Yes - it was Suzanne Carlsen. The website on her card is pokacycle.com. She also did laser cut chain guards for city bikes - very nice work.

Everyone has probably had their fill of NAHBS photos by now - but I just finally uploaded mine to my webshots at http://community.webshots.com/user/rlstankus The show was great fun and it was great to see some people I haven't seen face to face for a while! My pictures were taken with a pocket point and shoot camera and I was struggling to get enough light with the limitations of the lens - so some shots are not as clear as would be ideal. I had to leave Sunday morning - wish I could have had that day to take a few more pics - there was a lot to see.
