I'm now in my seventh year of covering the North American Handmade Bicycle Show and even in its humble beginnings – first in Houston, then two years in a dingy glorified tent in San Jose – it's never ceased to impress.
For sure a major part of the story of any handbuilt bicycle is the builder behind the machine: the personality, the artistry, the philosophy behind everything they do.
We'll get to some of those stories soon enough but we all know what you came here for: the bikes! So for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy this enormous image gallery from the first day of the show. Hope you didn't plan on getting much done today…
