Pictures from the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show

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.

Tony Pereira built this sweet little mixte with the Shimano Alfine hub and disc brakes. What a fantastic bike for wet Oregon winters.














This is Tony Pereira's new logo.



Tony built this for himself as sort of an idealized Klunkerz.

Here's an Ira Ryan Porteur.



Bike Friday was there.










The Center for Appropriate Transport showed off their answer to the Bakfiets - 100% Made in the USA.








They have acquired the pattern and rights to the old Burley booties people loved so well.

So I'm not much of a rider of road bike frames, but I took lots of pictures for you all.

There were lots of mountain bikes. I tried to take pictures of the ones that seemed especially beautiful to me. Whether or not they do what you need them to do, I could not say.

Daedalus Custom Bamboo Bikes was there and had 2 beauties to show. The lugs are wrapped carbon. The builder says the weight is similar to titanium frames. I was amazed.

Even though I don't ride road bikes, I spent a while at the Sweetpea Bicycles booth. Natalie Ramsland builds them and her husband Austin spent a lot of time telling me all about them and the need for more WSD bikes. Austin told me this story about how his mother nearly threw an ill-fitting bike through a shop window in disgust. It seemed like this really stuck in his head and certainly explains his passion for WSD.








These are S&S couplers so you can dismantle your bike for easier transport. Apparently, S&S is a maker of medical machinery and they produce these couplers just for the fun of it.






Austin encouraged me to get pictures of this frame, as he feels the lugs and the wishbone seatstay are really special.

This last Sweetpea has something of a romantic story attached to it. Natalie built this bike for a woman who is now married to bike fitter Michael Sylvester who founded the Serotta Fit Program. Michael has taught Natalie about bike fitting for her builds and he has done fittings for many Sweetpea owners, including owner of this particular bike. It must have been a memorable fitting because it resulted in their marriage a year later.

One of the nicest things about the show was that a place was made for our local builders of Alt bikes. There were some really interesting bikes shown by the Zoobombers and the Dropout Bicycle Club. I started a thread in Alt Bikes, if you're interested in those pictures.

Combine the design of the racks in the 2nd to 5th pictures and I would buy a couple of those.

Something for people to think about maybe going to in February.

Nice pics but one thing I don't understand. You want to attract the judges to your bike so you tape a pumpkin and an old rusty can to the bike rack (picture 2)???

Thanks Donna. Awesome pics.

I have a friend who owns a Land Shark. Awesome bike and paint scheme.

I recently saw a write-up (in Bicycling??) about bamboo bikes. What did you think of the ones you saw? I'm really intrigued by the idea. Did they say anything about a limit on the rider's weight?

I think that "rusty can" was a U lock.

Donna, thank you for sharing the pics!! I had for a short time considered a SweetPea but I really had never heard too much of them so I got a little hesitant and backed out.

I missed the show they had here last year. My nephew had come over from Colorado to visit and we were planning on going but I couldn't get the day off. Maybe next time.
