    Awesome! Hopefully these fine framebuilders will also consider displaying at August\’s Last Thursday on Alberta, now that Last Thursday is officially car-free!

    There is also going to be a choice exhibit of family rigs – hand-made long bikes will be shown next to commercial long bikes, xtracycles and other family-friendly PUBs/SUBs and multi-occupancy bikes…
