Nahbs 2018

It's up!

NAHBS 2018, Hartford Connecticut. February 16 - 18, 2018.

If you can make it, do it! The show is gonna be huge. Companies who haven't been in many years or at all will be there...Parlee, IF, Crumpton, Groovy and more. Companies like Moots, No 22, Boyd, FSA and other have gone from a 10x20 to a 20x20 or bigger booth!

Should be an amazing show.

The poster boy is Erik Noren from Peacock Groove.

Could be great February weather or could get a massive February blizzard.

It's been a couple years since I got to a bike show. Would definitely like to do it again.

When you look at the size of NAHBS now and also other industry participants there..geee, it looks like 'interbike' w/o the giganto 'off the shelf' brands..

Nice..wish it would come back 'west' again..

Here is what the map looks like so far. Sorry you can't expand some, it's an insiders map. Us, Campy, Shimano and a bunch of others are all in the red highlighted ones for sponsors. It takes a bit to get updated so while it looks barren it's not. It's gonna be a HUGE event. Every booth will be filled.

This (hopefully) will be my first time attending. The 16th-18th (Friday-Sunday).
Is one day better to attend than another?

If you want to see the major awards- Best in Show, Presidents Choice, Campy Awards, that's Sunday.

Judging is done on Friday and Saturday. The ribbon award are done on Saturday afternoon.

All three days are good. Sunday is usually the slower one. Friday is slower to start till work get down. Since it's near tons of stuff- boston, NYC and more, it should hopefully be busy all three days.
