Independent Fabrication “Fresh Rides”

Feb 21, 2009

I had the opportunity to attend the exclusive Indy Fab Party last night that opened their weekend long gallery show. I was instantly blown away by the presentation and organization of the event. The bikes were all beautifully displayed either hung from the high ceilings or on wooden platforms, with spot lighting accentuating the amazing handmade frames. The attention to detail was palpable in the lug work all the way down to the fender supports of the commuter bikes. It was also great to see all of the employees there who were obviously proud of the amazing company they are apart of. Luckily I got to take a few shots before I succumbed to the mingling that is inevitable at these events, bike talk, bike talk, and more bike talk. It did feel good to be surrounded by a group of people with so much passion for bicycles. Racers, framebuilders, shop owners, magazine editors, photographers all deeply rooted in the New England cycling community and all at the same place at the same time. I strongly recommend stopping by the show, you won’t regret it! The show is viewable by the public today(2/21) and tomorrow(2/22) from 12-5pm at 132 brookline ave in Boston.
