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!
2018 Specialized Sequoia - my all around gravel-grinding, bike-packing, mixed-surface shred machine.
2011 Raleigh Grand Prix 650b conversion - my "road bike" it's fast and smooth and perfect for rambling around.
2001 Biannchi DISS - Disc Integrated Single Speed. My classic SSMTB shredder/all weather commuter. Did I mention that I've successfully run 26", 27.5", and 700c wheels on it?
