Small, bespoke frame builders have been getting a lot more attention as of late, which makes me happy. It’s so nice seeing all of the talent and unique touches made to the frame designs. Well, along these lines is another tribute to the lil’ guy, the Master Bike Builders Show (MBBS) being held in Bentonville, Arkansas in September on Saturday the 16th, and Sunday the 17th.

Bentonville is now one of the bicycle towns, home to the OZ trails, as well as epic spots for road, gravel, and mountain biking. This show will be held in a central location that is only blocks away from trails and cycling traffic. It will be easy for attendees to take advantage of Bentonville’s extensive trail system, as well as paved and gravel trails and paths for riders of all types.

The Master Bike Builder Show is looking for exhibitors to take part in showing off their talents to Bentonville’s passionate cycling audience. The show is open to the public and free to attend.

Haha, author said the price of $450 or $850 is reasonable for handmade bike builders to pay to show off their products. What a joke.

Handmade builders have not only seen massive rise in materials and insurance, but are now being told that without paying these exorbitant entry fees are not allowed to participate in this event.

Fortunately this community already knows who the local bike builders are and we aren’t looking for more events to exploit us here.

That seems to be on par with other shows, only surpassed by the MADE show which is free to small builders.

Nice! Great to see some of the smaller builder’s getting some air time. I know of a rider who purchased a Zinn and it was beautifully made.
