Oregon Manifest Bike Show Day 2-201

Freak bikes were part of the show
at the Oregon Manifest.
– Slideshow below –

The first annual Oregon Manifest Bike Show is now in the history books. I’ve got more coverage to come — including a full report on last night’s Roller Races, updates on several local builders, and of course some general thoughts on the show as well.

For now, check out the slideshow below for a few more selections from my Oregon Manifest photo gallery.

    Went on Friday. Not nearly as good as last year. Hardly anything there. A real disappointment.

    The red cruiser tallbike is actually owned by Dutch of North Freak, and was built by Dead Baby Bikes. He won it at the Dead Baby Downhill – tallbike jousting, of course. So not a Dropout freakbike.

    If anyone has pictures of the Dropout Burrito Bikes (stretched cruisers) or any of the freakbikes no matter who built them it would be most appreciated if you could post them on , or post a link to them here.

    Went on Sat. and was in bike heaven. Beautiful bikes and impressive builders all. Integrity and business combined – what a concept! Yes, Portland is a fantastic place to live.
