In the mid 2000s, mutton chops were in fashion, and nobody made them look as sharp at the front of a cross country race as Geoff Kabush.

Few bike designers can say they've raced as a BMX factory team rider, designed bikes for cross country world champs RAAM champions, and an guy named Lance, and ridden the unforgiving roads of Emporia at Unbound.
