Judges Special Award: No. 22 Bicycle Company
This year, the NAHBS jury created the Judges Special Award to recognize the builder with the best “total package” including bikes, booth design, and other intangibles. The inaugural recipient was No. 22 Bicycle Company from Johnstown, New York. No. 22 specializes in building frames with titanium, bikes like the Drifter all-road bike seen here. Taking design elements from No. 22’s NAHBS-winning Broken Arrow cyclocross bike, the Drifter is a bike made for riders needing a capable ride on any road. With generous clearance up to 40mm tires front and rear, disc brakes with standard thru-axles, and all-road geometry, the Drifter is the most versatile bike in No. 22’s lineup. It’s also available via No. 22’s new “ready-made” program of complete, finished-to-order bikes. Customers just choose the model, size, and finish and can expect to have their new bike in approximately 2-3 weeks. This Drifter was finished with a burgundy cockpit painted by Velocolour and a premium anodized fade.
