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.

My 29+ Titanium Sklar Pack Mule MTB with Tumbleweed Persuader Bars

This bike is the direct result of many experiences, beginning with my 44 Bikes touring bike and culminating with the Moots Baxter I spent a great deal of time on last year both fully-loaded and set up in what I could call expedition mode. After a lot of back and forth, I realized that I like 29+ bikes for bikepacking and yeah, titanium is really nice for desert riding. These mental musings came to the full realization after spending some time talking with Adam from Sklar Bikes this summer in Bozeman.

Golden Saddle Rides: Mick from 100 Tacos’ Crust Nor’Easter Dirty Tourer

Golden Saddle Rides: Mick from 100 Tacos’ Crust Nor’Easter Dirty Tourer

A bike that’s perfect for its one imperfection. Mick hasn’t ever owned a new bike. Not new, new. Like pulling a brand new frame out of a box, new. It’s not that he was opposed to new bikes, he just never really found a company or a frame that fit his ideologies. Over the past few months however, Crust Bikes‘ offerings have really piqued his interest. He works at Golden Saddle Cyclery, a shop that churns out balleur Crust builds all the time. When he saw the new Nor’Easter, it strummed his heartstrings.

Special Edition PAUL Somethin’ Somethin’ For the Radavist

Special Edition PAUL Somethin’ Somethin’ For the Radavist

Over in Chico, Travis from PAUL had an idea, inspired from a certain band from the 80’s and wanted to do a fun product for the readers of this website. Splatter ano, like this band, had its heyday in the 1980’s and without giving you a direct link, if you search for the band’s name this color combination represents, it’ll take you to a special page where you can pick one of these special Somethin’ Somethin’ up.

We’ll give you two hints. The first being: this band was formed by two brothers, who were born in the Netherlands and moved to Pasadena, California in the early 60’s. The second: two lead singers were prominent during this band’s lifespan, which continues today.

If you head to PAUL and add in the answer to the search bar, it’ll take you straight to the product. For whatever reason, y’all can’t figure this out, express your concern in the comments…

SORRY TO ALL YOU VAN HALEN FANS, THESE ARE SOLD OUT!

Paul Component Engineering: 35mm Shorty Box Stem

In the world of modern mountain bikes, shorter stems are usually better, and that’s the motivation for Paul Component’s newest version of the Box Stem. These made in Chico stems now come in a 35mm length and weigh only 118grams. They’re in stock now at Paul. I can’t wait to put one on my mountain bike and on my touring bike.
