File this under OMG, because Paul’s Components has a mechanical disc brake in the pipeline. The cycling world is full of mechanical disc brakes, with my personal favorites being Shimano, Avid, and TRP (though not in any particular order). But this teaser image was making the rounds on Instagram and Twitter, setting the cycling forums on fire.
Drop. Dead. Sexy.
Yes, they’re going to be expensive.
Yes, all these bits are going to be machined aluminum goodness.
Yes, I would like a set.
No release date that I could find, though I would guess they would announce them at Interbike this week. With bike companies jumping on the “let’s put a disc brake on everything” band wagon, it stands to reason that Paul would make something really nice to hang on a bicycle.
