The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is always filled with quality bikes from around the country. I envy the judges in the fact that they get to go around the hall looking at amazing bikes all weekend but I don’t envy having to choose a winner. In my book all of the bikes made by the craftsmen at the show are winners. Here are how the award categories turned out for 2014 NAHBS.
For me the highlight is Breadwinner Cycles winning best Mountain Bike. Tony has now won best MTB bike three times. To find out more details on the Bad Otis and get one for yourself, check out Breadwinner’s site.
UPDATE: The NAHBS site has updated all of the categories from the event with photos of the winning bikes.
