OK, so I'm still a gearhead at heart and this custom bike show was pretty cool! An invitational show featuring some of the best local bike builders in the area. The talent on display was amazing. Rhinegeist was slammed wall to wall with people and cars were backed up a couple blocks looking for parking, luckily it was a warm February day and I rode my bike right up to the door and locked it up. If anything proved how valuable the streetcar is going to be its events like this. A ton of out-of-towners could have jumped on downtown and rode it right up to the door. And talking about out-of-towners, I got a kick out of overhearing one conversation after another about how awesome OTR is and how they never expected the neighborhood to be as cool as it is. Inside, the amount of people walking around with a camera would put the City Flea to shame too. I saw one guy with an old school camera I didn't recognize and made the mistake of asking what he was shooting with. He got all snobby and gave me his life story that ended with the fact he never edits his pictures. I just grinned and thought what ever dude, if you're too lazy to edit your damn pictures you ain't impressing me. And I never did find out what the camera was, it was too cool for him that's for sure.
