Best Artisan Bike
Winner: Dekerf Cycles
Vancouver's Dekerf Cycles has been building steel and titanium bicycles for over 20 years, and at this year's NAHBS, they took home the honor of Best Artisan. One of the more bizarre and intriguing bikes on display this year, Dekerf's road bike is made with straight-drawn titanium tubes that were formed into their new shapes in-house. An interesting cow-horn style integrated bar-stem combination tops off the build, which we promise is completely road-worthy — despite its strange appearance. The result certainly caught the eye of the judges and serves as the perfect reminder of what can happen when creativity meets craftsmanship.
