Howdy all!!
I know this is a little late for a NAHMBS report, but i'm sure most people are better at finding good info on it than i am. it was a blast. i love Portland. great town for biking. especially bmx street riding. the bikes at the show were unbelieveable, of course. everything from steel to bamboo to kevlar to hardwood. i met lots of great people, and made some good contacts. the donkelope booth was across the way from the Vanilla booth and next to the Waterford booth. Wisconsin represent! Sacha had a little get together at the Vanilla workshop friday night. it was a who's who of framebuilders, with beer! good times. thanks to Periera, Ahearne and Vanilla for the party. the show was huge! at one point on saturday, you couldn't go in until someone left. lots of people stopped by and said hi. people liked the tandem. Brad from Urbanvelo.org(great site and awesome 'zine) came by and grabbed the tandem, and took some photos for the NAHMBS website. thanks Brad!! the bmx received good interest mainly because hardly anyone else had one. Independent had a tricked out ti and carbon racer. sold most of the tees and all of the cycling caps.(thanks Shaun!) so the logo is out there. that's about all i have for now. i had a great time. thanks Don Walker.
