The North American Handmade Builders Show was held in San Jose, California from Friday to Sunday. The show’s intent is to highlight the work of small, custom bike builders. Portland had an impressive contingent on hand, showing off a tremendous flair for craftsmanship and aesthetic detail. Notably present were Joseph Ahearne of Ahearne Cycles, Tony Pereira of Pereira Cycles, and Sacha White of Vanilla Bicycles.
I really wanted to be there, but I was tied up with other things. Fortunately some photos have found their way onto the web.
Tony Pereira paid homage to his name with this gorgeous pear detail on a custom stem.
Besides his crazy new Trike, Sacha White of Vanilla was up to his usual tricks. Here’s a few shots of his latest creations from an MTBR.com gallery.
