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.

    Lucky you Brad. Saw this bike and the Geekhouse guys on Saturday. Nice bike and pretty good fellows to chat with. They were very excited about this bike (along with the rest of their collection – who couldn’t like someone with a Jameson bottle in a bottle cage?).

    Lovely job they’ve done. First time I’ve seen disc guards like that and the curved seat tube is tasty.

    Congrats!

    I think those disc guards are really nice. I noticed they are not welded on the frame, but can be taken off/replaced.

    this is great, but when i first saw the rear shot of this bike, i thought the seat cluster and the head tube had a access holes to the hollow TT, allowing you to put your mallet through. i’m a little disappointed, but that would probably compromise structural integrity more than a little.

    Amazing bike but the home town colors are pure evil.
