BMX Racing News - Caroline Buchanan will run Box Components in 2013

In business, when strategic partnerships work, it gets to a point that it is tough to imagine things any other way. Try walking in to a McDonald’s and ordering a Pepsi–it would just seem wrong.

BOX Components and DK have been moving toward that level since they announced their strategic partnership last year. They recently re-upped the deal for another year, and things are going swimmingly for all concerned.

So, last week, when we learned that Caroline Buchanan–who will debut her new DK kit in Phoenix next week–had signed on with BOX Components as one of her personal co-sponsors, it just seemed to say “Peanut Butter loves Jelly,” a perfect match.

Between BOX and Promax, team Toby has Caroline fully-outfitted——a gruppo-moto, if you will. Here’s what she’ll be running:

• BOX X-Series carbon forks
• BOX Delta stems
• BOX Maximus handlebars
• BOX Focus rims
• BOX Hollow 20-mil hubs
• BOX Genius brake levers
• BOX Eclipse brakes with BOX X-Ray brake shoes
• BOX Concentric cables
• BOX Vector crankset
• BOX Echelon and Shift saddles
• BOX Helix seatclamps
• BOX Phase 1 number plates
• Promax IG-45 headsets
• Promax SL-1 stem locks

Guess she’s on her own for valve caps.

Oh, wait…

And, DK is building her a custom frame with the new-fangled BB30/PF30 bottom bracket. This, so she can run the new BOX “Vertex” crankset (profiled in our Interbike 2012 coverage). The Vertex only works with a frame using the BB30/PF30 bottom bracket shell. The BB set features 35mm external bearings.

We’re stoked to see Caro in Phoenix next week, and will keep you posted on the ever-evolving constellation of stars running the BOX components line.

Plus, just caught this one on YouTube…she is hand-in-glove with FIST Handwear. Check the vid:
