1. Bike Tools
Every cyclist always needs more tools. Bikes have many parts, and many of those parts require specific pieces of hardware to adjust, cut, crimp, torque, and true.
Even if you think the cyclist in your life has a workshop full of tools, odds are there is still something they need—or would appreciate having a spare.
Cyclists can never have enough inner tubes. Even if your cyclist rides tubeless (if you’ve heard lots of swearing coming from the garage when they’re trying to put on a new set of tires, that probably means they ride tubeless), it’s always great to have tubes on hand in case of flats, to give to a buddy, or because they have a bunch of other uses as well.
3. Bike Socks
Nothing put a personal touch on a cyclist’s kit like some fresh socks. Whether you want to go old school pro with some shorter white ones, new school cool with some tall black socks, or unique individual with some bright and colorful ones, socks always make a perfect stocking stuffer.
4. Bike Helmet
Even if your cyclist hasn’t crashed (that you know of) in a couple years, odds are they wouldn’t say “no” to a new lid. Bike helmet design has come a long way recently, and new models are lighter, more aerodynamic, and cooler (in both senses of the word) than ever before.
5. Bike Shorts
Shorts are usually something that cyclists tend to keep far past the time when they should be retired. Nobody wants to ride behind a cyclist in a pair of worn out old shorts—due to their tendency to become see through with age. Do your cyclist and his buddies a favor, and give him some fresh lycra.
Turn the cyclist in your life into the life of the party with the Ahrens Bottle Opener. Yes, that is a bottle opener that mounts on a bike. And yes, it will be the coolest gift they receive this year.
Cyclists are at heart vain creatures, with an urge to display their feats of strength for the broader world to appreciate. Sometimes sharing a ride on Strava just isn’t enough. Sometimes the world needs to see the feats of strength. That’s what action cameras are for.
Also, they’re excellent for staying safer on the road, since almost everything that happens is captured on video.
Odds are your cyclist’s water bottles are filthy, germy mess. They may very well think they are clean, but unless they’ve been removing the…you know what—let’s just leave it at they need new bottles.
