History 101 North American Handmade Bicycle Show, started 3 years ago in Houston, Texas, is dedicated to showcasing the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle. It aims to be a gathering point — online and in person — for framebuilders and consumers looking for custom-made bikes, for the sharing of ideas and promotion of this industry and its traditions.

More exotic bikes coming up your way!
This time they're all made of wood.
The scale reads 17.75 pounds. Not bad because this is a monocoque design, it is light weight.
See how really exotic it could get, look at the stem!

Sycip bikes is one of the more well known custom frame builders in the US.
When you see their bikes, you'll know why.
SJ and I talked to Jeremy at Sycip for a while and he was telling us about his visit to the PI last year and his experience riding in "traffic". He was also pretty pscyhed to have you representing the brand in the PI... Very good guy and great builder... It's good to see other flip framebuilders...
I have yet to perfect track skidding, but I run my fixie brakeless ;D. Who needs brakes anyway ;D.
Some of our hills get pretty scary even with a front brake. Hope you got good insurance. Hahaha ;P
My commute has one hill and part of riding a fixie is anticipation. So with that one hill and my ever improving "braking" skills, I still don't see any use for even a front brake. If I lived in San Francisco then definitely. Now, let me check if I do have a good insurance, hehe. ;D
"Shimano used the Handmade Show to unveil its 29er wheel. The nine in the graphic is a snake. Snakes eat frogs; if that’s an indication, the competition should look out. The wheels are built on a XT platform with 24 spokes, a 7075-T6 aluminum rim and XT freehub body. The set weighs 1810 grams and will be available in July."
