The Outspoken Cyclist – 02/23/2013

The 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show is in full swing as of this writing, and Diane is not only attending, she’s participating in Smoked Out Live at the Framebuilder’s Party on Saturday night. You can attend virtually at overthetopcycling.com.

To get us in the mood for this evening, Diane chats up Josh “Too Tall” Symonds from Velocipede Salon. Always irreverent and unpredictable, Josh will be one of those holding court at tonight’s event.

There is lots of news in this week’s show, followed by a deep dive into the world of bicycle racing memorabilia with Brett Horton. Brett is the curator of the Horton Collection, an outstanding, um, collection of jerseys, posters, bike and other physical artifacts from bicycle racing’s golden age. Brett is a former racer himself, who has honed the art of finessing top pros like Eddy Mercx out of some of their prized memorabilia.
