Portland builders took home two coveted awards at the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Austin.

Nathan Meschke and Matt Cardinal of Signal Cycles won ‘Best City Bike,’ and Mark DiNucci won ‘Best of Show.’

Mark DiNucci is a builder’s builder. His work is clean and elegant and his bikes show a masterful attention to detail.
