There was some great internet coverage of the North American Handmade Bike show, as usual. Even though we didn't make it to the show this year, we felt like we got a good idea of the bikes that were shown.

I'm sure I missed some cool bikes, but here's a little selection of bikes using VO parts. They're all real stunners, huh?

Urban Velo noted that our snazzy Grand Cru Long Reach Brakes were in evidence, along with many other VO parts.

You can see our Chainguard, Zeppelin 700c Fenders, and (custom painted) porteur kickstand on Mike Flanigan's super cool city bike. A.N.T. Bike has been at it for a while, and

Grand Cru Seatpost made an appearance on Steve Rex's road fixie. Check out Steve Rex Cycles if you get a chance - he makes some really cool classic-but-different bikes.

Our retro bottle cages and Tall Stack stem showed up on the Ventus bike.

The mixte from Muse Cycles really impresses me. Look closely.
It won Best City Bike this year, and is covered in VO parts.

It's got a VO stainless bottle cagethreadless stemthreadless headsettouring saddle, porteur double leg kickstandalloy chainguard, and the VO-spec Kalloy seat post. you can take a closer look at that bike on the a page on their website, and some great photos from ditrag here.
