It’s a shame that the Builder’s Roundup at ENVE wasn’t a bigger, more public event, but I can’t complain because, Delta Variant, donchaknow. That’s my inclusive way of lamenting the fact that I wasn’t there to see each of these bikes in person.
I’ve been writing about custom frame builders since the early 1990s. I’ve been to a number of events that brought together multiple builders to show off bikes. The collection presented in Provo, Utah, is arguably the finest concentration of great bikes I’ve ever seen. I put this ahead of NAHBS for the simple reason that the clarity of presentation was uniform—one bike—and so most builders took it as an invitation to do what they are known for.
