Patrick and his 80s Nishiki single-speed conversion.

Rides an 80s Nishiki single-speed conversion.
Shot on Ortega Street in Santa Barbara, CA.

I first met Patrick when he was in our shop a while ago trying to get us to remove an old rusted seat post from his bicycle frame. The post was completely seized and we nearly destroyed his frame attempting to get it out. We had an old Nishiki frame (that was too large) in storage that we just gave to him. We felt that we owed it to him since the mechanic promised him he could remove the post. Well, now we see Patrick rolling around on this frame and he says that he’s gotten quite used to it. In fact, he tells us that he likes it better. He also has an old aluminum mountain bike that he has painted pink. Let’s face it: Patrick is just cool.
