DailyDerailleur

Matt Cardinal’s Daily Derailleur Instagram illustrations are amazing and after many requests, he’s begun putting them on t-shirts. So far, a Shimano shirt has popped up, with what appears to be a Paul derailleur shirt in queue. Head over to Matt’s Instagram to follow the sales and TeeSpring to order one of the Shimano shirts.

Edit: Matt just updated the TeeSpring site to include a web store with three designs, including the Paul derailleur.

What is This, Eddy Merckx?
EddyMerckx70

So, a reader sent this over, with the subject line “I think this is ok to share” and all that was in the body was this photo. A quick glance at the Eddy Merckx Facebook reveals it’s a tig-welded steel bike, commemorating Eddy’s 70th birthday, which would make sense, but details like pricepoint, country of origin, tubing, etc, etc, etc, seem to be missing.

Personally, I’d rather see a lugged Columbus frame with a steel fork. As far as pricepoint, I’m gonna guess this bike is upwards of $10k, complete… Does anyone have any more information on this?

Turns out, Peloton has the full scoop. Head over there to see more information. It’s stainless steel, hence the tig welding and made in Belgium. Oh and it’s $17k!

Paul Components: New MicroShift Thumbie and 31.8 Drop Bar Shifter Adapters
unnamed (2)

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.

Hope Tech: It’s Grim Up North – Showcases New Cranks

Hope’s made in the UK products are top notch and to help create a buzz around their new cranks, they went up North to ride in what many would consider grim conditions with team riders Craig Evans and Sam Flanagan. I’m liking what I see with those cranks, and everything in Hope’s catalog these days. They really are putting in solid work.

Check out a great feature on the Hope Cranks at their site. Availability is slated for late January.

Slawta has created some of the most unique and ostentatious frame designs under his moniker Land Shark. Every time I see one of his works of art, I’m completely mesmerized, especially when neon paint is involved. Kyle recently shot this unique triple triangle track and I don’t wanna give too much of it away, so you’ll have to head over to Trackosaurus Rex to see the rest.
