    Default Oregon Handmade Show

    The Oregon Handmade show is next Friday (5-9) and Saturday (10-8) at the North St. Warehouse. More info here. Some of the usual Portland builder scene; Breadwinner, Ti Cycles and a new collaboration between Joseph Ahearne and Igleheart Cycles will be showing. Plus THREE of us from the sunny side of the Cascade mountains, Abbey, DiNucci and Magic. We will have product on hand to sell if you're so inclined. Bummed that hosier Winter moved all the way across the country and won't be joining us.

    I'm on a tight schedule this weekend... but I do expect to attend mid to late Saturday afteroon... and come away with a few photos in my typically peculiar style. I'm not expecting to get many pictures, and I'll again experiment with a second lens for non-bicycle photos. I'm wound a little tighter than usual (and friends say I'm wound pretty tight anyway)... so it will be interesting to see if I can let go enough for a breather of art, serendipity, and fun.

    Was a good show. The Handmade Bike and Beer Festival Facebook page has a lot of photos (though, for some reason, none of my displays -- maybe it's because I'm not an OBCA member...).

    Highlights for me:
    * Meeting and briefly talking with Rob English, one of the design inspirations for my own builds.
    * Talking for some time with Amy Sakurai. Always a pleasure to see her work after the show.
    * Meeting Pi Guy.

    So many good conversations, sharing the passion for bikes, so much beer...

    I had warned people at this year's show that my schedule was horrendous... and that I'd be late getting my photos processed. Usually the pictures are ready same weekend. This year I had to work really hard to get them done this weekend as opposed to next weekend. My schedule kinda sucks at the moment, and I'm totally exhausted.

    At any rate, my annual set of not-very-conventional photos are here: OHBS 2016 (Regardless of what the show is called nowadays, my gallery naming convention remains consistent with earlier folders.)

    Galleries of previous shows are in the Portland Bicycle Events Folder

    This year's Blog Entry is sort of short, but it does list all the cool guys I got to chat with (including David from the post above!) The show was a lot of fun, as always.

    On my crazy clock... a week ago seems like the distant past. I couldn't even remember the event enough to write a good blog post. Only now am I remembering about the coffee table book that David and I chatted about. I'd better make myself a note. (No, I don't think I'm going to be assembling that book any time soon... but I should add it to my personal projects backlog which is Yuuuuge, BTW.)

    I had a really nice time too. My highlights include:

    -Meeting and chatting with David Tollefson. It was fun to get your take on steering geometry. I'll have to do some more experimenting.
    -Chatting with Mark DiNucci. I'm always floored by his work.
    -Chatting with Chris Igleheart.
    -English Cycles "single sided" single speed belt drive bike.
    -Chatting with Ron Sutphin and his impressive lugged, tapered steerer, PF30(?), gravel bike. All the lugs were fabricated, including adding sockets for the Paragon dropouts. A very impressive amount of work went into it.

    Lastly, I've been kinda kicking myself for not picking up an Abbey derailleur hanger alignment tool. I'll get one before too long though...
