    Cool-blue Rhythm Post Mount Paragon Machine Works SS Sliders

    Seen at Ashby BART in Berkeley, California. The new one piece Post Mount Brake adapter for Paragon Machine Works PMW slider frame dropouts, to bypass the typical ISO rear brake adapter, so your fork and frame are matched post mount.

    Although I haven't seen the update on the website, post mount sliders are now available for all existing frames running the ISO sliders.

    This one is in raw aluminum. How about a black anodized?

    New Products - all - www.paragonmachineworks.com

    Hmmm it says 160mm rotor only wonder how to fit a 140mm rotor? I guess remove some CPS washers?

    Agu, the PM slider is for a 160mm rotor. You'd have to convince Paragon Machine Works to machine a new slider for 140 / 180 etc. If the cyclocross CX guys and girls, XC race / weight weenies came on board with their financial backing, you'd have a 140mm rear which would be super.

    "Made from 6061 aluminum at 73 grams, this is the left side (non-drive) replacement insert for all of our flat or flanged sliding dropouts with a post mount 160mm rotor disc brake application." Source

    PMW PM Sliders Review

    Survived Burma at Mt. Diablo. Overpowered the hydraulic disc brakes beyond their maximum capacity --- "smell that?". PMW hardware dialed:

    yup, I guess the Dillinger Ti forks will be ready in a few months. The CrMo ones ride real well.

    Wonder if PMW can machine a bit of material from the slider? To me it looks a bit chunky hehe

    Agreed. Trying for black anodize to hide some of that chunky.

    Man, nobody gets black.

    Guess I'll be the first?

    I'll be proud to be black then.

    Hey I at least have one black bolt! (only because i stripped the head on the original and that's all my local hardware store had in stock).

    Black anodized would look cool I bet. I mainly went with polished aluminum as I thought it would match my brake caliper and the raw Ti finish of my chain stays / seat stays better.

    Wink Want!

    Black Anodized Post Mount Slider as seen at Paragon Machine Works NAHBS 2012 Sacramento!!!



    I can see a perfect fit with a black caliper, but in my case, when I exchange polished for ano black, it'll appear in this order frame slider caliper: raw titanium -> black anodized -> white powdercoat.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Titanium Scorcher & Black Ano PM Sliders

    Seen at PMW HQ in Richmond, California. Titanium scorcher commuter in effect, with a badass unicrown fork. Titanium almost-everything. Support local businesses with employees and bosses that commute to work by bicycle and public transportation.



    Was there to swoop the new black anodized Post Mount PM Slider from Paragon Machine Works. Have a polished set up for grabs FYI. Got the Paragon slider dropouts? Join the club, already.

    Saddleup: There is light at the end of the tunnel, promise. Re: titanium 29er suspension corrected rigid fork with disc post mount.

    I'm running a 140mm rear brake setup on a couple of my hardtails. One of which is the ti bike pictured above featuring the Paragon PM slider. May have to retroactively return to the ISO slider to run the 140mm rear brakeset.
