Essential Bike Accessories
Once you've picked out your new bike, a few simple accessories can make it just right. Every rider can benefit from a bottle cage, which mounts directly to the bicycle frame to hold a water bottle securely. Many kids' bikes and hybrid bikes can easily mount a kickstand, which helps keeps your bike upright when you've reached your destination. Bells are especially useful on crowded bike paths to let others know you are coming.
Lights & Locks
Good bicycle locks and lights are must-haves for urban commuting. Locks provide safety and security for your bike. We carry a range of traditional steel u-locks, lightweight cable locks and secure folding locks. Lights come in white for front-facing and red for rear-facing, we recommend one of each. Let us know if you are looking to be seen or light up the road/trail and we are happy to help you choose the right one!
Flat Repair Accessories
If you're planning on embarking on an adventure with your bicycle, it's always best to be prepared with a flat repair kit - but you might need it for a short commute too! A simple repair kit includes tire levers, a spare tube, a patch kit, and a pump or CO2 cartridges. We can help you assemble your own flat repair kit, or show you ready-made options. We always recommend having a full-size floor pump at home, and a simple multitool for any adjustments you might need to make on the bike
Electronics & Phone Holders
Whether you want to use turn-by-turn instructions to follow an established route, drill down data about your ride's maximum altitude or whether your left leg produces as much power as your right leg - we've got the solutions for you! Dedicated bike computers can provide info as basic as current speed and distance, or they can interface with power meters and heart rate monitors to give you incredibly nuanced data display of every ride. We also stock mounts that can keep your phone within each reach on your handlebars so you can see directions via your phone or if someone is calling you.
Fenders, Racks & Bags
Once you've been rolling for awhile, you may discover that the perfect ride requires a few more accessories. If you ride 365 days a year you may want fenders to protect you and your bike from the rain. Tired of carrying everything on your back? Try a rack and panniers to help you carry all your necessities wherever you are headed!
