Gallery: the weird and wonderful bikes of NAHBS 2018

The most eye-catching creations from the world's largest handmade bicycle show

The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is the world's largest display of custom bicycles. Many of these bespoke bicycles are wonderful creations, others can leave you scratching your head. Sometimes they are both weird and wonderful at the same time. 

Case in point: this year at NAHBS there was a swoopy titanium city bike with 36 inch wheels, a fat bike inspired by a watermelon, and a carbon gravel bike painted to look like a circuit board.

Blacksheep always brings wonderfully weird creations to the show. This 36er Ti townie was no exception

Josh has been riding and racing mountain bikes since 1998. Being stubborn, endurance racing was a natural fit. Josh bankrolled his two-wheeled addiction by wrenching at various bike shops across the US for 10 years and even tried his hand at frame building. These days Josh spends most of his time riding the trails around his home in Fort Collins, Colorado.
