The largest show of its kind on the West Coast, the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show will draw more than 30 exhibitors, including some of the most creative and innovative custom bicycle frame builders around.
Presented by the Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association and debuting for its sixth year, the show will return to a popular location remembered from its 2010 show – the Sandbox Studio in NE Portland. Show dates are set for September 28 and 29, with an industry only VIP party Friday the 27.
More than 2,500 attendees are expected over the weekend to see the many businesses that have helped create the rich and diverse cycling culture that has given Oregon its national renowned status for cycling. Advance tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.com.
Oregon is widely credited with having the largest number of independent frame builders in the nation with more than half of its builders in the greater Portland vicinity. From high-end, ultralight racing bikes to the utility cargo bikes that are becoming ever more popular in Oregon, the builders and their bikes will all be on display.
Vendors of custom messenger bags, totes, lights, and other accessories and bike art will be on hand as well as suppliers to frame builders, such as tubing-supplier Reynolds, Intl who will travel from the UK for the show will all be showing their wares.
