That’s it for our blog coverage of the 2011 NAHBS in Austin. But please continue to visit the NAHBS website for updates on next year’s show, the planning for which has already begun.
At this time we’d like to thank all the individuals, corporations and organizations that make this show a huge success every year.
A huge thank you to show director and NAHBS founder Don Walker and his management team, who keep the show simultaneously relevant to the entire cycling industry, and true to its original vision; no mean task.
Many thanks to NAHBS’ corporate and media sponsors, without whom the show could not exist: Shimano, New Belgium Brewery, Giordana, DeFeet, Mellow Johnny’s and Bicycle Sport Shop, Bicycling Magazine, cyclingnews.com, Momentum Magazine, MountainFlyer Magazine, DirtRag, and Cog Magazine.
A big thank you to our builders and vendors, who continue to innovate, generate new ideas and methods, and create the best bicycle-related products on the planet.
And finally, a Texas-sized thank you to the great city of Austin and its active cycling community, who provided the volunteers and bottomless enthusiasm necessary to produce a great show. Austin gave us killer food and music in its inimitable style that added to, but did not overwhelm, the show itself.
We’ll see you next year in Sacramento, California for the 2012 North American Handmade Bicycle Show!
