NAHBS 2015 gallery: The best mountain and fat bikes from Louisville

Awesome machines from Eriksen, Black Cat, Sycip, Fat City Cycles, and more

The 2015 North American Handmade Bicycle Show may have closed its doors a few weeks ago but we’re still emotionally recovering from the onslaught of incredible bikes that were on hand there.

For this round of coverage, we bring you some of the most stunning mountain and fat bikes to catch our eyes this time around, including the return of Fat City Cycles, Eriksen Cycles’ perennially stunning titanium frames, Sycip’s neverending blend of art and machine, incredible fabrication work from Michigan builder Quiring Cycles and upstart outfit Moonmen, and more.

Another stunner from moonmen came in this titanium fat bike:

We're still picking our jaws off the floor after seeing this titanium fat bike from new Colorado builder Moonmen

So grab a coffee and click through the gallery above – oh, and make sure to keep your wallet well out of reach because it’s safe to say that you’ll definitely have the old ‘n+1’ rule in mind after seeing some of these. Happy viewing, and stay tuned for more to come.

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
  • Beer of Choice: Mexican Coke
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA
