Handmade Bicycles

Good friends Matt and Nate, from Signal Cycles, won "Best City Bike" this year. Rumor has it they would have won last year, but the bike in question didn't have a rack. Brutal criteria? I'll let you decide.

I met Erik Rolf, full name Eriksen Rolf - which is why he can't/won't put his name(s) on the downtube, at the 2009 show in Indy. He was an apprentice at the time and is now the builder/owner of Alliance Bicycles. His bikes looked great and this one happens to be for sale.

Local GB Chris Urbauer got a new Kish 29" single speed. After plowing snow in Lincoln, he drove straight through to Austin for the show.

The conversation went like this:

Nate Woodman, "I brought you a shirt, I hope you like pink."

Richard Sachs, "The pinker the better."
