Patrick's the name and bikes are my game! Not so much riding them, rather tinkering, building, modding, day dreaming, and fixing. Don't get me wrong, I love my saddle time. You'll probably find me in the shop talking about bar-end shifters and fixed gears instead of out on a group ride. That's not to say I'm all talk. I ride a bike every day, even if it's just to get to work or grab a cup of coffee. I commute 365 and I wouldn't have it any other way! I also get big kicks out of alleycat races, trail riding, late night urban goof-sessions, and polo.
I'm the resident 'fixie fool' at GNBC, and singlespeed mountain bike fan, and 650b conversion advocate, and... If you have a project that might fall outside of the parameters of our "normal" service offerings (don't get me wrong, we do it all!) let me know. I have a lot of fun customizing bikes and assembling unique, functional, cohesive rides. If you want to put your own personal spin on one of our many bikes, I'd love to help you figure it out!
2015 Bianchi Super Pista w/Dura Ace drivetrain - obviously I need high-end track components to get around Fargo!
2011 Raleigh Grand Prix 650b conversion - my "road bike" it's fast and smooth and perfect for rambling around.
2008 Surly Karate Monkey - sometimes SS, sometimes geared, sometimes rigid, sometimes with a suspension fork, sometimes with a rack. Always fun!
1991 Specialized Rockhopper Comp - I put a coaster brake rear wheel on it. It's stupid fun... or maybe it's just stupid?
