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.

Affinity Cycles’ New Kits
Affinity_Endo_IMG_1491

Affinity Cycles from Brooklyn has a new kit up for pre-order:

“In collaboration with the most niche cycling kit manufacturer in the business Endo Customs, Affinity is proud to announce the long awaited release of our pro track team kit. Endo only takes on a select batch of projects each year so we couldn’t be more hyped offering this up to our biggest fans.

So when the first one rolled off the line we asked NYC export and OG Affinity Employee Ben Foster (not the movie star Ben Foster but the fast as shit neo pro roadie) to pick it up right from Endo’s Downtown LA shop.

The pre order is open for 2 weeks only beginning today September 4th until the 18th of September!!”

Pre-order a kit at Affinity.
