The Multi Pouch from Spurcycle is hand made in the USA by Fog City in San Francisco, California. The idea behind this simple little bag is to help you get out the door and onto the bike with a short a transition time. If you are anything like me I have a routine of running back in the house I minimum of two times because I have forgotten something, whether it is tools, cash or first aid there is always something which I think is slowly driving my partner insane.
When you have spent hundreds or even thousands of pounds on your bike, you will want to keep it in the best of nick: taking time to clean and maintain your bike will become as important to you as getting out on the road or trail. When I was a kid and I needed to work on my bike, I would flip it upside down and rest it on the handle bars and saddle, an action that would make many serious cyclists turn green just at the thought of it. The Elite Race Pro Work Stand is the stand of choice for pro teams like Europcar and Katusha.
When I used to cycle regularly, I was never quite sure what sort of bike lock to use, I settled for a D-lock for the tough protection, but it weighed an absolute ton and if I put it on the frame of the bike it would always get in the way of my knees. Being the type of person who would rather complain than do anything about it, I put up with it. If I had known these existed, I would have certainly given them ago, at only 20g they are super lightweight and at 420mm long they are so compact.
Simply screaming expletives at other road uses from your bike to make them aware of your presence is often frowned upon, so to combat this, Orpland have created a solution by producing the world’s first combination dual-tone bike horn & beacon light. Built with the express intention of making you more visible and audible, the Orp uses a dual-decibel horn and front beacon light within a small, light, and weatherproof case that can be recharged via a USB connection. Orp's integral strap makes mounting a breeze for almost all handlebars.
What better way to kick off the new year than throwing yourself head first into a new hobby, and what better hobby than cycling? Most of us have a bike buried in the garage somewhere and let’s be honest, you always wanted to try out those padded bike shorts. The Quad Lock Bike kit for iPhone X allows you to take your phone along for the ride without the fear of getting lost. This is the lightest, strongest, and most secure iPhone X Bike Mount available.
This baby seat aims to provide a safe and balanced ride for both adult and child, with a centre mounted seat to help distribute the weight evenly and put the child between your arm, where you can easily talk and keep an eye on them, unlike rear mounted seats. The new design has higher sides for increased child-stability, an added strap underneath the bar for further stability, a two-movement thumbscrew, a two-movement buckle release, additional straps on the foot cups, and also features an increased seat size.
I use my bike regularly for trips into the city as I prefer to travel wherever possible with my backside sat on something. My home city is bike friendly and it is easy to find somewhere to leave my bike the only issue I face then is carting my helmet around with me whilst shopping or going for lunch. The Overade Plixi Folding Helmet seemed like the answer to my problem as when you are not wearing it (don’t make the mistake of trying to fold it down when it’s on your head) it will fold down to a third of its size, making it easy to fit into a small bag.
The 6th Sense sunglasses are without a doubt the most technical thing I have ever had on my face, although for the majority of the time I would forget I was even wearing them. They performed really well against the dazzling low light you get this time of year, they reduced glare and were extremely comfortable to wear with an adjustable nose piece that can be moulded to fit any nose and weigh in at an impressively light 28g.
