Accessories that will spice-up your ride.
As the weather warms, we start to see more and more bikes out on the road that catch your eye and make you say, “…WHOA”. I am here to share my secrets to making the bike you already have, more whoa-worthy without spending a ton of dough.
A little tape can go a long way.
Available at Manual for Speed, an optical print, Cinelli bar tape can do incredible things for your ride. If you’re feeling like the love for your bicycle is fading – try giving your bike a good scrub down and adding this Space Tape. Your heart and ride will race again.
Take your ride out of this world.
Not only does the Galactic take comfort up a notch (with a wider cut-out than then traditional Terry Butterfly™), it’s also designed with an iridescent night sky cover with reflective constellation details. How cool is that? SO COOL – everyone who spots it on my bright orange frame is awestruck. However, you don’t have to just take my word for it–if you happen to spot one around town, snap a picture with your flash on and I promise, you will see stars.
Add a bit of Retro Flare.
As I entered the road bike world, it seemed to be a rule that simple is best for tires. However while watching current cycling trends, as one naturally does on their day off, you know that gumwall tires are back in style and oh boy does that make me happy. My top pick for this throwback accessory is the Veloflex Master Clincher Road Tire. For those of you who want a full on color tire, it’s also available in yellow, blue and red, and can be found here.
Jewelry for your bicycle.
The possibilities are endless at Kustomcaps.com. Create your own or choose from ready-made options including their artist series, road caps, and special editions.
Cages that will have you soaring.
It is often, as they say, the little things that count. So, if you are looking for a small change for your bicycle that will make you smile look no further than The Owl Cage by Portland Design Works.
