Well guys, NAHBS is finally here, our booth made it across country, and is set up and ready to go! The show officially starts in a couple hours, and I honestly can’t wait!
And as much as I’d like to take all the credit for these bikes…I can’t. Before the show starts, I just wanted to thank a bunch of people for all their help to get these bikes going this year. First up the Geekhouse team itself, Bradford Smith slaved away on these bikes for us – I couldn’t do it without you, man! No, I literally can’t do it without you! Also special thanks to Katty Walsh and Cait Dooley for all their help organizing the show, keeping all office work flowing, keeping my ADHD on track, and of course, supplying us with yummy cookies! More thanks below the bikes…
Our 2013 Mudville Single Speed, Disc, Belt-Drive is first up (what a mouth full!), and most likely our show stopper! I owe a huge debt to Adria Klora for designing a beautiful new decal set for our 2013 product line, included on this bike. Adria is a talented designer, who loves my frantic 11pm phone calls!
Also, thank you to Jordan Low for his beautiful paint job on our Mudville CX! Jordan really set the bar high for us in 2013, and I can’t wait for more of this to come Fall 2013. Check out more of his work on flickr.
Big shout out to the man himself, Justin Spinelli from Luxe Wheel Works, on the exquisite wheels on the Mudville: carbon Corima rims to pink single speed disc King hubs. Justin, you really came through on this man, thank you SO much!
We’ve re-vamped and come up with this additional model for our 2013 line. The Brentwood is now our go-to City/Porter bike. Also, featuring for the first time a Geekhouse custom front Rack, and Stem.
Of course thanks to my favorite engineer/designer extraordinaire Aaron Panone. Who has re-imagined our Manifest chain guard, beautiful and sleek, sir!
At the last minute we had a huge hand from Tom Estrada of Superb and the Geekhouse CX team. Tom totally came through on polishing the handlebar and chainguard on the Brentwood, as well as helping me building the shipping crate. You should have seen the size of the blister on his thumb. You rock, man!
Finally, we have re-imagined the Hopedale model for 2013. Rather than a pure racing road frame, we’re transforming it to a more all-around Dirt Road/Rando bicycle. This bike was Brad’s baby, creating a beautiful rack and stem all on his own. As well as insisting we could fit 30c tires on standard Force caliper brakes. Bravo man, this bike came out SO nice, I’m proud of you bro!
Heather Mcgrath came through on the last second before packing the bikes on these beautiful photos of the bicycles. Heather is a talented photographer who can be seen in Bicycle Magazine and Embrocation Cycling Journal.
Last big shout out is the John Watson, who has featured all of Heather photos on a gallery up on ProllyisnotProbably.com follow that link, or this one here to check out all the detailed shots of the 2013 Geekhouse NAHBS bikes. Thanks guys, see you at the show!!!
