If you know someone who regularly bikes to work, commutes to the gym, or pedals to the coffee shop, then the following assortment of goodies will make the perfect holiday gifts.
Lezyne Hecto/Strip Drive Pair ($68)
Even if you're not constantly riding in early morning or late evening, winter days are short, and getting caught in the dark is inevitable. Be prepared with this great light. Incredibly bright (300/25 front/rear lumens), weatherproof, and durable front and rear lights ensure that you're seeing and being seen.
SKS P45 Chromoplastic Longboard Fender Set ($45)
Fitting essentially any wheel and tire, these fenders keep you dry and looking good without breaking the bank.
Lezyne M-Caddy Sport Kit ($55)
Complete with a pump, M-Caddy saddle bag, patch kit, tire levers, and a multi-tool, literally all that's left to buy is the appropriate tube. This is a one stop shop.
Giro Merino Knit Wool Gloves ($28)
When commuting, it's often hard to blend style and function. Luckily, Giro's beautiful Merino Knit Wool Gloves also perform flawlessly to keep you warm and up-to-date with touchscreen compatibility.
Shimano XT 2-Way Pedals ($80)
Commuters rejoice. On those long commutes to work, you can embrace the clipless side of the pedals, but when it comes to that "quick jaunt to the market" you don't need to wear cleated shoes.
