NAHBS 2010 – Bilenky’s booth crew were quite involved in their conversations when I swung by, so I scooped up a bunch of photos, but not lots of info…but the pictures speak volumes.Ã‚Â Their tandem won “Best Road Frame” of the show this year!
The red roadie above mated a straightforward front triangle with some curvy stays for a wild looking bike.Ã‚Â Built up with a collection of seriously vintage parts, it presents a bit of a mixed package that’s hard not to stare at.Ã‚Â Check after the break for closeups of this (you won’t believe the gruppo) and some amazing lugs and brazing work…
Almost hidden by the stays is an indented seat tube letting the rear wheel tuck up closer.
First gen Campagnolo anyone?
If old world gears and changers aren’t your thing, there’s this sweet retro looking fixie with a cool bent seat tube.
One of few bikes at the show that had the seat stay end caps wrap around the seat clamp lug.
Above, the “Best Road Frame” winner. Why waste such a great bike on just one rider, right?
Here’s what these bikes look like before the paint and polish:
