Cool Stuff at Frostbike

Frostbike. It’s part party, part bike industry tradeshow and all fun. Each year, Quality Bicycle Products, the largest distributor for bike shops in the US, invites a handful of media and tons of shop owners to its facilities in Bloomington, just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Once within its walls, attendees get a sneak peek at many of the brands QBP carries’ newest offerings.
This year, we didn’t line anyone up to cover the event, but Kyle was there for his shop, Golden Saddle Cyclery. Because he is a shop owner and a regular contributor to the Radavist, Kyle’s eye for what is “cool” really resonates. You’ll see a lot from the brands commonly featured here on the site and if you’ve got any questions, just drop them in the comments.
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.
