Our Radar Roundup compiles products and videos from the ‘net in an easy-to-digest format. Read on below for today’s findings…

Paul Component Engineering Offers Pewter Anodized Products For the First Time Ever

Paul Component Engineering has never offered pewter as an option to the public yet they have made pewter components before. Namely for one of their machinists named Jim who loved this slate-grey color on Paul’s CNC parts. For the first time ever, Paul is offering up its entire catalog in a beautiful pewter color with a flat finish. These parts look like they belong on a space shuttle!

This won’t be an evergreen offering, instead once they’re gone, they’re gone, so roll on over to Paul to pick up some blingy bits.


Breadwinner Cycles Bread and Butter: A-Road Bike $5,900

Breadwinner Cycles is baking it down to basics and making it easy. The Portland-based framebuilders are making Bread & Butter. Consider this an amuse-bouche to the world of premium handbuilt bicycles. Made by hand in the USA.

All of Breadwinner’s bikes have always sported the finest Columbus steel tubing, beautiful modern-classic paint, and fully customized components packages. These full custom bikes will always be the foundation of what the brand loves about making bicycles, but they’ve decided that it’s time to unveil a bike for riders who aren’t quite ready for such a complicated project.

B&B A-Road starts at just $5,900!

Despite the low price, ride assured that this bike is 100% Breadwinner.

The B&B incorporates our ride-tuned blend of premium Italian super-steel from Columbus. Riders should expect the same spectacular ride quality that we’ve staked our name on for the last 10 years, with sharp but well-balanced endurance road geometry and six stock sizes ranging from 49 to 61 cm. This is a thoroughly modern road bike that will open doors for exploration whether its an intimidating stretch of underbiking or a new route to the BAGL shop.

(No, that wasn’t a typo. Just an additional teaser..)

Curve Cycling GMX+ Steel $6,649

Built on the success of its titanium GMX+ cousin, Curve is proud to present the GMX+ Steel. After three years of development and testing, Curve’s steel bikepacking bike is finally available in two colorways: Nitro Chocolate and Roadhouse Pink.

The GMX+ is inspired by the intrepid Overlanders of the 1890s, who covered incredible distances across the harsh Australian outback without support. We have designed a bike that can do the same, but with much more ease, using today’s modern technology. The GMX+ is an adventure bike designed with wide tire clearance thanks to our innovative carbon fork, ultra-wide drop bars for stability, numerous mounting points, and generous amounts of room for carrying water or other gear.
