NAHBS Whos Who?

So you know that Chris King and Richard Sachs do different things, but can you tell one from the other? Would you Know that you are going to talk to Karl Strong while walking right Past Chris Inglehart. When you cut in line for a free beer, did you know that was Steven Bilenky and Henry James you just stepped in front of?  If you were concerned with walking into a room of “famous” bike folks, and not having a clue about who you were walking past, I have built a brief and totally incomplete list of who you should know and what they look like. Hopefully you get to see some of these luminaries and maybe you will thank me for knowing who these people really are.

    Very good. I like that Curtis Ingliss and Christopher Igleheart got condensed into “Curt Ingleheart” too funny.

    Great idea though.
