7 Products You Should Consider Buying After Getting a New Bike

If You Just Bought A New Bike Or Are Getting Back Out There, Here are Some Post-Bike Purchase Products to Help You Out On The Road.

Everyone knows the essentials: a helmet, pump, patch kit, spare tube, tire levers, proper footwear, and comfortable clothing, but there are some further accessories you can buy to make your riding even more enjoyable!

Floor Pump: The mini-pump that many people attach to their frame is great for emergencies on the road (or trail) - but for everyday use you should get a floor pump. It will make short work of airing your tires and keep your frame pump in great condition for those emergencies.

Car Rack: The trails or roads you want to ride aren't always riding distance away. There are plenty of options to easily and safely transport your bike on your car, van, truck, or SUV. Which one depends on how many bikes you will be carrying and on the vehicle you drive. We can recommend the right rack for you.

Straps: If you're riding fixed, these can be a great addition to an already great be a great help when trying to do trackstands or other fun stunts on your fixed gear. bike. They may take a little getting used to, but soon you will be able to slip your feet in and out of them with ease. They will also be a great help when trying to do trackstands and other tricks on your fixed gear.

Hydration System: Water bottles and cages are great for carrying your drinks. But, if you need to quench your thirst, hydration systems may be a better option. Insulation will keep your beverage of choice cooler (or warmer) longer and the drinking tube makes sipping more convenient. The capacity can be almost twice as much as you can carry in two large bottles. And, the hydration pack provides a place to stash food, ID, small tools and more.

Eyewear: Don't forget to protect your eyes with sunglasses designed for cycling. It's not just glare you should be concerned about; aiborne debris from passing vehicles is hazardous too. Quality shades provide increased safety, including slightly higher brow coverage for when you're bent over. And the UV protection means less fatigue at of a long days in the saddle.

Lock: Security for your bike is important. Get a good lock and always use it correctly to prevent the heartbreak of bike theft.
