Paul Component Engineering Declares Nov. 2nd is International Single Speed Day!

Two years ago at the weekly PAUL Components 11 am Monday meeting, an important decision was made. That day, Paul announced that Nov. 2nd would be known as International Single Speed Day (it also happened to be his and his pal Amanda’s birthday).

PAUL Components has been a long-time proponent of single-speed mountain bikes as they were one of the first, if not the first company to make a designated single-speed hub for modern mountain bikes. You can still get the WORD (Wacky One-speed Rear Device) rear hub from PAUL now.

So for the last two years, on November 2nd, a bunch of people take to their single speeds and share their experiences, one-speed steeds, and birthday wishes on Instagram with the hashtag #InternationalSingleSpeedDay

Well, Paul wants to do it again this year… but this time, they’ve got prizes! Yes, this year, PAUL Components is going to pick their three favorite #InternationalSingleSpeedDay posts and the winners will receive…

A Handlebar from BTCHN Bikes…

Or, PAUL Barbarian Hoodie…

Or, A Radavist Feldspar Jacket…

THERE ARE NO RULES! Pick a single speed, any single speed, set your derailleur stops, duct tape stuff, and don’t charge your Etap this or Di2 whatever, or heck,  take your kid’s bike… in the words of PAUL’s own California Travis “you don’t need a bunch of fancy new-fangled shiftamabobbers to have fun on a bike.”

Go for it, ride bikes and be merry… don’t forget your hashtags!

It’s unclear if International Single Speed Day includes fixies. 🙁

Does “backwards” count as a second speed

Once a year I get reminded that my Bianchi S.I.S.S. was stolen out of my garage.
