A Trek Verve+ electric bike my favorite gift for Christmas! It will make your next bike ride more memorable and you'll never smile more!

When it comes to bike lights my first pick Bontrager Ion Pro RT. With 1300 lumens of light it provides more than enough illumination for an adventure. Easy recharging and portability make this a bright choice this holiday season.

Bontrager NCS Fenders keep you and your bike clean. No one wants to show up with a skunk stripe up their back or have to replace parts on their bike prematurely due to it being dirty. They are a great way to save money in the long run!

I love the Abus Bordo Lite 6055 Folding Lock because it's much smaller than a cable lock and way more secure. Small and light enough to drop in a jersey pocket, saddle bag, or back pocket of your jeans, but secure enough that you feel safe stopping for lunch on your all-day epic, or stopping by the grocery store on the way home from work. A great gift for the serious cyclist who already has everything, recreational fitness rider, or the casual errand-runner.

The Bontrager Velocis S2 Softshell Jacket is my go to jacket for multiple weather conditions. You can wear the Velocis S2 on cooler fall days or layer it up with a base-layer, long sleeve jersey and even an OMW Softshell Jacket for those below freezing evening rides! Bontrager's Velocis S2 Softshell is one of the warmest and most versatile jackets I have used so far!"

Your in the middle of an epic ride and need to make a pit stop. Your faced with leaving your dream bike outside while you run in... I think we have all been here. The OTTOLOCK fills the void, small enough to fit into a jersey pocket and secure enough to protect your investment. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the cyclist in your family!

My favorite trainer is the Wahoo Kickr Snap because it integrates with Swift, it's a great value, and uses cutting edge smart trainer technology.

Brightest light for the money! Compact and lightweight. Daytime flash and side lights with a low battery indicator.

45NRTH Gravdal commuter tire, be prepared! I commute on studded tires November through March and they have saved me from washing out on black ice and sketchy pavement. 100% of the time they work 100% of the time!

The Farley 5 is a great fat bike for the price, with a carbon fork and aluminum frame it's nimble and fun to ride. Plus, if you have a fat bike you can join us for our winter fat bike series Hugh Jass.

The Bontrager Old Man Winter boots provide unmatched warmth and comfort for winter riders. If your overshoe isn't cutting it for long winter trail rides or commutes do your toes a favor and try these babies on for size.
