Even more gift ideas…

Did I mention we’re having a sale? Through Christmas Eve? Stop by and pick something up for yourself or for you favorite cyclist! Here are a few more ideas:

Showers Pass Rogue Hoodie

New from the fine foks at Showers Pass, the Rogue Hoodie is the kind of jacket you’ll want to grab every day. Weather-resistant with a 3-layer waterproof softshell Artex material to keep you cozy when it’s 55 degrees and below – and isn’t that really November – June around here?

Showers Pass Double Century EX

Also from Showers Pass, for the ladies, the Double Century EX is a super light, packable shell with a 2.5-layer waterproof material for a drier next-to-skin feel. While this jacket offers serious protection from serious weather, it still packs right down to tuck into a jersey pocket. Also available for men.

Smartwool HyFi Arm, Knee, and Leg Warmers

Arm warmers are practically a cycling essential in these parts. Here’s what’s awesome about Smartwool’s HyFi fabric: it’s a blend of 45% nylon and 39% Merino wool with a bit of Elastane thrown in, so these arm, knee and leg warmers are super warm and comfortable without sacrificing fit.

Big Sale!

Yes, we’ve got markdowns at both Recycled Cycles locations on way too much stuff to list, from Friday 11/23 through Christmas Eve, so stop by to browse around. Plus this weekend ONLY – Friday, November 23 – Sunday, November 25 – we’ll cover the sales tax on whatever you buy.  It might be a good time to get some holiday shopping done, or stock up on cycling gear for yourself. Just putting it out there!

More great gifts!

Here are a few more gift ideas for your favorite cyclist. Who wouldn’t love any one of these? Or all of them!

Feedback Sports Pro Elite Repair Stand
When we’re not working on your bikes at Recycled Cycles, you’ll find us using a Pro Elite at home. This lightweight aluminum stand is super easy to set up and take down (no tools required), you can adjust the height and it’s truly portable, weighing in at just over 12 pounds. Ideal for the DIY-er in your life!

Portland Design Works Full Metal Fenders
There are so many things we like about these fenders it’s hard to know where to start: easy to install, look great, work even better.  If you have a road bike and have had a hard time finding just the right fenders, PDW’s anodized aluminum Full Metal Fenders are the ones you need. They’ll fit around caliper brakes and under forks and you can get add-on mounts if your bike lacks eyelets. And that, my friends, is a gift.

Lezyne Classic Floor Drive Pump
Personally, I think a great pump is worth its weight in gold – and this Lezyne Classic is a beaut. It’s a high pressure pump for both Presta and Schrader valves with an included Speed Chuck for disc wheels. Oversize gauge (for those of us with, um, “mature” vision), steel barrel and a classic varnished wood handle.

Holiday Gift Ideas: Lights You’ll Love

It’s hard to believe it’s already time to start thinking about holiday shopping, but it’s mid-November! We thought it would be a good idea to start with lights, as we’ve been commuting home in the dark on these chilly November evenings. For safety, the question isn’t “if” you need a light, it’s “which one?” Here are a few of our favorites:

Blackburn SuperFlea

Don’t let the small size fool you; this affordable little LED puts out 120 lumens, easily hooks up to a USB smart charger, has waterproof charging ports for our rainy weather, and will run from 1-5 hours, depending on mode.

NiteRider Lumina Series

Another lightweight, superbright favorite is the NiteRider Lumina series. We carry the USB rechargeable Luminas in two models – 350 & 650 lumens – to fit any budget.

Light & Motion Commuter Combo Pack

For the dedicated bicycle commuter in your life, pick up the ultimate combo from Light & Motion. Includes the Urban 200 front light and Vis 180 Micro rear light – both of which are USB rechargeable – to keep you safe on the road all year long, at a better price than if you purchased the lights separately. Also available with an Urban 550 front light for those who need a seriously bright light.
