The 2015 North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) in Louisville has come and gone, but we’re nowhere close to being done showcasing all the cyclocross and gravel eye candy and new gear.
Today we’re taking a look at the NAHBS-judged award winners, and we’re happy to say, cyclocross and gravel bikes dominated the available categories, winning Best New Builder, People’s Choice, Best TIG, President’s Award, Best Cyclocross Bike (of course) and also getting honorable mentions in Best Finish and Best TIG. There was even an award-winning gravel tandem!
Sure, we’re biased, but commend the judges on recognizing these fine creations that hail from the most important category of bikes. And while we did help judge the Best Cyclocross Bike category at NAHBS 2015, the main judging crew of Jeff Archer, Nick Legan and Patrick Brady took care of the rest.
We’ve highlighted the winning and honorable mention cyclocross and gravel bikes, as well as the Best in Show winner in photos. Page through the overall NAHBS 2015 award winners below. See our ever-growing NAHBS 2015 photos and highlights here.
