Paul Component Engineering: Dropper Post Trigger

This has been in the works for a while. Paul Component Engineering likes to make the best possible product they can when a new item hits their catalog. The team wanted to make the toughest, most precisely machined, most adjustable dropper trigger on the market. This dropper lever has stacked dual sealed cartridge bearings, two different cable clamp options, a barrel adjuster, and a hinged clamp. Machined by Paul Component Engineering in Chico California to the highest tolerances. These are in stock in three finishes, black, silver, or polished, and are in stock now at Paul Component Engineering.

The Thule Group Acquires Tepui Tents

SNews reports that the Thule Group has acquired Tepui, our go-to rooftop tent setup. We love the brand and many of its employees are cyclists, who spend their weekends supporting such events as Grinduro and Lost and Found. We’re stoked for Tepui and we’re hoping that the brand doesn’t dissolve entirely into the Thule brand. Hopefully what this does mean is better distribution and more product availability. We’d love some new colors, too!

Big (Lines) in Japan

Mountain biking in Japan is a relatively new sport. The rules for riding on singletrack aren’t really well established, yet that is changing.

Wheels and Weddings in Oklahoma

“In Oklahoma, you learn to make a lot out of a little…. Turns out that the unfortunate weather that scrambled our storyboards helped us tell a truer story. Ask around about the Land Run 100, and you’ll learn that we know how to put together an epic ride or two in Oklahoma, but a more honest reflection of our community of bike riders is found in those everyday rides that go according to plan or don’t, while the people sharing them barely notice the difference.” -Seth Wood

Jay Young is the Winner of the Land Run 100 Giveaway!

After very little deliberation, the crew at District Bicycles chose Jay’s comment as the winner of our Land Run 100 giveaway. There were tons of comments to choose from but something about Jay’s comment really resonated with the team.

“One of the reasons why I want to attempt the Land Run 100 is because it scares the hell out me, but in a good way. For me, it’s like that horror movie thing when you’re a kid — you don’t want to watch, but you can’t stop. I’m the same way with Land Run. I don’t know if I can do it, I might not finish, but I can’t get it out of my head that I have to at least try. Another reason? The good vibes associated with Land Run and District Bicycles. You’ve got a great thing going on down there and I hope to be a part of it in March. Cheers, folks.”

We’re stoked to be a part of this and we’ll be sending Jay a package to make sure he’s kitted out for the weekend events. If you have some free time, head over to the post and read through the comments. They’re really great! If you commented, thank you! If you’re going to Land Run this year, make sure to give Jay some words of encouragement as he takes on 100 miles of Oklahoma dirt.

The Grand Loop in New Zealand

The top of the South Island of New Zealand has rapidly become a destination for backcountry cyclists. Like all good ideas, this one, to ride the Old Ghost Road and Heaphy Track in one grand loop, was thrown about over a few beers in a bike shop in Richmond, Nelson. Two riders, Damian Stones and Erik Hall completed this 6-day adventure in mid-winter on gravel bikes. Recent snowfalls and a first bike packing trip for Erik, made this journey all the more challenging.

In Stock the Radavist Wool Socks in Jasper Green and Red

Wool socks are a cycling apparel staple. Wear them year round and they’ll wick sweat in the summer and provide warmth in the winter. We love DeFeet’s wool socks because they blend nylon and polyester in their wool for increased durability and lifespan. We’ve got two color options this year, inspired by one of our favorite minerals found in the American West, green Jasper and red Jasper.

Each sock has our jackal on the side and the Radavist script logo on the foot. Made in the USA by DeFeet and in stock now at the Radavist Web Shop. We also restocked the long sleeve t-shirts in all sizes.

Please note: we will try our hardest to get these socks to you before Christmas, but there is no way to guarantee delivery before December 25th. Thanks for understanding!

Cover photo by Matthew Roebke

2018 has been a whirlwind of a year, but in that chaos rose an awareness for WTF and POC in the cycling industry. With an increased traction and momentum, brands and magazines are finally filling their pages and covers with more than your standard white dude. Case in point is Mountain Flyer’s new cover.

Not Quite Out of the Woods

This is a very moving moment captured in video…

“I hope this film inspires other parents to provide their kids with experiences of adventure through bikepacking, and cycling in general. And for parents of kids undergoing medical treatment, I hope Eleanor’s smile and positive attitude encourages hope and strength, proving that happiness is found in pushing limits and seeking new experiences.” Adin Maynard, Eleanor’s dad.
