Assless, Hardass and Ultimate Tight Ass (UTA)

It was exciting to drive to Brooklyn last weekend and even more exciting to stop by Warsaw Concert Hall where the first annual Bike Cult Show in NYC took place.  It was thrilling to meet local bike builders as well as to see their work.  The venue was great and the bikes were amazing!

I have to mention about three bikes, Assless, Hardass and UTA (Ultimate Tight Ass) built by Ezra Caldwell of Fast Boy Cycles that were at the show.  To learn more, watch Ezra’s story in this short film through the tale of his three bikes:

Hand-Made Bicycle Show in NYC

Bike CultBike Cult, hand-made bicycle show arrives to NYC.  I am  taking my family to see the Bike Cult Show during the Labor Day weekend.  Hopefully, it will be an annual event.  So, support the local bike builders by showing up at the event!  If you are in the area or have no plans for the Labor Day weekend, go out and meet some of the finest craftsmen in the world who make living building custom bikes out of the molten steel.  Even if you are not a bike enthusiast, as long as you appreciate art, beauty and craftsmanship, Bike Cult Show will be a good place to spend few hours.

The show will be held in Brooklyn at Williamsburg’s landmark Warsaw Concert Hall, Polish National Home.  About twenty bicycle builders will present their custom cycling machines fabricated using various materials and methods of constructions.

Save the date for the first annual Bike Cult Show in Brooklyn!  The show begins on Friday, August 30th at 2pm and continues through Saturday, with builders’ open house day on Sunday.  For more information visit www.bikecultshow.com.
