Ok, so the North America Handmade Bike Show was in Sacramento over the weekend. I almost didn't go but pulled the trigger at the last second (mostly due to prodding by wifey). Man am I glad we went. The drive over to Sac is even easier than I remember....just a little over two hours and we were in the hotel. I'm lazy so we choose the one right across from the convention center.
So now it's about 8 pm in Sacramento on a Friday night.....fortunately, I had enough down time at work to locate some breweries, walking distance from the hotel. We hit Rubicon brewing for a late dinner and beer. The outdoor seating was great and they allow dogs, so we were set. (Note: All road trips out of our house require the dog.) With 6 house beers and 5 cask ales on tap we were off to a good start. Most of the conversation at surrounding tables was disk brake this, custom lugged that, so I knew we were in the right place.
Blah, blah, blah.....you want to see bikes. There are a lot of them so I'll post like five-ten a day for a few days. Here's the starting batch!
Yep, you should be shocked....my first pic is a beer bike. Note the dry ice...the beer was cold!
If you think the first one was overkill, how about a fat bike with a built in growler holder?
Cargo (or kids) with class!
Absolute flowing style!
Ok, that should get you started. I'll try to post some more later.
