Paragon Machine Works has been busy over the past year expanding and improving our line of bicycle frame building components. We now offer our Syntace X-12 thru axle dropouts in titanium, steel, and stainless steel in a variety of widths. The T47 bottom bracket, which was introduced late 2015 and used on a number of bicycle frames at NAHBS 2016, has become a popular choice among frame builders. Our line of compatible bottom bracket shells includes titanium, steel, stainless steel and aluminum in a variety of widths and diameters. We have expanded our line of 15 mm front dropouts with an integral thread to include flat steel versions, with (DR2058) and without (DR2057) eyelets. In early 2016 we introduced our flat mount dropouts that are compatible with flat mount brake calipers. They are available in 58 or 70 degrees in steel (DR2085, DR2086) and stainless steel (DR1085, DR1086). We will continue to expand and improve the design and function of these products over the coming months.
