If you’re not excited for BikeCraft yet, you should be! This is going to be a monumental gathering of bicycle-inspired artisans that you will not want to miss. We just announced sign-ups last week and we already have about 30 or so vendors. (Note: We are still accepting registrations!).
Below is a list of who has signed up so far (along with their description of their products):
Pedal Bike Tours
BikeCraft 2010 Vendor List (as of 11/16)

The Tricera Top Tube Pad, the only top tube pad that stows your tools while protecting your frame and adding some pop to your ride! Plus they’re hand made, local and sustainable. Cheers and Gears!
Max Kirchoff / Tress by Bike
Trees by Bikes is gearing up for their second year. They’ll be taking sign-ups for holiday tree deliveries and will share Christmas ornaments made from recycled bicycle parts. i.e. snowflake chainlinks, cogs made into snowmen.
Barbi Touron / Inner Beauty Inner Tube Jewelry
All of my jewelry is made from recycled bicycle inner tube. The design is cut out by hand, using very tiny scissors. The design does not follow a pattern, instead it’s cut free form. This brings a more organic feel to industrial materials. I think of it as urban lace, because of the effect and the amount of time it takes to gain this effect.
Misia Pitkin / Double Darn Clothing
I make cycling caps, and mechanic aprons.
Fred DiMeglio / Man Vs. Ink
I will be selling original paintings, silk screen prints and drawings.
