2011 NAHBS North American Handmade Bicycle Show, Austin, Texas

For the past week I was fortunate enough to be in Austin, Texas with the Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times crew for 2011 NAHBS.  I spent a lot of time during the show signing up people for subscriptions, selling schwag, and talking to the thousands of people that poured through the Austin Convention Center to check out all the cool bikes.  But, every once in a while I got to go venture onto the floor and see some incredible works of art.  When we weren't at the show, we were either eating, drinking, exploring, or shooting layouts for Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times.  I was able to spend some time hanging out with the guys at Alchemy Bicycles in Austin, and at the Yellow Bike Project right outside the city.  Very cool.  

It was a great trip, with some good friends...and I met a lot of new, interesting people along the way.
