This year marks the fifth consecutive year that Sierra Nevada Brewery asked PAUL Component Engineering to build a bike to launch at the Sea Otter Classic.
However, this year the PAUL Component crew sought to build something extra spicy and special.
If you were at Sea Otter this year, you may have caught a glimpse of this custom one-of-kind beauty by the Sierra Nevada beer tent. Well, we hope you’re sitting down. BikeRumor has stellar news: there is time and potential to win this goddess.
To create the Sierra Oddity, the PAUL crew enlisted the help of other top brands in the business: Burnsey of Oddity Cycles was immediately interested. Confirming his magician-like status, Burnsey operated as swiftly and efficiently as possible to bend, miter, weld, beadblast, polish, and anodize custom logos into the titanium frame, fork, and handlebars.
Other artists stepped up to join the construction fun as well: White Industries and Velocity USA sent the raw parts to anodize and match the Pale Ale green together with PAUL’s parts. Ron of King Cage custom bent two hollow titanium can cages, and Phil Wood cut custom length spokes. Dynaplug contributed one of their latest Covert bar-end tire plugging systems. Lastly, WTB sent the tires, saddle, grips, and valves needed to complete the build of this ready-to-rock, single-speed dirt cruiser.
DONATE TO WIN
All it takes for a chance to take home the Sierra Oddity is to donate 5 dollars or more to California Mountain Biking Coalition (CAMTB) by April 29. Your donation to CAMTB will help fuel their ongoing state-level mountain biking and trail advocacy efforts. Their efforts include working with critical land managers such as the CA State Parks and the U.S Forest Service, to track and influence state and federal legislation and elections that impact access to public lands and natural resource conservation.
