Dental floss bikini, yes. Actual dental floss, well… We can all agree that the act of flossing kinda just sucks in general, so the Philips Sonicare AirFloss is going to be a big one this Christmas. Rather than shredding your gums with waxed wire, this thing “dislodges interdental plaque and bacteria with rapid bursts of air and water.”
After spandex, the next most emasculating aspect of cycling is having to borrow another man’s tools to make an adjustment or repair. Bring your own, man.

If you weren’t immediately repulsed by the sight of rotting zombies, the hit series The Walking Dead probably sucked you right in.

It’s square shape, simple one-compartment design and durable materials like Italian suede and cow leather make this a pretty manly dopp kit.

There’s nothing really groundbreaking about cycling-specific stretch denim. Although coming from the matchless core cycling brand Rapha, these jeans are certainly the real deal. They’re fast-drying and feature stealth logos and subtle hits of their signature pink stashed inside the cuff.
Should the lead in your pencil be hard or soft? Since you only text & type, you probably have no idea. A good, old fashioned pencil snob will tell you that the super-soft lead of the legendary Blackwing 602 is as good as a pencil gets. You should be writing this down.
