From the city's hills to the shoreline trails, a vibrant history of bicycle culture has grown out of the terrain of the Bay Area.
Mountain biking was created and perfected on the trails of Mount Tam. Industries have sprung up around these and other developments. The innovation continues today in both mass-market and bespoke cycles. Master frame builders continue to push the envelopes of technology, craft, and form. In this talk, they will discuss their provenance, craft, and details.
