Obama Bike by Geek House

Got an email from Marty Walsh @
GeekHouse earlier today about his collaborative project with Animal NY and Dan Funderburgh to raise monies for the Obama campaign. Marty et al, have built a bike themed around the Obama color scheme (say colorways and I'll get slappy with you) using the new sublimated powder coat thechnique that Marty showcased on the Bandana bike earlier in the year. Its pretty cool and I'm wondering all over the place if there is a way that I can use this new technology in conjunction with ELVS. The bike is on eBay now.

Obama Bike
The exclusive, fixed gear masterpiece was hand-built and features original sublimated graphics on the frame and Velocity Deep V wheelset, including a remixed Obama chainring logo on the front. The velodrome-ready bike sports a 55cm Geekhouse Custom 'Rockcity' Frame track frame with 'Yo Marty' fork, a curved seat tube, and comes fully loaded with the following parts:
  • Thomson Stem and Post
  • SDG Saddle
  • Tioga Headset
  • Sugino Messenger Cranks/Ring
  • MKS Sylvan Track Pedals/Clips
  • Continental Tires
