For the next few days leading up to Interbike, I’ll be on the road. Kyle and Ty from Golden Saddle, Sean from Team Dream and myself will be trekking out to Vegas via a few choice trail systems. While we’re on the road, we’ll be documenting the shenanigans thanks to Impossible Project‘s instant film and Mission Workshop / Acre‘s kick-ass gear!

If I get ahold of WiFi, I’ll be updating the site, if not, expect everything to resume with Interbike coverage on Tuesday.

Paul Component: Klamper Road and Cross Disc Brakes Coming Soon
PAUL_Klamper-discbrakes

“If disc brakes were meant for road and cross bikes, Paul would have made them…”

Truth is truth and I’ve seen the light. Literally. I have a set of these and unfortunately, I didn’t have time to put any miles on them yet but I can assure you, they look and feel amazing. Like all of Paul’s brakes, they’re machined and finished to the highest of standards.

You should know however, that Paul is marketing these for road and cross bikes only at the time being…

Expect a review once I get back to Austin and if you’re going to Interbike, roll through their booth 15030.
