NAHBS 2012 part 3: Naked Bicycles to Zullo

NAHBS’ doors have closed, but we still have tons to highlight

The bike artisans’ hits keep on coming — we're not even close to the end of our image bank from this year's North American Handmade Bicycle Show, and the quality of the bikes on display hasn't let up, either. 

Included is this round-up are Naked Bicycles' latest stunners, amazingly creative bikes from the mind of Yipsan's Renald Yip, Steve Rex's 25th anniversary machines, a look at Steve Potts' timeless mountain bikes, and more. You'll also find that many of custom builders have wholeheartedly adopted the 650b wheel size for on and off-road use.

There's still more to come in the days ahead, here on BikeRadar — so probably best not to schedule any time-intensive meetings at work this week, should the work of these artisans capture your attention.

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
