I went to the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show today and had a great time. There were lovely, dream bikes of all varieties and it was interesting to meet the builders. So here are some pictures. Caveat: I'm not a very good photographer and it also didn't help that the place was packed with people. I know there will be far better pictures on BikePortland in the next day or so, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy these. I tried to get a variety of bikes - not just the ones I love the most.
I'm sure it will come as no surprise to any of you who know me that I took lots of pitcures of bikes made for city/utility riding. I think my two favorite were Joseph Ahearne and Tony Pereira. They're doing some fantastic work.
Joseph Ahearne makes beautiful yet practical racks with slots for one's U-lock. He's also working on a bike with a Rohloff hub.
Many of you may already know of Ahearne for this:
The Rohloff hub and dropout.
