The will open its doors in Sacramento, , March 2-4, to a feast of the finest artisan products in the cycling world.

With 172 exhibitors, including 12 rookie builders, this almost equals the largest in the eight-year history of the show, with only two exhibitors fewer than the Austin show in 2011.

Don Walker, the show’s founder and president, said “It was not our original intention to make the show this large. Last year in Austin we had a significantly larger show hall, but demand for booths was so strong this year in Sacramento that we ended up increasing our floor plan two times. And we still have a waiting list. It just goes to show how much strength and vitality there is in the artisan manufacturing sector of the cycling industry. It’s not shrinking, not at all, it’s getting quite a lot bigger.”

Visitors to the show are advised to spend two days or more since there is so much to see and do, it is likely to be difficult to discover all of the design, engineering and fabrication treasures as well as attend the many social functions and cyclist parties taking place outside show hours.

A team of six from Rex Cycles got to participate in this year’s Rapha Gentlmen’s Race.   A film and discription of last year’s race can be found here  Rapha not only makes really nice clothing, they also put on really fun events.  Our team was the first of 28 to complete the 130 mile course.  Our prize for 10 hours of pavement and gravel: 28 cases of beer and great memories of beautiful scenery and hard riding!  Big thanks to Tad Bell, Pete Burnett, Chris Courtney, Chris Husing and Greg Talbert for joining me.  It was a blast!
