Blackcat’s frames never disappoint!
The 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) has arrived. I would like to start The Bicycle Escape’s coverage of the event with my new ride, the pictured YiPsan cruiser.
After a 14 hour drive and getting rear ended along the way Scott Quiring made it to the 2010 North American Handmade Bicycle Show with a smile and pile of beautiful bicycles.
We just built this beautiful Independent Fabrication Factory Light Weight for Alan. I love the sky like fade complete with the moon and stars. Check out our photo album for more pictures.

We will kick off my North American Handmade Bicycle Show blog fest with an extra special post.
Fans of the shop know that one of our favorite tasks is customizing bicycles. The most resent step toward making every bike extra special has been to stock custom color items. We noticed that it seems impossible to get a white, orange or yellow headset. Well, we put an end to that.
This was a very fun project built for Ken. He plans to use the bike as a light touring rig and as a general road bike that he can take with him on travel.
We just had the honor of assembling Chuck’s Independent Fabrication Factory Lightweight. The frame has a lot of gorgeous finish work. Chuck chose hand painted stars to accent the frame.
Lucky rider George just got a custom powder coated 29er (decals applied after photo). The color is almost an almond tone that did not show too well in the photo.
A couple days ago I finished my latest project bike- Dark Chocolate. I wanted this bike to be striking to look at but with mellow styling and colors. We chose black and brown to accomplish the desired aesthetic.
Yesterday we completed a fun project: an IF Steel Deluxe Single Speed with a customized XTR crank (a la Jeff Jones). The bike is painted Vanilla Shake with green decals and has the Paragon Sliding Dropouts.
