2013 NAHBS: Highlights and Winners from Denver


The always classic Ritchey 650B.

Groovy Cycleworks had a really wild paint job on their Feast of Flesh…Zombie Ti Road Bike.

They had a couple of interesting wood bikes up towards the front of the show. The Owen bike with the cantilever seatstay (would it be called that?) was extremely unique.

Chris Connor‘s Woody 29er Scorcher wood bike is constructed with steam bent and Kevlar reinforced laminated ash, and used a Gates belt drive.

Arizona based Form had their titanium Prevail mountain tricked out with a sweet paint job, with matching on the fork and seatpost. Specifics on the Prevail: Bob Erickson custom Prevail 29er with XX1, ENVE Carbon rims to I9 Disc Hubs, Rock Shox Sid 29er RCT3.

The Festka Family from Czech Republic had some very wild wheels that had a mirror finish and colors that matched the front and rear triangles.

The Legacy city/commuter bike had sweet lines (top is dual tubes), Gates belt drive and a front dynamo hub and light combination.

Lastly, the always trick Italian Tommasinibi Cycles.

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on the trail.

    Word from the show is that the awards process has gotten “funky” and “screwy” and therefore some builders are still showing but not participating in the awards competition. This is worth reporting on, don’t you think?
