Konno Cycle Works/Cherubim
The Japanese Cherubim Rambler, which won the award for the Best city bike, was a very stunning bike.
From the shiny dual top tubes and rack, to the unique handlebars, this bike was gorgeous in its simplicity and lines. Top it all off with Sturmey Archor’s S2C Duomatic 2 speed kick shift hub with coaster brake, and Ghisallo wood rims makes for an excellent package.
Shiny to the max! I am not even sure what this handlebar type is called, but the bike looks like it would be fun to ride, drifting along with the coaster brakes.
This Japanese company makes Mahogany boats, furniture and bikes. Sueshiro Sano of Sanomagic is a ninth-generation shipwright, and his attention to detail really shines on these bikes. The workmanship on the bikes was exquisite, from the wood bars, saddles, seatpost wheels and frames.
Desalvo Custom Cycles
They had a gorgeous 27.5″ titanium bike in their booth, tricked out with SRAM XX1 and ENVE wheels. Desalvo is based out of Ashland Oregon, and makes titanium and steel road, cross, track and mountain bikes.
