Geekhouse Bikes: Gavin’s Rockcity Nov 17, 2010


Now that’s nice. This bike has a bit of a story attached to it. When I was in Boston, lamping around at the Geekhouse HQ, Marty and Greg told me about how Gavin’s Rockcity was a first for them. They kept calling it a Bike Build 2.0. First, they gave Gavin a tour of the shop via a webcam and the entire bike was designed via Skype. Since Gavin was in London at the time, various hiccups took place throughout the process. One night he was drunk and wired them the money for the components in GBP instead of USD. OOF!

Check out more photos of Gavin’s Rockcity at the Geekhouse Flickr. Awesome.

  • Except for the frame and forks, it’s frightening how close this bike is to my build. Right down to the HPlusSon Rims, and the Bolt on rear cog.

    Fella has good taste. :)

  • I love how the dude from London went with British Racing Green!

  • This is also only the second bike (the first one was Jason’s GH from NAHBS 2010) to feature the matching fork dropouts that go with the adjustable rears. It’s about time, Marty.

    Nice looking ride, maybe swap out the saddle though ?

  • Yeah, God forbid he rides what he wants!

    Awesome indeed. HPlusSon rims seal the deal.
