Builder News: #CustomSILCA Award for NAHBS 2019


Calling all NAHBS 2019 Builders!

We’re excited to announce that the #CustomSILCA award is coming back to NAHBS 2019. As a brand that has been making bicycle tools for over a century, SILCA products are regularly featured on builds of every cycling discipline. The #CustomSILCA award recognizes the handmade frame builder who best incorporates SILCA product into their NAHBS build.

SILCA is pleased to offer NAHBS builders new products to customize, special discounted pricing, and free customization on their SICURO Titanium Bottle Cages (must purchase two or more for your build). The selected winner will receive ten of SILCA's brand new Ypsilon Home Kits that they'll customize with your logo or artwork.

To enter the contest, builders must feature a SILCA product on their NAHBS build at the 2019 show. SILCA will judge the builds for this award and will consider the paint job, the number of SILCA products incorporated into the build, creativity, and the overall quality of the full build.

The inaugural #CustomSILCA Award in 2018 was a great success and we're excited to announce its return for NAHBS 2019. Place your SILCA order soon to ensure there's enough time to bring your idea to life.

** Builders can contact Daniel Bartholomew at for a price list and to place an order. **


SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy. SILCA was the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first to produce a true ‘high-pressure’ frame pump and the first to work with revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation. Today SILCA is located in Indianapolis, IN where it continues to build iconic products that utilize the finest materials and craftsmanship available.
