Why is it that the holidays have the unique ability to raise your blood pressure about as much as hellacious L.A. traffic?! Aren't Christmas and Thanksgiving supposed to be the time of year filled with relaxation and quality time spent with loved ones? Things seem to have been lost somewhere in the mix. Nobody wants to celebrate the holidays by standing in long lines of people and traffic to buy something you're not fully convinced is even wanted or necessary. This is where our friends at Art's Cyclery come in handy. Not only can they spare you long lines, but this Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide for the roadie(s) in your life will help to point you in the right direction of things that will not only be desirable, but useful and greatly appreciated.
Lezyne RAP 15 LED Multi-Tool ($30)
While six tools isn't enough and 20+ is getting excessive, 14 tool bits and a tool-end LED light delivers just about everything needed into a value-packed and durable multi-tool.
Defeet Thermeator 6″ Sock ($15)
Sex appeal and real-world wearability came together in this ensemble. With colder months ahead, this mid-weight sock is 30% lighter than Merino, a knock-out in the "looks" department, and sports CoolMax Ecomade fiber. For cold weather and base miles, these endurance/cold weather socks are perfect.
Lezyne Twin Kit CO2 ($30)
Combining the brilliance of the Lever Kit (tire levers and patch kit all in one) with the Twin Speed Drive CO2, all you need for tire/tube repair beyond this is the tube itself. Easy to use and all-inclusive.
Road Inner Tube (5 packs) ($23)
Spare tubes are a must for roadies, no matter what, but when a single tube will run you about $7, you can see what you're saving by buying these 5 packs.
Louis Garneau Clean Imper Rain Jacket ($26)
This no frills, keep-the-rain-out jacket will surely do the job if you get caught out by Mother Nature.
