That is definitely one of the highlights of the show. He brazed his own lugs, BTW. I overheard him say the bike is a one-off and not for sale. A spectacular bike, for sure.

I was surprised at the number of wood and bamboo framed bikes. While beautiful, I just canít see such work as anything more than a novelty.

Iím so glad I went. There was just so much amazing work to see. Some of those guys are really talented and creative!

He also mentioned he was working on some production frames to be released in the fall. Definitely curious about those.

That Porter was the highlight of the show for me. He was really cool. It's amazing to have this show 2 miles from house every few years.
