PAUL Component Engineering and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company have teamed up to build the Sierra Shredder, a super fun, one-off bike to show off at this year’s Sea Otter Classic. This Pale Ale (Paul’s favorite beer EVER) themed bike showcases Nor Cal quality and American manufacturing at its best, without getting TOO serious…..
Their vision was a frame manufactured and custom painted here in Northern California by Squid Bikes, covered in Sierra Nevada Logos, then outfitted with glistening parts machined by Paul Component Engineering in the brewery’s back yard that have been anodized a beautiful, sparkling, Pale Ale Green.
This bike re-ignites most people’s first sensations of bike lust as a kid, with shiny colorful anodized parts, wild paint, and classic chrome, on a style of bike that probably gave you your first childhood experience with a shot of adrenalin (and a scrape on the knee): a BMX bike. Bumped up in size to fit adults who are bored with fancy road bikes and in need of a good excuse for bringing a 4th bike into the garage, this bike is stripped down to the bare essentials of fun, a bike that was indeed conceived while brainstorming the most fun way to go on a beer run.
The bike will be displayed at the Sierra Nevada booth in the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden at this year’s Sea Otter with live painting by Squid bikes but you have your own chance to win the Shredder here in the North State. Just visit one of the many participating stores in the Monterey, Salinas, Santa Cruz area or your local Total Wine in Sacramento starting April 1.

Good luck and peace, bikes, and beers!
