I think this image is one of the big reasons I when NAHBS is covered incessantly on the cycling websites.


VeloNews NAHBS 2013 Awards

Best Beard: Kevin Batchelor, Mosaic Cycles. This is without a doubt the most hotly contested category at NAHBS. There are, in fact, more beards than bikes here, and the show's acronym secretly stands for North American Humongous Beard Show. So it is with great pride that we present Mr. Batchelor with the coveted Beardie, awarded for his most fiery beard. Honorable mentions also go to Josh Culbertson of Avery County Cycles and almost every other male at the show. Photo: Matthew Beaudin | VeloNews.com


Not my cuppa, but if it floats YOUR boat...

I was pretty stoked that Bishop Bicycles from Baltimore won a category.

Thanks for the tip, that's a great tool. Here's my better route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2183399
Though, I'm not familiar with "Yelp!", this guy uses it for everything. Based on his RR, it must work pretty good, especially along the coast.

stupid, isn't it??
i mean, there really isn't that much new or different going on there, but seriously? has being one of the hipsters become so important now that even VeloNews has nothing better to report on?

no joke!
especially considering how beautifully Bishop executed this head tube arrangement, it's a pity Shimano didn't have something more worthy.
(Bishop; very nice guy, BTW, and one of the few builders doing anything i find really interesting these days,...)

He should've used something like a Grand Cru crankset and, then, stripped and polished the rest of groupset to match. Better yet, there's enough vintage, Campy drillium stuff around to build the rest of the bike around that beautiful frameset.

That's just sad...I was warned about the Gulf, and the South when I was on my Tour...Turns out to be a nationwide issue, despite that law. Glad he survived.

Highway deaths are up also according to the news. For the under 20-set, it's up something like 18-19% up.

Care to guess the root cause? I'm guessing it's cellphones and texting.

I counted about half-a-dozen or more incidents of people cycling up the street I live on while talking on their mobiles. Stupidest thing I've ever seen.

'Course, I live in the boonies (as WC can attest) so me riding down the road on my phone (txting in the last case) is less of a problem than someone in the 'hood.

This happened on a road I normally commute on. Watch for doors.
