Gifts for the Cyclist in Your Life

There's nothing complicated here - this is basically Andy's Christmas Wish List.  He's pushing up on 5,000 miles this year, no big thing, and he's hopeful he'll be getting some of this gear to make next year even better.  If you've got a rider in your life and are still hunting for something to make them smile this holiday season, have at it!  All images are clickable.

New Tubes

Continental Bicycle Tubes Race 28 700x20-25 S60 Presta Valve 60mm Bike Tube Super Value Bundle... because LA's streets are not easy on the tyres.

New Helmet

Best value for a race-ready lid.  2017's can be found online for about $120.

Ride Camera

We've been using the RX100 III for travel and for sticking in a pocket during cycling trips and grabbing great images like the one above.  It's also BlueTooth compatible so you can upload to Instagram as you go.

New Pedals

LOOK Keo 2 Max Carbon S Road Pedals.  Kind of the road standard, but when your last pair lasted 10 years, might as well go back.

Riding Gloves

Louis Garneau - Men's Air Gel + Bike Gloves.  The color's not important, and if you're just looking for a bit of grip, these will do the job.

Local Brands

We like The Cub House and The Wheelhouse in LA. We always recommend the local designers and makers, and for bikes, they're at the top of our list.

The Safe Bet

Every rider will appreciate a gift certificate to Rapha to take the edge off the price point on this luxury brand.
