I was about to ask this myself - UrbanVelo has some but they're focused on fixies, etc. for the obvious reasons - I haven't seen any coverage at all of the MTBs there. If anyone knows of a good site with pics, please post!

Hardtail 29ers were everywhere, mostly steel and ti but also quite a few carbon frames. If I were to choose a steel bike to order it would be a tough choice between Black Cat, Ira Ryan, Signal Cycles, Engin and Cielo. Really loved the semi-lugged Black Cat 29er and the great details on the Signal.

As others said, lots of great hardtail 29ers, and a lot of really nice 650B bikes. If anyone saw the SS hardtail brought by Craig Rosene (I hope that's right) it was absolutely amazing. It was his 7th bike ever, and he was incredibly humble about it. I hope we will be hearing his name in the future.

Black Cat, Elgin, Vanilla, and Signal had some beautifully detailed bikes. Funk had the latest iteration of the La Ruta that looked like a lot of fun. Bilensky had some bikes that just scream to be ridden hard. Kish had the worlds coolest kids bike. Etc.

I am looking to build a cross bike and I think I am going to have to grow my budget a lot, because all of the sudden an off the shelf frame just seems underwhelming.

Misc. NAHBS photos

I'm no photographer, but when I could put my eyes back in my head long enough to remember to take out my camera, these caught my eye. Holy crap, what a show.



And here's me and the crew on our way down to NAHBS on our collection of Cook Bros, KOS cruisers, and various Firemans Texas Cruzers. Old school BMX represent!!

Craig was awesome. Starstruck, but he definitely is a builder to be reckoned with!
Did you get a chance to see Shamrock's Celtic 'Cross? Redefined functional 'cross bikes for me.

I did see Shamrock's bike. It took a minute to see through the flashy paint and shamrock details, but that was a very nice bike. What was it specifically that stood out to you on the Shamrock?
