An unbelievably comfortable sock made of the finest materials that can also save you 4-8w. Sure, why not?
Bone Conduction Headphones
These things are revolutionary. I love to listen to music when I train, but traditional headphones block out traffic sounds which is unsafe. With bone conduction headphones you get the best of both worlds, you can hear your music and you can hear everything around you.
I’m almost always in need of some new gloves. HANDUP gloves are comfy and have signature fun quips across the palms.

A clean bike is a fast bike, plus it looks better.
Nicer than necessary, sure. Heirloom quality and functional, yes!
I put off buying a repair stand for years, once you have one you can’t imagine going back. A great gift for any cyclist that does some wrenching at home.

Full backside rider protection from the knee and up and great graphics. A dry, clean butt can really make a ride more enjoyable.
