Team Handmade Returns!

Team Handmade 16-17 jersey

Louisville, Kentucky: Team Handmade returns for the 2016-17 cyclo-cross season, in support of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS); it aims to honor the craft and tradition of handmade bicycle frames and components.  

The 2017 edition of NAHBS will take place March 10-12 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  More information can be found at http://www.2017.handmadebicycleshow.com/.

Custom team frames are hand built by Don Walker (Don Walker Cycles), who has specialized in steel, fillet-brazed bicycle frames over the past 24 years and founded NAHBS in 2005. 

Team Handmade members are primarily based within the Ohio Valley, but reside from California to North Carolina.  Off the course, team members strive to share their passion of the sport with others; introducing, encouraging, and inspiring upcoming and junior racers in particular.

The race schedule kicks off in early September at the Pro CX opener: Rochester Cyclocross.  Shortly thereafter, racers will be present across a wide spectrum of events and categories with emphasis on the US Pro CX and OVCX series, and the 2017 USA Cyclocross National Championships in Hartford, CT.

Team Handmade Switches Gears for 2015-16 CX Season

 

Team Handmade Cycles Pro + Short Sleeve Jersey 3 - Edited______________________________________________________________________________

Louisville, Kentucky: The cyclocross team previously known as “Don Walker Cycles Racing” will move forward as “Team Handmade,” in support of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS).  In addition to building steel, fillet-brazed bicycle frames over the past 23 years, Don Walker owns NAHBS, which he founded in 2005.  The team aims to honor the craft and tradition of handmade bicycle frames and components.

Craft is important for many reasons, but among the lead reasons are that you are doing business with someone whose passion is the bicycle. Let’s face it—if you’re passionate about riding bikes, maybe you want to show your passion by having something made just for you, by someone who is as, if not more, passionate about bicycles. Each step in the build process is done with care, attention, and passion, and that in itself is almost as important as the craft itself.

-Don Walker
