North American Hand Made Bicycle Show

March 3-5, 2006 is the North American Hand Made Bicycle Show in San Jose, California. I'm pretty excited about seeing new products from some of the builders in person, particularly Vanilla, Waterford, Calfee (oh, bamboo bike, wherefore art thou?)

I'm not sure which day I'll be going, but if I had to guess, I'd say either Friday or Saturday. So if you're going to be at the show, drop a line and perhaps we can hang out, geek out, or just shoot the bull.

On a semi-related note, when I was searching around about Calfee bamboo, I came upon this beautiful poster done by Mona Caron. What a fantastic advertisement for a modern product! Mona's artwork is all over the Bay Area, and she is truly talented. Check out her site!

This looks killer. The Bamboo really intrigued me when I first saw it. But then I heard that it shreds or sheds or peels or some crazy thing like that. I think if I were to get one, I would encase in glass and hang it on our living room wall.....although my wife would probably object.

Yeah, I don't think Claire would like a bicycle over the fireplace. In fact, I don't know if she would like a bamboo bicycle anywhere, especially not at the rate Craig Calfee is charging... one Calfee bike is enough for perhaps a lifetime.

So chico cyclist, wanna go for a spin? drop a line.
