Trisha and I considered going to the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, meeting in Indianapolis as a midpoint between Nashville and Chicago. I especially wanted to ogle A.N.T. bikes. Trisha’s visit to Chicago last weekend made the traveling less desirable and we gave up on the idea. We can still attend virtually, though, via the photos on the website. Here are my favorites:
Bilenky Cycle Works – Philadelphia, PA
M.A.P. Bicycles – Portland, OR
And, of course, A.N.T. – Holliston, MA
I have a bias for step through frames, obviously. Every one of the bikes showcased in the pictures is a bike style I love. Yet these types of bikes are pretty much impossible to find on the regular market – not even knock offs. What’s up with that? (as, I’ve been told, Trisha’s grandpa would say) Any other favorites out there?
