Forager Cycles: New Blue Berry Fundraising Cable Cherries

Remember those Forager Cycles Cable Cherries? These cable ends are reusable, made in the USA, and are a fun way to add color to your cable-actuated brake bikes. Well, this round of Cable Cherries is a collaborative effort between Forager and a local blueberry farm, Bow Hill, who suffered a massive loss recently. A fire started in the refrigerated zone of their production barn and burned nearly all the contents, including a ride-on harvesting machine parked outside. Forager is offering an option to donate at checkout on these new Cable Cherries in hopes to raise money to help out Blue Hill. If you’re looking for a dab of blue on your bike, head to Forager Cycles!

Denis Carrier, aka L’ermitage designed this Paul Touring Canti camp stove as a fun illustration and Paul is asking the question:

If we made a camp stove out of Touring Canti Brakes like this, what would be a clever name? Hell, let’s make it interesting, whoever’s clever name gets the most likes, we’ll send ya a PAUL bottle opener.

Head on over to the Paul Instagram to leave your best comment!

Side note: Do you remember when we collaborated with Paul on limited editon purple Touring Cantis way back when?

OutBraker Allows You to Modulate Your MTB Braking Power

Whether you’re new to MTB riding or have a loved one just getting into the sport, or perhaps you can only brake with one hand, Outbraker has a solution for your hydraulic brakes. The OutBraker was purposely developed to endos over the front wheel and provide stabile braking power. It also allows you to create an optimal braking force when braking by modulating pressure right before the wheel’s lock-up point – that zone that represents the best braking performance.

Their Double system allows riders to maintain perfect braking modulation of both the front and rear brakes with one lever.

This video explains the OutBraker but for more information, head to their website.

Paul Component Engineering’s Limited Edition 30th Anniversary Box Set!

30 years of making dang fine parts in Chico, California is something worth celebrating! Paul Component is celebrating three decades of millin’ metal with this run of limited edition box sets. Included in the hand-numbered kit are 2 Short-Pull I.S. Klamper Brakes, 1 Pair of Short-Pull Brake Levers, 1 Quick Release Seat Collar, and 1 Bottle Opener.

Each part is finished in a beautiful, alternating Pewter n Purple anodizing, with “30” engraved. Each kit comes packaged in a CNC machined and individually numbered wooden box (1/30-30/30). Only 30 of these were made and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

This kit looks amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for PAUL and crew!

Head to Paul Component Engineering to pick up a set for you or someone you really want to stoke out.

Hope’s RX4 Flat Mount Disc Calipers

While these aren’t necessarily a new product in Hope’s expansive line of brake calipers and components but it’s new to me. I didn’t get a chance to shoot the Hope booth at Sea Otter, but I did see these Rx4 brake calipers, compatible with SRAM and Shimano brake levers. Have you used these yet? Are they as amazing as their MTB brakes?

I absolutely love EE Cycleworks‘ caliper brakes and will say with confidence that they’re the best brakes I’ve ever ridden on a road bike. Problem is, their availability is often low to say the least. Today Cane Creek announced it’ll take over the manufacturing, distribution and marketing of EE Cycle Works. As of November 2016, Cane Creek will begin rolling out product, so stay tuned. Head to Fair Wheel Bikes’ blog to read the full scoop.
