I love these videos of Paul Price, the owner of Paul Component Engineering. There’s something entertaining about listening to people talk about their bikes. Even if it’s a “plastic bastard.” Also, I can attest to how much the Jones bars rule with this Paul setup!
Paul Component’s new Set N Forget thru-axles come in so many varieties to fit all the various configurations for thru-axles that you need to measure your bike before ordering a set. Here’s a video to walk you thru that process.
The long-awaited, made in Chico, Paul Set n Forget thru-axles are now in stock. Yes, all hundred or so variations in axle length and threading are available for your thru-axle bike. Head over to Paul to check out stock, pricing and how to measure your bike for a set.
Those, Chico, California-made, super stoppy and stiff cable-actuated disc brakes are back… in black. All black. If you’re into murdering out your components, don’t overlook these. These all-black PAUL Klampers are in stock now. Yep, that’s right. No wait times. Head over to PAUL to check them out.
Yes, two Paul posts in one week but I missed this one while I was in Utah. Enjoy!
Remember way back when we made a small batch of purple Paul touring cantis and moon units? Well, the purple is back and this time its found itself across almost the entire Paul catalog. This special color is in stock now, but it won’t last long. Head to Paul for pricing and availability.
For those fabrication fiends, Paul Component‘s prototype facilities would be heaven on Earth. Follow along as Paul leads us on a guided tour of his personal tool making workshop and shows us the ins and outs of what it takes to manufacture bicycle components in Chico, California.
Ok, maybe this isn’t exactly a Mad Max-level bicycle but it looks like it’d take on a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles.
Bruce Gordon‘s bikes are mythical beasts and finding one used isn’t exactly easy, seeing as how many of Bruce’s customers bought a bike from him for life. Max picked up this bike off Craigslist, in fairly decent condition, yet built with a bunch of random parts and so for the past several months has been tracking down all the parts to make it complete again. That meant locating a Bruce Gordon “Chicken Neck” stem and getting it painted to match, ordering several PAUL component bits, getting a pair of the Bruce Gordon canti brakes and last of all: ordering those Compass Rat Trap Pass 26″ x 2.3″ tires.
The result is one rusty-looking touring bike, with big, plump tires and a riding position that’ll be comfortable for days, yet highly shreddable when need be. Jealousy besets me right now…
Rasta roots run deep in the MTB world… These limited edition #JahBlessed skewers can be ordered through your local Paul dealer, or bought direct on their website.
