It’s Milling Time: Paul Component Engineering New Gear

Paul Component Engineering New Gear

Paul Price has been designing and turning out quality components from his workshop in an old Texaco gas station for over 25 years now. The range continues to grow with these new products.

From the press release
Bottle Opener (Above):
A bottle opener on one end and a 15mm brake adjuster/rotor truing slot on the other makes this one handy tool. And it’s got a bottle opener. “The Best Bottle Opener of 2016” – Paul Price.

Thumbies (Above):
Miss thumb shifters? Converting a drop bar bike to flat bars? These easily transform bar end (aka barcon or TT) shifters into thumb shifters. The shifters are not included, but are readily available in 8 through 11-speed versions, and many have an option for friction-shifting. Thumbies bring back the thumb shifting of old, and we think it makes shifting more precise and smoother. These feel much better in our opinion than trigger or twist shifters.
Thumbies have a hinged clamp for an easy installation and fit handlebars with a diameter of 22.2mm or 31.8mm. The 22.2 models fit mountain bike handlebars and the 31.8 mount to the stem clamp area of a drop bar. The clamp is raised up to give clearance for hydraulic brake levers.
We currently make Thumbies to work with Shimano shifters only. They have a shifter mounting boss that fits Shimano bar end shifters and most Shimano downtube shifters.

Technical Information
Material: 6061 Aluminum
Weight: 60g
Finish: Anodized or Polished
Anodised Colour: Black or Silver
Clamp Size:
22.2mm: 22.2mm is equivalent to 7/8 inches, and is the diameter of most mountain bike handlebars. Many flat bars, risers and city bars have this diameter. It is measured at the end of the bar where grips and brake levers attach.
31.8: 31.8mm is the “clamp” diameter of most handle bars and this size is designed for that section of a drop bar. The shifters are mounted on either side of the stem and are very easy and convenient to operate.
Compatible Shifters: Shimano bar end and Shimano down tube. Older downtube shifters will need the chrome plastic piece to be filed or sanded flat.

Funky Monkey:
The Funky Monkey is a simple, hanging housing stop for center pull and cantilever brakes. This simple part is brought to a whole new level with our renowned machining prowess. We make a front and a rear version. The front comes in a 1 1/8” and 1” sizes, the rear is 27.2mm and is meant for mounting on a seatpost. The front Funky Monkey features an extra-long arm that drops down to prevent brake cable housing from bending too tightly and binding up. The arm sticks out far enough to clear most headsets. The rear Funky Monkey has a hinged arm to self-align for the proper cable angle. Both front and rear versions have a barrel adjuster to make brake cable adjustments quick and painless.
