There’s a chance a contingent of us will come down from Boston on Saturday, but that’s also the start of Feb school vacation week, so we might be headed up to ski country.

I've been to only 3. And regretted not taking more pics after each.

Looks like I'll be going to NAHBS on Friday as we're leaving later that evening for a long weekend in the north country.

Thanks and I encourage others to do the same.

I've been twice and it's big fun.

Unfortunately the timing of the event is bunk for me, as our spring break doesn't show for two more weeks.

There were no really "out there" bikes (no bikes made from driftwood or steer horns), but this had me scratching my head:

Wouldn't want to ride it in the wet

And this 90's tribal tattoo design

Tred (or T-red? dude's English wasn't great and the logo was no help)




It was 3d on the aluminum. I think it was hydroformed when they made the tubes? Anyway, very nice aluminum frames. Without the tribal design and too-deep wheels, I really liked that bike.

I got into Hartford late, just reconnoitered for less than an hour today. Great to see the northeasterners here, but at first blush it doesn't feel a lot different than the Philly show. Except Bilenky has a smaller booth. Didn't see Velo Orange, they've had a big presence at the last few Philly shows.

I'll spend the day Sat, maybe Sun morning before I head home.

Have a biz trip to Cali on Tue, so probably won't post any pix till next weekend?

Yeah, that one looks like it'd be the most vertically stiff and horizontally compliant bike in the show. I wonder if that was the idea?

I wonder if next year the builder is going to turn the flat CF planes 90 degrees for a full suspension bike with no springs or pneumatics? Has anyone used CF in that manner before? It would be a fun experiment. That sort of vertical flex is well developed in skis, snowboards, skateboards, etc.

I forgot to mention that it is made of plywood with a carbon veneer. Definitely an "outside the box" bike....
