Indianapolis — A crowd of 1728 on the final day of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show resulted in an total of 6,428 attendees over three days of what many exhibitors described as ‘the best NAHBS yet.’

As in past years, the show culminated with the awards for the best bicycles at the show. This time for the first time, an awards jury made all selections but two: President’s and People’s choices. The jurors were Dale Brown, Steve Hampsten, Doug Brooks, Mike Barrie, and James Huang.

Best Carbon Bike
Nine months of work went into the design of the prototype carbon fiber bike by Independent Fabrication. The crown-themed lugs, which were made with the assistance of Edge, arrived at the IF workshop on Thursday a week before the show, and everything fitted together first time around. For Independent Fabrication, this is a learning journey into a new material as the company continues to expand its knowledge base.
Way to go IF!!
