    I was going to make a thread as soon as I got back, but I forgot. When I remembered I thought it was too late. It's never too late!

    These are in no particular order.



    ^When I walked by with my camera this guy instantly lit up and started talking about this bike, most of which went in one end and out the other. I think he said something about "liger" being a spur of the moment type thing.

    ^You shoulda seen the guy at this bike's booth.













    ^this one had no visible bolts, everything was hidden, They even welded the rails of the b17 to the seatpost. Better make damn sure that's where you want it. I'm kinda upset this is the only photo I got of it.


    ^suhweet


    This one was made to be used with a dyno hub. All the wires for the lights were run internally through the fork and frame. This was another guy who talked forever, although I was actually interested in what he was saying.



    ^Vanilla. Whata bunch o hipsters. There was a builder with frames exactly like Vanilla's for like half the price .

    ^What a beast

    ^My dad wanted a picture "with" Roland Della Santa




    ^We went to lunch and I saw the mavic benz.



    ^I liked these, they were understated, but very pretty, at least to me.

    ^This was my dad's favorite, unfortunately he forgot to vote for it as the best builder or whatever it was.

    I love that Richard Sachs leaves all the mud on his cyclocross bikes. They were like that at the Bespoke show in NYC too. In the middle of this shiny museum.

    Did you get a chance to fool with a NuVinci hub? Those things are seriously neat but I've never gotten close to one.

    I've had my eye on those things for the last few years out of techno-curiosity. My friend Elizabeth (AKA Wheelgirl) split a booth at SF Bike Expo last fall with a CycleMonkey from Albany, the North American service center for Rohloff hubs. Those guys had a NuVinci hub they were selling for $225. Fortunately, I didn't have $225...

    One drawback of the NuVinci is that gripshifting is the only official available method. In theory, since the gearing is continuous (rather than stepped, as you move from one cog to the next), friction shifting should work fine, right? You could use a barcon?
