Great color choices and I dig the graphics on some of the rides. Can you tell us how that's done? Vinyl?

Geekhouse in the madhouse... At the moment we have a good mix of commuter bikes, touring bikes, and CX bikes. Next year we'll be switching up our line a little bit though and adding a new frame model. Stay tuned for that.

The majority of our bikes are all powder coated. With that we do top-coat vinyl decals. I like this because you can change stickers around over time, get new colors or new additions...

With respect to the Mudville...I know disc tabs are an option. How about if I wanted to pair a Mudville disc with your Yo Marty fork. Do you think a disc option will be in the offering at some point? It looks like the CX Yo Marty is canti only at the moment.

TIA for taking time to consider my questions. Cheers.

Hey Guy!
We're a custom shop to we could do a 650b MTB at any point. I just quoted one for a guy the other day though! We also have some pretty nice 29ers on order, including one for myself. I'm excited about re-vamping this model a bit for the current year, and can't wait to get back to shredding the gnar a bit myself!

We do 'Yo Marty' disc forks pretty frequently, so that certainly is an option. The only issue with that is we don't have a way to make it look super flush with the 44mm Head Tube. The 2013 Team Mudville will be coming out with 44mm HT and discs, with a custom painted ENVE disc fork. I'm excited for these for sure. We're currently planning on starting batches of these bikes for June of 2013, so if you'd like a CX for next year get in touch with us soon.
Thanks!

First, thank-you for taking time to answer my questions. I do appreciate it.

Second, the 2013 Mudville sounds awesome man. That sounds like it will be a fabulous machine. I will be staying tuned for more info. You have me excited. That is very tempting man...

Thanks again.

Guy

No prob man, we try to make them better and better every year. I learned a lot this year from our drop-out redesign and the different tubing choices. I'm confident that these next builds will be the best CX bikes we've made yet! Hopefully we'll have one at NAHBS, but we'll have to wait and see...

Yo Marty Disc

William,
Sure, here's a fork we did recently on a rather unique build. This bike was for Rose O. Rose had some hand issues, and after a lot of discussion and a dynamic fitting done with the help of Landry's Boston, we came up this set up. The bike is a 2012 Woodville, with a Sram X-9 build kit, with rise bars and an ergo grip/bar-end set up.
The fork on this bike is a tapered curved blade 'Yo Marty' disc.

Thanks,

-Marty

Marty,
Do you ever see Geekhouse branching out into carbon? If not, why not?

Also, do you think you've found every wacky color in the rainbow, or are you still experimenting to powder coat in new and exotic schemes?

Never say never, I do like carbon a lot... But for now I'm still learning steel (you never stop) and trying to know as much as I can about it, before I try other materials. I think the next step from here would be Ti, but even that will be a while still.

As for colors, there are still a few neon's left to go... I'd also love to incorporate so paint/powder combo's so we'll play around with that next year for sure. We also do offer custom paint through Circle A, but very few people opt for that on our frames.

I think about John's stolen purple Geekhouse all the time and have a feeling I'm going to see it someday around Austin and have to kick someone's ass. Glad you guys were able to build him another.

^John's bike getting stolen is a bummer for sure. There's no way that bike can be riding around somewhere without someone noticing it. For all we know someone just took it for a joyride and ditched in the woods somewhere. Keep your eyes peeled Austin! Also, thank goodness for insurance! John's new bike will be a bit different, but a nice ride for sure...
