on’t buy your bike off the rack before checking out the little-known Geekhouse Bikes, which creates sleek, slightly retro custom-made steel-framed fixed-speed, cyclocross, road, and touring bicycles out of a tucked-away shop at scattershot hours. The custom design and fabrication process includes a special environmentally friendly “sugar coat” coloring technique that produces vibrant hues. Founder Marty Walsh and his team have fans and buyers among artists and cyclists all over the world, but are mostly unknown around their hometown. Templeton
