“International” Handmade Bicycle Show: the winners

The 13th North American Handmade Bicycle Show finished yesterday in Salt Lake City, Utah, but because of the number of non-US bicycle makers and brands it really ought to be renamed the International Handmade Bicycle Show.

There were a record number of international exhibitors at the show, along with over 180 total exhibitors. There were four exhibitors from Russia, a custom builder from Singapore, British brands, four from Japan, and new for this year, carbon-frame builder FiftyOne Bikes, the first Irish brand to make the journey.

The Overal Best In Show winner was Peacock Groove, pictured.
