NAHBS (North American Handmade Bicycle Show) was held last weekend in Louisville, KY. The show was excellent as usual, with the additional of a very interesting new E-bike motor from Shimano. The show included several bikes with the new STEPS E-bike motor made by Shimano, also featuring their internally geared hubs, and of course a Gates Carbon Drive belt drive.
Kentucky in special to Gates, as our Poly Chain plant (the belt used in Gates Carbon Drive) is located in Elizabethtown, just a little south of Louisville.
