NAHBS: the War Axe Perspective

While War Axe didn't set a booth up at NAHBS, we were certainly in attendance for more reasons than to simply look at well-made bikes.

Sam attended a wide variety of seminars, some helpful, some not.  We also introduced ourselves to vendors whose services might come in handy from time to time.

One of the more interesting seminars we attended was the "Business of Frame Building" presentation put on by Carl Strong.  While I won't bore you with the particulars, it was informative and affirming for Sam and I.  With little exception, we found that we'd essentially followed along the path that Carl recommended.  Smart or lucky, it's hard to say, but either way, it was nice to hear.

Our expectations remain reasonable but our excitement remains.  Expect a UFO sighting in the no-so-distant future.
