Oregon Manifest 2008

Oregon Manifest is now in the books. We had a crisp, sunny, fall weekend to explore Portland’s bike friendly roads and bridges on Yodelicious, the Yahoo mobile blogging bike. Time and again, interested passerbys inquired about Yode. The overwhelming response was “Wait, it’s taking photos and posting them to Flickr? Cool!”
The show itself was more intimate than NAHBs and beautiful work was on display from Map Cycles, Huffnagel, Goodtimes, Ahearne, Scyip and others. I was particularly impressed that the show included more than the frame building community. Local bike artisans had their wares on display like Lemolo Bags, and Rainy Peak Cycles. Aptly named, Teem Beer, ran the beer garden and dressed the part. The Oktoberfest inspired Bike Lederhosen seen here, are hemmed with tubing. Check out our Flickr Set with more photos from the opening night party at Wieden + Kennedy, and the show floor.

Great post, I’m glad people dug the bike. Thanks for bringing her along for the ride, looks like it was a cool event -


I’m not sure if Yode is having THAT good of a time; I mean where’s the drunken, has-been rockstar, strung-out, eating fast-food phase? All in a Motel Six, beer bottles strewn about—also Yode never got flashed Mardi Gras style that I could see . . .
