Saw VII

Say goodbye to our defunct WordPress blog, the inability to comment on our hilarious and relevant posts, and everything you hate about this website (I’m happiest to say goodbye to this banner) and head on over to the all-in-one new Geekhouse site at www.GeekhouseBikes.com.

We’re migrated the blog over to the front page, we’ve got a great webstore, new bikes, and more-than once a month posts! But don’t take my word for it…

Go check it out!

Finally grabbed some shots of Erik’s Rockcity. The raw finish and white components were so much fun to shoot in the 12+ inches of snow on the front yard! Click any of the pictures to see the whole Flickr photo set.

Will's Polo Bike  -  Front End

A very Merry Christmas to us all. Our gift to you? These beautiful shots of Will’s S&S polo bike featuring a bevvy of add-ons including curved seat tube, custom mounted brake bosses, S&S couplers, a HUGE Yo Marty fork, and more! Hit the picture to check out the set with tons of pictures of this raw beauty!

Click the pic. to check out Melvin’s new 29er on Flickr! We don’t build too many MTBs these days, what with all the sick fixies we’ve been churning out, but this one was a blast and we hope to build some more soon!

I’ve been using the blicksbagsKingsbury backpack on and off for a few weeks now and I really like this bag. It’s got this great extremely sturdy construction and compliant shape. The square/rectangular/geometric shape of the bag give it a very comfortable feel on the back and makes for great ease of use and comfort when taken off. It wasn’t a tough transition to go from my workhorse Ortlieb to try this because it nails that rigid but comfy shape.

The storage compartment of the bag can be augmented by releasing the two sturdy zippers on either side of the largest pocket. This adds considerably to the net capacity of the bag but also keeps it manageable and attractive when not in use; much like that Mission Workshop bag- this is a fantastic feature. Hidden on the extend-able sides and inside of the largest compartment is a neon green lining that I simply can’t say No to.

This is the big one for me:

I like LOVE the copious padding on the bottom of the bag. Have you ever dropped your bag off your back, knowing that your laptop was in there, and experienced the subsequent panic “OMG WHAT DID I JUST DO!?!” when you realize that you may have just slammed a corner of your MacBook onto the ground/bench/whatever? Say goodbye to these moments of terror with the extreme buffer on the bottom of the Kingsbury.

Everything else is a mix of classic bike bag “must-haves” like a spot for a U-Lock, key ring loops, and a top notch waterproof lining.

It’s a super bag with some great color and detail choices and I’m officially a fan. Huge thanks to Madeline for sending this guy over and the best of luck to her and Blick’s for a happy future of cyclist-friendly wearable receptacles.

Check out the Blicks Bags website for more. Thanks Madeline!

Two more out the door on the same day! Check out Tom’s 65CM Rockcity and Charlie’s two-tone Complete. on Flickr.

Check out our Flickr for more pictures of Gavin’s Rockcity. This build was a really special one as it was the first that we pulled together for an international customer using Skype. It’s a lot of fun to have the freedom in our work to get creative and personal with our customers. By video-chatting with Gavin using just a few simple web cams and some crafty planning around time zones- he was able to get a real perspective and feel for the shop even though he was across the Atlantic. Not always the case when buying a custom frame from the other side of an ocean.

Now, With Lewis and Gavin’s bikes finished- we’ve got no more customers in the queue to video chat with! So let’s get some more international orders going- I’m looking at you Indonesia.

The 2010 CX Party was a hit. Gavin from good killed it with the tunes, Josh of Arc-en-Ciel brought some of the best Boston sprints time has ever told, Pretty Things provided the beerz, and the Middlesex Lounge put it all under one roof.

We owe a big thanks not only to those who contributed at the party but also to our fantastic sponsors who helped us pull it all together and supported us by sending us all sorts of cool things to throw into the crowd. Here goes: Thanks to SDG, Thomson, Velocity, GU, Boston Rock Gym, Continental Tires, Pretty Things Beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Swrve, and YOU! Thanks for coming, dancing, and being awesome.
