Shoveling up your own dirt trails requires weeks in the woods. And nobody’s got time for that. Shoretrax makes getting your pumptrack fix much easier. They created a portable, modular track system you can pull out of the back of your truck & set up anywhere.
This is the first bike computer Polar has ever made and by the looks of the V650, they’re killing it right out of the gate. It computes & displays various ride data like heart rate, speed, distance, and altitude. It navigates and delivers more accurate GPS-powered speed and distance data and syncs with compatible accessories like your HR strap.
When you’re all packed into your spandex for a ride, you want to keep your cargo to a minimum but you always want to be equipped for the inevitable flat. Here’s what you need: the lightest bike pump ever made. It’s made of carbon fiber, features a Presta tip, and weighs only 21 grams. Unfortunate name though.
Nothing says “I’m serious about this” like a custom-made, boutique roadbike. And in terms of technology, The Carby Road is legit: carbon frame & fork plus DT Swiss wheels & an Sram Red 22 group make it an easy choice for the hardcore cyclist. The spillover coolguy points that the Deus nameplate brings are an extra bonus.
Sandwichbike is a build-it-yourself bike made with a plywood frame. The idea of a bike offering flat-pack shipping and home assembly is the brainchild of Amsterdam-based designer Bastien Leijh. Years in development, the finished & fully functional Sandwichbike kit is now on sale.
From the ape hanger handlebars to the banana seat to the wide, slick rear tire, this new 50th Anniversary Schwinn Sting-Ray is every bit as badass as the one you wanted as a kid but never got. Named for the Schwinn engineer Al Fritz who designed this iconic bike, the Fritz Fifty edition features all chrome finish with black trim details. There will only be 500 of these available exclusively at independent bicycle retailers during the first week of December.
Because they can perform more than one task, multitools are better than monotools. This one is made for bike repairs and maintenance, featuring all types of drivers, a wrench and a tire iron. It also comes packed in a cute little leather burrito you can strap to your classique randonneur.
These Italian-designed magnetic bike lights will make it easier to see when you’re pedaling after dark as long as there’s at least a little bit of metal on your bike. Stick ‘em anywhere & go, then when you’re done, pop ’em off and they stick together for easy storage.
Getting your whole bike stolen sucks but when they just take your front wheel or the seat it’s an insult. Sitting there still locked up & stripped of parts. Sad. These stealthy, stainless steel combo locks from Sphyke (c’mon, try to say it) will keep your seat & wheels from walking away.
This backpack designed for cycling is lightweight and it will stay that way because your laptop won’t fit in there. What will: a pair of shoes, a change of clothes. There’s also a little pocket for your phone, keys, and the like. Just the essentials for that ride in to the office.
