The 2019 North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the largest event in the world for the handmade bicycle market, had a record number of exhibitors and enthusiastic crowds. This year marked the show’s 15-year anniversary and was the third time it’s been held in Sacramento, California.
The three-day event featured over 200 exhibitors – from framebuilders to wheels to components and accessories – including a large contingent of international exhibitors hailing from Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Russia, and Taiwan.
More importantly for you, the coveted NAHBS Awards were given out. Here’s a look at all the award winners from the 2019 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. All photos are courtesy North American Handmade Bicycle Show.
