In this day and age of Facebook,
instant messaging and email, Paul Morningstar's correspondence always arrived at Mountain Bike Action by mail and was neatly hand written. Paul was great at passing along tech tips or a sample of his latest tool (like the Rim Rench
pictured below). Paul was one of those eccentrics that seem to be drawn to mountain biking and we looked forward to his calls and letters.
That is why we were saddened to learn of Paul's death in this report from the Bakersfield Californian
. Our condolences go out to Paul's friends and family. We really enjoyed the short amount of time we spent with the man.
