2012 Cirque Du Cyclisme Vintage Bicycle Event

More names and faces:

Mark DiNucci made a great presentation on his evolution in becoming a frame builder and the influences that led him to where he is today.

Eddie Albert did a presentation on the history of New York builders. Much of the information will be in his new book. Look for it to be released next spring.

My sincere apologies to all that I missed. It was difficult to identify folks. I did my best to snoop on conversations to figure out who was who and who belonged to what bikes but I know I missed a lot of people I would like to have met.

A shout to Mike and Joy Flournoy, thanks for the ride Mike. Thanks  to Marty Walsh for the restaurant suggestions! 

I have already found a couple omissions. I forgot to get a shot of Harvey Sachs with his cool 1938 Paramount. I also did not figure out who Karen Rawls was until she started to pull the tags off her bikes at the end of the day!
Nice Assenmacher, Karen.
