NAHBS 2013 Day 1: Ground Up Speed Shop

SONY DSC

NAHBS Day 1….wow, where to start? With so many beautiful bicycles and so little time, I felt like a cat chasing a laser pointer only to be distracted by another shiny object before turning my attention back to the laser. Stupid analogy, I know, but for real – the bikes I saw today blew my mind on many levels. It was great to be able to compare and contrast the different builder’s styles, and with so many unique bicycles to boot.

Eric Baar of Ground Up had some extremely rad things going on at his booth and as far as I know, displayed the only BMX bike at the show. His hand lettering also really caught my eye. He even continued to paint the headtube of this bmx while on display! See a couple more shots below.

    • Nope, good ‘ole 20 inch. Thanks man – they were some of my favorites at the show this year.

    damn. beautiful. only thing that would be better is if the BMX bike was the same colors as the sprint bike. that’d be dope~r
