What's This?

Earlier in March 2015, hundreds of bike enthusiasts gathered under one roof. Why the enthusiasm? The simple answer is custom bicycle frame building, but at the heart of this niche assembly is an ethic that encompasses all aspects of cycling: sport, craft, and community.

Don Walker, the founder and president of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show—affectionately known as NAHBS—quietly celebrated the ten-year anniversary of the show, which finally made its way to Louisville.

I toured the Kentucky International Convention Center to ask vendors about their craft, about the walkability of their hometown, and how Louisville stacks up in comparison.

What I found were coffee roasters, former pharmacists, historians, and makers from all over the world, coming together under a single Kentucky roof to share their love for all things bicycle.
