Bike Show/Then Blizzard

We drove down to Denver for the NAHBS (North American Handmade Bicycle Show). Like I’ve stated here before, you have to put this on your bucket list if you’ve never been to one. The show gets better and better every year.

We didn’t get to the show all that early. I had a mediocre night and we got a late start. So, I didn’t get to see as much as I had hoped. Luckily, I still have most of the day today to see what I missed.

I ran into a bunch of people I knew. Some I haven’t see for years, others, I know pretty well, but it was great catching up some with all of them. I got a little bit tired of explaining my shoulder situation, but that is how it goes.

I did a few interviews, but ran out of juice, just like I had predicted, with still two hours to go. And that was it for yesterday.

Kent Eriksen had an awesome display. I’ll have to post more about the whole show tomorrow. Last night wasn’t my best. I have to get organized for today and then head up back up to the mountains.

It started snowing here about 8 pm last night. It is supposed to snow somewhere between 10-16 inches in Silverthorne. That is going to be slow going back up there. Plus, shoveling is going to be ugly. My left arm is going to hate me.

Monday I have a couple PT appointments and another appointment with a hand surgeon. I figure I might as well take care of as many physical problems as I can while I’m laying low.

Kent won Best Titanium Construction award, which he nearly always does.  His bikes are beautiful.

I don't get to see my friend Andy Hampsten anywhere nearly as often as I'd like to.

The bikes here are works of art.

    Andy Hampsten is one of the classiest and most talented bike racers to grace our sport. If you had the privelege of racing with Andy…then you understand.
