You’re making your list and checking it twice, but have you remembered everybody on your list? As we’re officially into the holiday shopping season, you have about two weeks to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list:
– Spouse – check
– Parents – check
– Siblings – check
– Children – check
– Bike – ???
You haven’t forgotten about your two wheeled friend, now have you? Let’s think about this. The holidays are for sharing gifts celebrating the special relationships you have with others. Doesn’t your bike create fun, fitness, and basically, the greatest feeling in the world for you? Show some love to your bike this holiday season. Get it some presents!
Your bike’s #1 holiday wish would be to drop the weight – on bike components that is! The trick is where to start? Since you already feel bad about forgetting your bike on your holiday list, you might as well opt for the best weight reductions you can get for your bike. Consider getting a high quality wheel set. A good wheel set impacts ride quality, ease of pedaling, reliability, and functionality. So, get the best you can afford. Add some new, lighter tires on your wheels and your bike will thank you for the bling!
Another option is to reconsider your crank set and pedals. You can shave some weight there while also selecting lighter handlebars, a lighter saddle, and seat post. Loosing weight never seemed so easy!
Once you get lighter bike parts on your bike, not only will you notice how nice everything is, but your bike will gift you right back with another season of joyful riding. Here’s to sharing the holiday spirit with our two wheeled friends! Happy Holidays!
