NAHBS 2011

Domínguez Cycles was awarded “Best Fillet-Brazed” at the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show held in Austin, Texas.

What a surprise that was! The award was given for the first frameset I ever built:

Thanks to all the nice people who made their ways to Austin and stopped by my booth for a chat. You’re the reason I came to NAHBS. It was sure nice talking with all of you – I hope you all had a great time!

And, a big “Thanks!” to Lesley Schommer and Don Walker for organizing and hosting the show and making us all feel welcome and part of a big family. Of course, thanks to Erik, Matt, Dave, Chris, and Randall for working together to spread the “nice” from Minnesota at the show.

And, finally, congratulations to Dave Anderson for being awarded “President’s Choice” for his 953, brushed-finish, touring bicycle!

– Vincent.
