It’s been a few years since I was hanging with the old pal John on NAHBS floor here in Sacramento. Since then his galleries and heavy coverage of the hand made machines have become the cream of the crop year after year. I’ll be keeping up with his sets this week so check back for a few purdy ones like this LoveBaum track or hop over to peep yourself!
Yes. I still have a ton of photos I haven’t posted from NAHBS haha. Between working, planning some events and working some more I’ve been getting bogged down. NAHBS flicks will be finished up this week so peep what’s left! Here’s some shots of the Brooks stuff that was on display at the show. Lots of colored saddles and accessories on display this year for those trying to get a specific color scheme worked out. The tan leather is pretty classy looking and a nice alternative to the darker brown or black that most people go with when buying Brooks saddles. My favorite was the super dope bag below… wish I ended up with more photos and gotten a closer look at that thing. So fresh!
This was one of only a few fixed freestyle bikes at NAHBS this year (perhaps one of two?) so I spent a good amount of time looking at it. I didn’t really get much in the way of photos of the Rock Lobster creation but hot damn does this thing look good. Check the parts on that bad boy…super solid build! Really dig that downtube bend too. The while thing comes together with sick design, solid parts and a slick color scheme. Fresh. It looks like there may be some future for an offshoot of Invision stuff from Rock so I’d be on the lookout for that!
Naturally I had to migrate over to Burro once I got to NAHBS this year. Being that they were the only “fixed freestyle” associated brand there for the most part I needed to see what their setup looked like. There was a nice collection of their bags and straps on display in once of the coolest little layouts. Seriously some of the closest attention to detail at the whole show…bones, candles, sacks and crates. It all looked so proper! They had essentially anything you need as far as bags. Hip pouches, messenger bags, backpacks, rucksacks. It was all there for you to drool over. Really might have to nab me one of those beer holsters! Haha. There’s a bunch more flicks below so click through then head to Burro’s spot to grab some gear!
When you walk into a bike show and you see a DeLorean you’re naturally going to be drawn to it. But when you arrive to see awesome hand built bikes, one adorned with damn Liger!, you aren’t disappointed Mcfly isn’t kicking it at the setup. Sarto definitely had one of the most elaborate and sick displays at NAHBS this year. Definitely some fine craftsmanship from these guys coming all the way from Italy. Check the video below for info on their “super custom” bikes and how they’re made…sick stuff!
There was a TON of bikes locked up outside the Sacramento Convention Center for NAHBS this weekend…obviously. Here’s a few shots of some that may or may not look familiar ;). I didn’t really think to snap some photos like this until the end of the day as I was wandering around looking at the show. Next time I’ll have to get a ton of these as it would be cool to show the diversity of the people that go to shows like this!
This was one of my favorites at the show this past weekend. Loving the green that Vendetta chose to go with and the detailing on this is super sick. That stem/bar combo…though a bit common on handmade pieces…looks real nice! The build was finished off with some stellar track parts to keep it as classy as those hand painted lines. Check the Vendetta gallery for more!
Its been a super long weekend and one hell of a time…here’s a little preview of what’s to come this week as far as photos and such. A huge thanks to everyone who came out, helped or was involved in anything I was a part of! The Bike Heist crew…you guys rule for making that trip all the way to Sacramento to show your awesome movie!
Had a blast at this last night! Good people, tons of pizza and free beers! There was literally like 25 pizza and two taps running all night. Beer pong got a little intense in the best way haha. Check the Alcohauler out. Things a beast. Thanks to Chrome for putting this on!
If you’re looking for something to hit up this Friday after the NAHBS events Brian from Toro and I put this little shcmoozer together for ya. Going down at the Golden Bear at 10 we’ll be showing bike videos on the flat screens, having a raffle, some good tunes from my coworker and local messenger Brian aka Bwild. It’s indeed going to be wild and no doubt a good time. Drink specials from Red Bull and prizes from some solid brands. Get here Friday and have one hell of a time!
