Holiday Gifts for Every Cyclist On Your List 

December 19, 2019

As the holiday season is in full swing, you may find yourself reflecting on what to buy your favorite cyclist for the gift-giving season.

Fortunately, whether your favorite cyclist is interested in racing, commuting, or recreational bike riding, at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop, we’ve got your gift ideas covered.

From stocking stuffers to big presents to place under the tree, read through this list and find exactly what you need! 

  1. Tubes: This is one gift you can have confidence will get used. Make sure you get the right size of tube. If you aren’t sure, stop in the Peaks Cycles Bicycle Shop and ask one of our friendly staff to help you. Or, visit us online at bikeparts.com
  2. Tires: While you’re getting tubes, you might as well get some new rubber! All Continental tires are 10-20% off.
  3. A good bottle: Every cyclist has a ton of bottles, but that’s not the same as having good bottles. Buy a good bottle and stuff it with other goodies, as in Gu or nutrition products. 
  4. Socks: Did you know cyclists like to wear their cycling socks even when they aren’t riding?  Why? Because they are so comfortable.  Pick out a pair of socks you like for your cyclist and maybe even get a pair for yourself!
  5. Warmers: We’re talking about head warmers, ear warmers, arm warmers, leg warmers, and shoe covers – all the necessities to keep your favorite cyclist warm and comfortable out on those chilly winter rides.  The nice thing about these is that they fit nicely in a holiday stocking in as much as they do a cycling jersey!
  6. Gloves: Say bye-bye to smelly gloves. This is another item that every cyclist already has, but which every cyclist can always use more of. 
  7. Is your favorite cyclist a bike commuter? We’ve got 15% off Kryptonite lights and 10% off Kryptonite locks. The ideal bike safety combination for bike commuting.
  8. Bike nutrition: Think energy bars / gels / chews.  Instead of chocolate, fill the stocking (or water bottle) with nutritional items, bars, gels, and drinks.
  9. Lube: Every cyclist goes through chain lube and we’ve got tons of it. 
  10. A gift for off the bike.  Maybe your favorite cyclist would enjoy a pint glass, a poster, or some other bike parts goodie.
  11. Gift a Bike fit –  Does your cyclist complain of hands falling asleep while riding? Or shoulder or neck pain after a long ride? A bike fit isn’t just for professional riders – they are for anyone who rides whether they are a beginner or advanced rider. A bike fit helps ensure riding comfort but it also impacts technique which is crucial to preventing overuse injuries and how an athlete rides. Consider the gift of giving your favorite cyclist a bike fit for Christmas. Not only can we help them with the fit, but we carry all the bike parts required to get the bike in the very best setup for their riding needs.  Give us a call (303) 216-1616 or stop by the shop in Golden to schedule your bike fit.
  12. Demo a fat bike!  That’s right! Fat bikes are all the rage – they thrive in snow, sand, desert, bogs, and mud as well as riding what is considered normal mountain biking.   Book a fat bike demo for your favorite cyclist.
  13. What if your favorite cyclist is a kid? We all know, the best Christmas Gift for a Kid is a bike! Lucky for you, we have a huge selection of kids bikes, children’s cycling apparel, helmets, and cycling accessories. This includes windbreakers, gloves, shorts, jersey’s, chamois, pedals, hats, backpacks, and all the cool things that kids love. Stop in the shop to see our huge selection of children’s cycling apparel and gear.
  14. For the cyclist that loves to do their own bike maintenance, surprise them with the Starter Kit from Park Tools and pair it with the Feedback Sports Work Mechanic Workstand. You’ll have a happy cyclist for sure!
  15. A cyclist dream gift?  Bike parts! What cyclist doesn’t love bike parts? Whether it’s a new saddle, shifters, brakes, seat post, fork, pedals, hubs or wheels, your favorite cyclist wants it.  The usual problem is how to know exactly what to get. Our answer, get a gift certificate.

Inspired by the Colorado Classic? Top Ways You Can Support The Women Cyclists in Your Life and Community  

August 22, 2019

Today kicks off Stage 1 of the Colorado Classic in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and in just a few days, these phenomenal racers will grace the streets of Golden, Colorado. At Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop, we couldn’t be more excited to see the race unfold! More so, we embrace this opportunity to support the movement to inspire women, challenge and redefine female professional cycling, and empower women of all ages to cycle, train, race and enjoy all that the world of cycling offers.  We invite you to do the same! 

