from the show catalog:
The Vanilla Workshop is a community - a collaboration between master fabricators, painters, and wood, leather and metal workers - all working closely together to bring the intelligent, edgy, sexiness of Portland to the rest of the world.

At the heart of the workshop is owner, designer and framemaker Sacha White.

Sacha started building bicycles in 1999. Now, at just 31 years of age, he is a pioneering member of the new generation of framebuilders. He combines his experiences as a cyclist and craftsman to create a bike and a company that reflect hard work, style, and uncomprimising vision.

Although White has only been building for under a decade, he has taken top honors winning "Best in Show" at both the 2005 and 2006 North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

At this year's show, the focus will be on developments from The Vanilla Workshop including Coat, a state of the art, custom paint and powdercoat facility, and Speedvagen - superlight, superbad, steel racing machines.
