For all the dirt droppers and bike packers, Paul Components just released something special that’s sure to warm up your current build project with golden rays from Chico, California… Here’s the one-two from Paul himself:
“PAUL Component Engineering has released not one, but TWO new shifter adaptors. One is for MicroShift bar-end shifters (found on many new SURLY bikes); PAUL has designed a MicroShift Thumbie that will allow riders to use MicroShift bar-end shifters on a flat bar. The adaptors will be sold as singles or pairs. MSRP for the pair is $74.00 and singles are $39.00. These weigh in at 60g per pair.
The other new PAUL adaptor allows for the use of the SRAM trigger shifters on a 31.8 drop bar. This idea was born from a desire to run the awesome 10-42 cassette on drop bar bikes, a 420% gain ratio. These adaptors mount on the 31.8 bulge portion of the bar next to the stem. MSRP on this game changer is $41.00. Weight is 22g.”
420% is proof that the dirt gods love gain ratios. See these two shifter adapters at Paul.
