    Merry Christmas to Me

    Well, it's actually a 30th birthday present for myself.


    Should be back from the paint shop in a couple weeks, and hopefully built up early next year.

    yeah, I'm really excited. The 6 month wait went too fast. I don't even have all my parts together yet!

    Will do. Frame is at the powder shop as we speak, wheels are getting laced, parts are in the mail. Should hopefully have her built in a week or 2.

    That is hot- definitely a one-of-a-kind bike!

    Are the flowers painted on, or just stickers?

    Just arrived at the Patrick Cycles global headquarters yesterday from the powdercoat shop. Picking up the BB and tires today, and picking up the frame. All the other parts are in my garage waiting. Should have it done Sunday afternoon.

    that is beautiful, Greg is starting my frame next!!! I ordered mine in july and can't wait to see it in progress, I have known Greg for a few years and have been to his rally in Santa Cruz a couple times, its a great HUGE group ride averages 30-50 people.

    I know once I get my new SS frame I am going to want him to build me a Road bike, than a cross bike, than a track bike, than maybe a geared 29er

    Kev1n, do you live down in the Bay Area? have you been to Gregs rally before its a blast if your local, a group of us make the drive from Sacramento just for the post ride BBQ and party, but we do enjoy the ride as well

    I am local. I stopped by his place yesterday to pick up the frame. Haven't been to a rally, but I'll definitely check out the next one.

    Nice looking bike.

    But - if you move your rear wheel any further forward (with those tires) - will the tire rub the seatstay bridge???

    very nice, Greg should have my frame in the jig ready to go, hopefully everything will go smoothly and it will be off to powder by the beginning of March. I will post up pics of mine complete once I get it built.

    I can buy a decent used car with what I am spending on my Patrick

    With the slider all the way in, the tire still clears the bridge. The paragon sliders were easy to set up, and haven't moved since then.
