Congratulations Aaron!

Aaron Dykstra, a PWP participant before he and his wife Michelle moved back home to Virginia, won Best New Builder at the Shimano North American Handmade Bike Show this weekend.
Quoting from the NAHBS website: "His Six-Eleven Bicycles are named after a famous steam engine built in Roanoke, VA, the base of this company. 'This bicycle is inspired by the aesthetic of the six-eleven steam engine, which is the pride of Roanoke. It seemed fitting that I should make it a track bike, and I've added a small grille to the top of the head tube, and the serial number plate is derived from the train too,' said Dykstra"
So cool.
