07 05 26 Bicycle Fetish Day and Best Hand Built Bike!

A few weekend ago I stopped by the Bicycle Fetish Day Block Party in Williamsburg with Margie.  This was the place to gawk at cool/crazy/loud/expensive bicycles.  I had only planned on staying a couple of hours until I learned that they were holding an open contest for best bikes in various categories.  Categories included best track bike, best heavy bike, ugliest bike, best renovated bike, most unusual, etc..  I entered my bike and gave my story to a number of judges.  When they started to announce the winners I listened carefully.  To my dissmay, best track bike was awarded to some guy who attached a bottle opener where his water bottle cage usually goes.  But all was not lost.  As the emcee began to describe the next awardee, I realized that she was giving my story.   Sure enough, moments later I was holding a City Reliquary Museum ribbon for Best Hand Built Bike!  Needless to say, its quite satisfying to have my dream bike recognized by a group of my Brooklyn bike nerd peers.  THANKS NYC!