As the race develops, witnessing the athleticism, strength, endurance, and race strategies these athletes embody is inspiring. Capture that inspiration and take action on it! Get young girls, teenagers, and women interested in cycling and further support their existing training and racing programs with bike parts, cycling apparel, and cycling related products that the women racing in the Colorado Classic have available to them.  

Support doesn’t have to cost a lot but it could make a huge difference. Think of it this way, your support and inspiration could be the confidence-building or the inspiration needed to take action on dreams, goals, and achievements that would never be realized.  Just like the Colorado Classic. This is the only stand-alone women’s pro race in the Western Hemisphere – with the same prize money as the men. The Colorado Classic is making big strides in the world of women’s cycling and so can you.  There are countless ways to support women’s cycling. Following are just a few:

Ride together!  Whether you are riding the road or hitting some great single track, stick together and ride together. Maybe do intervals or practice skills on the mountain bike.  Riding together rather than dropping your female cyclist can ease the mental toll that creates from the constant pressure to keep up with you or the group. You don’t have to ride together every ride, but certainly, on no-drop rides – ensure they really are no-drop rides.  This invites beginners and riders with less confidence to find their way into the group, gain some skill level, and improve fitness.  Consider it “paying it forward”.  

The pro riders in the Colorado Classic are riding, training, and racing on quality road bikes. Support your female cyclist in having a good bike – and a well-fitting bike!   Surprisingly, great road bicycles don’t have to come at a hefty price tag.  Right now, in our Golden, Colorado shop we have a huge end of summer sale.  Now is the time to take advantage of the 40% off on select Specialized bikes and gear.  We also have a wide selection of women’s cycling apparel so it’s worth taking the time to stop in, try some things on, check out the road and mountain bikes, and cash in on the end of summer sale.

Pay attention to the nutritional differences of female athletes.  Specific to training and racing, many cyclists have different preferences as to how they prefer to get their fuel while riding – whether that is in nutrition bars, gels, and liquids. We have several options including nutritional products just for women. Specifically, Osmo nutrition.  This product is specific to women offering three options: active hydration, acute recovery, and preload hydration. These options are definitely worth looking into considering that oftentimes, female nutritional requirements differ from men’s requirements. 

Take training to another level with heart rate monitors and power meters. Pro riders train with power and heart rate and even recreational riders do too.  Some mistakingly think that technology takes away the “riding experience” or that it is too costly for their level of riding.  However, times have changed and power meters are much more affordable.  Specific to cycling performance, they offer objective biofeedback to help improve fitness related to goals. Many cyclists goes by “feel” as to whether or not they are getting stronger, faster, or “better” but power meters take the guessing out of the equation and offer precise feedback that gives true confidence that there is an improvement.  

Last but not least, get a bike fit! Pro riders get bike fits – and so can you! An often overlooked component of successful racing and training is a bike fit. Leg strength, endurance, and fitness are at the heart of cycling speed, but without a proper bike fit, you are sabotaging your training efforts.  Bike fits aren’t just for the pros, they are for everyone that rides. So go ahead and make the best of your training efforts and schedule a bike fit in our professional bike fit studio.

There are countless suggestions that we can offer for training and racing tips to support women’s cycling.  Stop by the Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop on Saturday during Stage 3 of the Colorado Classic and ask our staff for ideas and suggestions.  Also, keep current by following our Facebook page and Twitter feed for updates.

2014 Specialized Fatboy

December 9, 2013

Never one to be left out of all the fun, Specialized has joined Trek and many small brands in debuting a fatbike for the 2013/2014 winter.  However, unlike Trek and many other brands, the Fatboy is mass produced in great numbers and available world-wide.  With a carbon fork, press-fit bottom bracket and Sram 2×10 drivetrain, the Fatboy is definitely one of the more race-ready fatbikes available.  The Fatboy also shares the same geometry as the legendary Specialized Stumpjumper, the first and longest mass-produced mountain bike in the world.  Not just for racers, though, the frame has rear rack mounts for long rides and multi-day fun!

We’ve got a Fatboy in the shop just in time for winter here in Golden.  Jump past the break to see what bike parts and features make this fatbike stand out from the rest!
