To say Geekhouse has some repeat customers might be an understatement, considering the past few years have all shown bikes built for John Watson. And to say they have a wide range of similar bikes would also be an understatement, albeit a weird one. Over the years, we’ve seen the Brentwood city/porteur bike (with racks), the Hopedale gravel road bike (with racks), and now this Woodville touring bike. With racks. All similar at first glance, but as with all fine things, the devil’s in the details.
BIKERUMOR: What are your main building materials?
MARTY: Our main building material is steel. Preferably OX Platinum tubing from True Temper, because steel is real!
BIKERUMOR: What’s new with your company since NAHBS last year?
MARTY: As of 2014 I am officially a 1.5 man show. I’m doing all the fabrication myself while Katty Walsh-Motes [no relation] does…pretty much everything that’s not fabrication.
