Geekhouse Rando

Here's my new bike!

This model is officially called the "Deerfield", but it was built from the ground up per my geometry, tire clearance, and tubing specs. Low trail, clearance for ~2.1" tires, and True Temper Ox Platinum with single oversize 7-4-7 main tubes. I believe it's Marty's first low trail bike (~37mm). It's built to handle everything from long brevets to fire service roads to overnight camping trips - not dissimilar to the Elephant NFE.

It has been built up for less than a week and I've already taken the bike out on it's first big ride - the SIR "Island Views" 300k this past Saturday. It's a really good bike!

SO HOT

The taller painted stem is a great way to bring the bars up a bit higher, keep the standover, and still look totally right. Custom rack too?

Looks to be Babyshoes and a CycleFab portuer rack. Such a sweet bike. You knew what you wanted and had it executed. I love it.

I really dig this. I've been thinking about a Deerfield myself. What bars are those?
