by Bike Shop Girl

Thanks to covering the North American Handmade Bicycle Show for I was able to get a few really good one on one interviews with builders that may never of happened. Here is the first with Sacha White of Vanilla Workshop.

    Thanks for posting this. As I was watching this video, I was telling my friend that it looked like an interesting shape, like a motorcycle. And exactly when I said that, Sacha was saying it was like a WWII BMW motorcycle. I wonder if it’s comfortable?

    I really like the commentary. I feel like a lot of bike builders are sort of “hippie” and not practical but Mr. White’s design ideas make perfect sense.

    As I’m watching this, I find that I can’t take my eyes off the video. I’m thinking to myself, “Is this bicycle porn?” :)

    Vanilla has made a beautiful bike – just add a chain guard and I’m sold!

    Does anybody really commute on a hand-made bike?

    The first couple of NAHMBSs were kind of interesting. Now they’re really not. And the most boring thing about it is that so many bike-nerd blogs post nothing but hand made bicycle exotica for weeks, regardless of relevance to the blog’s nominal subject.
