic themes of this show: fat tire bikes and single speeds. I saw a lot of them.

    Got to meet Paul Brodie. He had an incredible 1890s british bike there, its a must see. It was a tall bike, meant so the rider could peer over the tall hedges in England.

    Another incredible bike was a custom polished, made in Japan, Cherubin.

    A lot of interesting fabrication work, integrated racks, bamboo/aluminum bikes, and more. Way too much to list. Easier to post on Facebook, so I will post a bunch there.

    I went and took my wife. I was very impressed and my wife loved it. There must have been 5-600 bikes there plus a lot of the big company reps for suplies. I talked to the Panasonic Japanese rep. He was amazed at the number of there 27" tires I had bought. Rebecca really likes the big tire bikes. Next was the wood bikes and this huge monster for two. I held on to my wallet very tight.

    My friend and his wife went to NAHBS and all I got were these two cell phone photos.

    Interesting black walnut framed tandem.
