2023 MADE Bike Show: Patrick from PAUL’s SE Lager Mullet Bike

We’re here at the 2023 MADE Show and will be rolling out unique, custom bikes over the next week. Before we jump into the show bikes, we wanted to showcase Patrick‘s mullet bike. Patrick is a machinist at PAUL Component Engineering and he brought his SE Lager out to Portland to pedal around the Rose City while the show is going on. John caught Patrick, fresh out of bed this morning, pre-coffee and all to document this illustrious machine of beausage and beautiful PAUL Parts, so let’s check it out below.

In 2007, during the peak fixie era, Patrick bought this SE Lager a few months before he began his summer internship at PAUL. He was the Chico, California-based component manufacturer’s final intern. He later began working full time at PAUL in March of 2012. Having just hit his 10-year anniversary with PAUL, Patrick has been a key cog in the PAUL component machine.

This bike is a wonderful example of how a machinist who makes some of the finest components in the world builds up his commuter/bar bike/bike polo/gravel machine, finding one-off, blemished components that still get’er done.

The Origin 8 fork sports a 26″ SUN Rhino Lite rim laced to a PAUL hub with a 26″ Minion tire.

We’ll be rolling out more 2023 MADE Bike Show coverage over the next week, so stay tuned!
