Join Contender Bicycles and SRAM in welcoming the North American Handmade Bicycle Show to Salt Lake City. We will be hosting a NAHBS sneak peek of custom bicycles from some of America’s top builders at the shop on Thursday the 9th from 6 – 8 pm. This meet and greet event will feature steel, titanium, and carbon bicycles from Stinner Frameworks, Strong Frames, Kent Eriksen Cycles, Breadwinner Cycles, Shamrock Cycles, Mosaic Bespoke Bicycles, and Allied Cycle Works. The individuals behind these independent bike brands will be in attendance to answer questions, share their cycling knowledge and just hang out. The fine folks from SRAM components will be giving away swag while everyone enjoys tacos from local favorite Alamexo and beverages courtesy of Contender Bicycles. All are welcome to attend, we look forward to seeing you there.
Allied Cycle Works has set their sights on developing and producing world-class carbon fiber bicycles right here in the USA. In a world where most high-end frames, regardless of brand origin, are manufactured in increasingly fewer locations, Allied want you to enjoy the ride on one of their light weight, high quality, and expertly engineered carbon bikes made in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Stinner is confidently building high end bicycle frames in sunny Southern California. The Stinner crew are offering custom steel or titanium road, gravel, and mountain framesets; built up with carbon forks and ready to take your choice of parts. Their minimalist paint schemes create aesthetically pleasing bikes that are claimed to ride even better than they look.
Tim O’Donnell is the sole proprietor and man behind the scenes at Shamrock Cycles. A veteran frame builder based in Indianapolis, Indiana, he creates lugged and brazed steel frames in the classic tradition. Shamrock Cycles have stayed up to date with their UCI approved track and cyclocross race frames and mountain bikes designed around your current favorite wheel size. Shamrock Cycles offers almost endless custom options to make your new custom dream bike a reality.
Tony Pereira and Ira Ryan of Breadwinner Cycles, also located in the PNW, create handmade custom steel made-to-order works of art inspired by the people who ride every day. Portland is one of the world’s greatest bicycling cities, and it has long fostered artisan makers and small businesses. Breadwinner’s steel road bike, the Lolo, was a 2016 Bicycling Magazine Road Bike Editors’ Choice Winner, and they’re excited to show off more of their work at NAHBS this year. The beauty of Breadwinner is not just that they make great steel road bikes, they make all around great road bikes that just happen to be made of steel.
Hailing from Bozeman, Montana is Carl Strong and his eponymous bike brand Strong Frames. A lifetime of riding and wrenching lead Carl down the path of designing and building his own frames. Now, a few decades in, Strong Frames is known for their functionality, reliability and stealthy good looks.
Kent Eriksen is well known in the custom bike world for personally crafting exceptionally designed rides for the discerning cyclist. Unlike many small builders Eriksen offers full-suspension mountain bikes in addition to a line-up of high end road, gravel and cross frames. We are excited to see his award winning steel and titanium bikes here during our NAHBS and SRAM preview event.
Mosaic Bespoke Bicycles is making a name for themselves by building excellent steel and titanium bicycles in their Boulder, Colorado workshop. They offer a wide range of models and custom options in their road, cross, and mountain framesets all hand-crafted in-house. Being passionate about building quality bikes keeps Mosaic moving forward with high performance custom bikes for riders of all types.
