Most of us want to give holiday gifts that have value. Not just cute little trinkets but items that really make a difference.
Unfortunately, oftentimes holiday stocking stuffers fall into the camp of cute but not really useful. But, at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop, we’ve compiled a list of inexpensive bike parts to make your stocking stuffers useful, as well as, coveted gifts.
Consider this – have you ever thought that what a cyclist keeps in their back pocket of their jersey or their saddle bag as a necessary item of safety? Cyclist riding road bikes and mountain bikes often find themselves in isolated locations. With that being said, it’s important to be as self reliant as possible. Our list of stocking stuffers will bring a grin to their face and also keep them safe!
- Tubes: This is one gift you absolutely positively will get used. Make sure you get the right size of tube. If you aren’t sure, stop in the Peaks Cycling Store and ask one of our friendly staff to help you. Or, visit us online at bikeparts.com
- Bottles: 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.
- 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. They nice thing about these is that they fit nicely in a holiday stocking in as much as they do a cycling jersey!
- Nutrition: Think energy bars, gels, and chews. Instead of chocolate, fill the stocking (or water bottle) with nutrition, bars, gels, and drinks that your cyclist can use on the bike.
- Lube: Every cyclist goes through it and we’ve got tons of it.
- Bicycle tools: These are much needed for on the fly bike repairs and maintenance. Key items to include are a patch kit, tire levers, pump, and a multi tool.
Spend your holiday money wisely! Invest in bike parts and cycling accessories that delights your favorite cyclist and also keeps them safe and sound. Doing this pretty much guarantees that you’ll make Santa’s nice list for next year!
