NAHBS Retro Bike part 2

It doesn't get any prettier than this!

Some of the small details around the front derailleur

I must say, setting up the notoriously difficult brakes wasn't as hard as I had expected.

Threading the cable into the brake lever was probably the trickiest bit.

The glamour shot in the hallway of the hotel!

I believe I caught a shot of this bike featured in a NAHBS Flickr set. Now if I can find it. Can't wait to see more and hear more about the show.

Did the white bike win best of show, or the Di2 bike? In either case, very well deserved. Congrats!!!!!

Congratulations Dave!

Admittedly, I've been pretty disappointed with the media coverage (maybe NAHBS has been embargoing stuff) but the media sponsor still hasn't made it past day 1 in their coverage. The blogger media (such as commute by bike) has done only a little bit better.

Beautiful work, honors are well-deserved. Best Lugged bike in 2009, Best of Show in 2010. What's planned for 2011?

I found a few more shots of this frame as well as the winning frame on the flickr set.

Browse back and forth here and you'll see Dave's booth.
