Without a pump, having a spare tube and patches doesn’t get you home. A frame pump comes in handy when you are miles from a service station.
And a floor pump for your house is the easiest and fastest way to keep your tires regularly inflated. Remember that higher pressure tires need to be filled more often.
Although bike computers may seem frivolous, they are great accessories because they provide accurate data about your ride such as current speed, average speed, maximum speed, heart rate, trip distance for the day, cumulative mileage, as well as time spent riding and current time. Computers provide accurate information that can assist you with time management and health assessment.
Helmet ANSI or Snell Approved
Helmets are basic safety equipment. Since 80% of all bicycle fatalities are due to head injuries, it doesn’t make much sense to ride without a helmet. Regardless of how fast you ride, how much you ride, or how well you ride, accidents happen. Helmets are lightweight and well ventilated. You will look better (or at least wiser) wearing a helmet.
Lights and Reflectors
If you ride at night, it is a very good idea to have both lights and reflectors to increase your nighttime visibility.
We carry a large verity of both front and back lights. We have models available with USB chargers, LED lights, quick release or theft resistant attachment to the bike.
Riding glasses are specifically designed for cycling. They are superior to regular sunglasses because they wrap around your head (providing peripheral protection). Riding glasses filter out at least 98% of UV light (light that damages your eyes), and they prevent foreign objects like bugs, dust and road debris from entering your eyes.
Patch Kit and Spare Tube
There is nothing worse than pushing your bike home because you have a flat tire. Carry a spare tube because patching a tube on the road is much more difficult than patching the same tube at home. Besides, patches don’t always hold. Bring a patch kit in case you get two flats.
There are five main reasons for wearing gloves while riding.
Riding shorts are specially designed for comfort. The seam in the seat area is flat and they are padded with special materials that draw moisture away from the body to the outside of the material. This ‘wicking’ action increases comfort, helps to prevent chaffing and keeps you cooler through its evaporative effect.
Bikes break down, and usually on the road. A decent tool kit can get a bike moving again. Even if you are not mechanically inclined, you should still carry tools to fix a flat tire (wrenches and tire levers). Since cyclists help each other out, a passing cyclist might save your day if you have trouble, or you could be the one doing the saving.
It is important and necessary to keep your body hydrated. Your body can lose up to a quart of water per hour while riding. It is not obvious because the moisture evaporates quickly. Riding without enough fluids in your body is like running your car without water in the radiator. Both will overheat and eventually break down.
