Best in Show
Winner: Black Cat Bicycles
As more people begin to redefine how, when, and where they ride their bikes, bikepacking is becoming increasingly popular, a trend the NAHBS judges recognized with their award for Best in Show. Designed and built for a shop owner in Durango, Colorado, this Black Cat 27.5" mountain bike comes with specially made bags, making it the perfect choice for long-distance adventures. Owned by Todd Ingermanson, Black Cat is a one-man operation: Ingermanson designed, welded, and even hand-painted the finish on this prize-winning entry. But if you'd like to get one for yourself, you better act quickly; Black Cat's waiting list is currently more than a year long and sure to grow after his NAHBS victory.
