Geekhouse NAHBS Polo Bike
Our NAHBS coverage doesn’t usually single out a specific bicycle, but neither of us usually gets to go home with a bike we see at the show. Unlike the dozens of other NAHBS bikes we’ve posted images of over the years, this one is personal. I’ve always wanted a Geekhouse and 2011 is my year, and this is my new polo bike. After a couple of months of back and forth talks the basics came together to form this bike—26″ wheels, dual discs with guards, 135mm front and back spacing for interchangeable wheels, sub 1000mm wheelbase, track bike trail, S+S couplings for travel and black and yellow hometown colors. The Geekhouse crew pulled it all together with a bmx tubeset and their very first box crown fork, certainly making it suitable for even the most physical games on the court. It looks pretty now, but I really can’t wait to get it on the court and ding it up all proper-like.
