    Just saw this thread. Was there for a bit today. Some beauties on display. Plus free beer and fun folks to chat with. Chatted with Yipsan, nice funny guy. Loved that 'mountain dew' yellow touring bike of his. Need to start a list for Santa Clause...

    I showed up about 5 and can share a very mixed review. The bikes on display were all amazing. I would have been happy to own any of them.

    I did not get the sense the builders wanted to do anything but drink and talk to eachother but that may have been due to the late hour. Many of them did not seem to be around and I walked around the very small place a few times looking for name tags they all were supposed to be wearing.

    The only exception was yipson and nobilete who were both by their amazing bikes and happy to chat. If I were in the market for a lugged steel frame it would be difficult to choose between them.

    For a first year and free event, it was good. There were fantastic bikes (the Mosaic ti cross bike was a perfect thing, as was YipSan's rando bike with the custom front rack ... what attention to detail Renold has), but a lot of the bikes were meh. A few, I was surprised were shown in the light of day. I found the builders (if you could find them) to be very approachable and good to talk with. I'll be back next year.
