The North American Handmade Bicycle show was this past weekend, in Richmond, Virginia. The website for the event and their YouTube channel have some great coverage and some of the jawdropping bike builds that were on display there. Above, Sacha, from Vanilla Workshop, offers a tour of a bike he built for his young daughter. Inspired by roadster automobiles and WWII BMW motorcycles, the bike, with 26″ wheels, is designed to grow and be easily modified as his daughter grows. Really gorgeous, thoughtful work.
