Blackcat's frames never disappoint!
The 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) has arrived. I would like to start The Bicycle Escape’s coverage of the event with my new ride, the pictured YiPsan cruiser.
I was quite pleased with the way our most recent YiPsan build. Steel tubes and components kept the weight down to 18.5lbs with custom frame, fork, post, and stem.
After a 14 hour drive and getting rear ended along the way Scott Quiring made it to the 2010 North American Handmade Bicycle Show with a smile and pile of beautiful bicycles.
Thanks to Renold and all who attended our YiPsan event yesterday.
iginally uploaded by thebicycleescape We will kick off my North American Handmade Bicycle Show blog fest with an extra special post.
Fans of the shop know that one of our favorite tasks is customizing bicycles. The most resent step toward making every bike extra special has been to stock custom color items. We noticed that it seems impossible to get a white, orange or yellow headset. Well, we put an end to that.
This was a very fun project built for Ken. He plans to use the bike as a light touring rig and as a general road bike that he can take with him on travel.
We just had the honor of assembling Chuck's Independent Fabrication Factory Lightweight. The frame has a lot of gorgeous finish work. Chuck chose hand painted stars to accent the frame.
