Made Bike Show 2023 – Ziedell Yards Portland

The highly anticipated annual Made Bike show, is a must-attend event for bike enthusiasts. With a remarkable lineup of over 200 exhibitors, this showcase promises to offer an unprecedented experience for all attendees. Situated in the industrious setting of Ziedell Yards (formerly a ship building factory), this event is sure to impress with its diverse range of bike-ism all under one roof, making it an event that cannot be missed.

In the realm of bicycles, Eugene builder Rob English has crafted a re-enactment of the Pace MTB RC-100. The original bike, dating back to the mid 1980s, was a square-tubed aluminum marvel that made quite a splash in the world of mountain biking at the time. Now, Rob is back at it with the EC-100, which utilizes chromoly square section steel (externally butted) and restored genuine Pace spec parts. I’m hoping Rob will share his ride report on this unique design of bike


New ways of applying technology are always of interest, and the smart guys Will and Colin of Albatross Bikes have invented what I can only best describe as a modular lower suspension that can easily be incorporated into custom frames, allowing frame builders to concentrate on the frame while providing highly engineered technology to enable full suspension.

On a very pragmatic note, e-bikes are heavy; it’s a fact of life. Ryan and Mateus at Remco Tools have invented a very simple, capable, and affordable motorized bike lift for working on your bike. It can lift up to 100 lbs and has user preset heights (great for bike shops, hint hint). One of the nice design features is that their components are designed to work with other brands’ floor stands and clamps, meaning you don’t have to start all over again. The added bonus is the aesthetic is super clean great and would fit right in with your sleek workshop.


Last but not least, make sure you check out the Ira Ryan Cycles booth. Hot off the press is a bike design that looks to be a lot of fun. The ToPo bike is suited for a variety of use cases, but it oozes fun and gives you even more excuses to ride your bike! This purpose-built hardtail is light, agile, and playful.
