Last night was the New England Builder’s Ball at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The event was a celebration of bicycle framebuilders and an exhibition of their work. It was in partnership with this weekend’s KMC Cyclocross Festival and benefited the East Coast Greenway Alliance.
Horst Engineering and Team Horst Sports were thrilled to have a booth to display and share our Horst Spikes product line. The botanical center was a nice venue that was made all the better by the amazing collection of bespoke bicycle builders.
Horst Engineering has a long history of supplying the bicycle products industry. Company founder, Harry Livingston (born Horst Rolf Liebenstein), apprenticed as a bicycle maker in Germany in the 1920’s and 1930’s. He learned many of his skills working in the bicycle trade. He brought those skills to the USA, when he immigrated in 1938, and subsequently when he founded Horst Engineering in 1946.
Our lineup of sponsored riders includes: Jeremy Powers, Mo Bruno-Roy, Justin Lindine, Cassie Maximenko, Adam Myerson, and the Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld.com Team. We will announce more sponsored riders throughout the cyclocross season.
Horst Engineering is proud to have displayed our parts alongside many of New England’s finest bicycle craftsmen and crafts-women. We donated 10 sets of Horst Spikes for the raffle that also benefitted the East Coast Greenway Alliance. They are a 1% For The Planet approved non-profit and we are members.
