Special Edition PAUL Somethin’ Somethin’ For the Radavist

Over in Chico, Travis from PAUL had an idea, inspired from a certain band from the 80’s and wanted to do a fun product for the readers of this website. Splatter ano, like this band, had its heyday in the 1980’s and without giving you a direct link, if you search for the band’s name this color combination represents, it’ll take you to a special page where you can pick one of these special Somethin’ Somethin’ up.

We’ll give you two hints. The first being: this band was formed by two brothers, who were born in the Netherlands and moved to Pasadena, California in the early 60’s. The second: two lead singers were prominent during this band’s lifespan, which continues today.

If you head to PAUL and add in the answer to the search bar, it’ll take you straight to the product. For whatever reason, y’all can’t figure this out, express your concern in the comments…

Golden Saddle Rides: Hunter Cycles Rigid 29r

I’ve long admired the work of Rick Hunter, yet have never been able to get ahold of one in my size. Especially since he has closed his order queue. My thoughts were, one day a frame would pop up in my size and I’d have to swoop on it. That’s what happened, in a nutshell, when I drove up to Chico, California to hang out with Paul Component Engineering for a few days. The trip coincided with the recent Paul Camp, a media gathering at the Paul shop, featuring eleven bikes, built by select framebuilders, all around a joint theme: a monster cross or mountain bike. Oh, and the bikes had to use the same color scheme: red, white and blue. As a group, these bikes were marvelous and I had a blast both riding and photographing them, especially this very frame… (more…)
