Record Number of Countries at 2016 North American Handmade Bicycle Show
Brands from all around the globe to exhibit at Sacramento show, including first-ever from Russia and Lithuania: Show expecting up to 10,000 attendees.
The North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the world’s largest show for custom-built bicycles, will host frame builders and component manufacturers from across the globe, including the first-ever exhibitors from Russia and Lithuania.
The 2016 show will be held February 26th- 28th, at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, CA. With an earlier date this year, and a return to the outstanding facility in Northern California, the show hopes to see up to 10,000 attendees for the first time in its 12-year history.
NAHBS has always had an international presence, including builders and media, but this year has an especially wide array of brands joining the hundreds of American exhibitors: Brands from across The UK, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Ukraine, Australia, Japan, and of course Canada will also be represented.
Triton hand-built Titanium frames and components will make its first appearance at the show, coming all the way from Moscow. They’ll join Tim Crossman Composites from Lithuania, who produce handmade carbon-fiber tubes, frames, and full bikes, along with many other products including drones and marine.
“We usually get a great turnout from international brands, and we’ve become a model of this type of show around the world,” said Don Walker, Founder and President of NAHBS. “We’re especially fortunate to have brands from so far away as Russia and Lithuania this year! It’s another sign that consumers all over the world appreciate the artistry, technological expertise, durability and craftsmanship that go into all these frames and bikes.”
Heading into its twelfth year, NAHBS is dedicated to showcasing the talents of individuals and companies around the world, providing an interactive forum for frame builders and cycling enthusiasts to share their ideas, expertise, and support for an incredibly special industry with a long and rich history. Exhibitors, attendees, and media can register to attend the 2016 show at the NAHBS website now.
