My boss Jim and Bradley of American Cyclery went on a little trip to the NAHBS this weekend (lucky bastards). They came back with a tales of revelry, in awe of all the great work they saw. Most exciting was the amount of Soma products they spotted!!(pics to come..promise!)
This gorgeous bike built by Bilenky Cycle Works won Best Lugged Frame. Here's the skinny:
"Brett and Shelly Horton commissioned Bilenky Cycle Works to build this “constructeur” (most pieces are handmade or hand finished) city bicycle." This bike pays homage to Art Deco movement everywhere from the script on the downtube to the lugs.
Most importantly take a close look at the cockpit...check out the mirror polished SOMA OXFORD HANDLEBARS on it!! They looks very classy with the modified Cardiff Julian grips. We at Soma are honored to be part of such a beautiful build.
We're working on a more extensive post about the show, no worries. We were pretty stoked about this though, so we wanted to get it out asap!! Stay tuned...
