      2020 Christmas Gift Guide for Biking Enthusiasts

      Christmas shopping is set to look a little different this year. While we may not be battling the usual Christmas crowds, falling down online rabbit holes in an effort to find the perfect gift is no fun either. Plus, nobody needs that level of stress after everything else 2020 has thrown at us - are we right?     

      Luckily for you, outdoor enthusiasts are probably one of the easiest groups of people to buy for. The world of biking comes loaded with tools, gadgets and pieces of clothing designed for safe, comfortable rides.  

      Whether you’re buying for a seasoned cyclist or someone new to the roads, we’ve rounded up a list of our top 10 goodies from our favourite brands that help us ride easy.

       

      Bike pants 

      Cycling in jeans is no fun, and your favourite waterproof pants aren’t always ‘meeting appropriate’. Fellow Vancouver company Kit and Ace have created the ultimate ‘Commute Pants’, which take cyclists seamlessly from bike to office. 

      Duer’s Live Lite Pant is also made with breathable fabric and crafted with stretch for maximum comfort, while rocking a streamlined silhouette. Who said cycling gear couldn’t be cool?

       

      Flat Sole (non clip) Biking and Casual Shoes

      Let’s face it, biking shoes don’t always make the most aesthetic footwear. Luckily, the Five Ten Sleuth DLX unisex shoes have a dotty rubber sole to effectively grip pedals and safe your shins from bruising. The design also provides great toe protection and its easy-care suede will transport any cyclist from bike to night out. 

      Helmets 

      Helmets are the ultimate essential for any cyclist, but it’s not always easy to find one that suits you. Our favourite helmet brands include Thousand helmets for their vintage, eye-catching designs and modern-look Bern Union Helmet for urban riding cool. 

       

      Cycling Socks

      We get that socks for Christmas may be a tad on the cliche side as far as Christmas gifts go, but The Sock Guy’s fun designs will bring a smile to the face of any rider, while keeping toes toasty. 

       

      Front Baskets and Racks

      From holding your groceries to stashing your parcels, the handiness of front baskets and racks knows no bounds! Wald Front Baskets and Racks is one of our favourite brands for good quality, easy fitting baskets and racks. 

       

      Commute Tools

      Cyclists never know when they're going to get in a fix with their bike, so it’s wise for newbies and experienced riders alike to carry a multi-tool. The I-beam multi-tool from Park Tools is lightweight, with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8mm hex wrenches as well as a flat blade screwdriver to solve any minor issues and keep your bike in safe, working order. 

       

      Gadgets/Tech

      Bike gadgets are the modern cyclist’s new best friend. Whether you're looking for navigation help, anti-theft tech, cycling metrics, lights, or communication with your friends and family, the SmartHalo 2 has everything a cyclist needs to keep them feeling safe and secure on the roads. 

       

       

      Winter Warriors

      Winter cycling isn’t for the faint of heart, but with the right gear it’s certainly a lot more appealing! Your face and hands often take the brunt of those icy winter winds, so treat the rider in your life with a high quality baclava, like the Arc'teryx MOTUS BALACLAVA  and a pair of Bar Mitts. Trust us - they’ll need ‘em! 

       

      Handlebar Phone Mount

      Taking phone calls or snapping pictures can be a tricky business mid-ride, so gift the cyclist in your life with a Handlebar Phone Mount from Quad Lock. It's the lightest, strongest and most secure smartphone bike mount on the market, and keeps phones in place over any bump or jump.

      We admit, we may be a little biased. But our selection of bike bags here at Two Wheel Gear is kind of second to none. From panniers and backpacks to handlebar bags and seat packs, Two Wheel Gear bags are an essential part of any cycling trip. You're welcome!

      2WG NEWS ACTION - BIKE TO WORK DAY

      CTV News: Lonny Balbi - Bike to Work Day Founder & Two Wheel Gear Advocate

      Recently I connected with Lonny Balbi, founder and organizer of Calgary Bike To Work Day happening Friday, May 1, 2015. Lonny is a longtime bike commuter and truly outstanding guy. This year, Lonny is donating $1 for every bike that shows up at the event's headquarters in Eau Claire Market to the Nathan O'Brien Children's foundation. With an average of 4,000-5,000 commuters stopping by for breakfast (catered by Lonny's law practice), Lonny is in for making a pretty substantial donation from his own pocket.  

      Lonny took a real shining to our newest suit pannier and we couldn't have been more excited to collaborate. This year Two Wheel Gear is honoured to sponsor Calgary Bike to Work Day and donate our Classic 2.0 Garment Panniers as event prizing. We set out to solve a problem for daily bike commuters riding to work. Lonny is helping us spread that word.  Watch the below videos from Global Calgary and CTV Calgary Morning News as Lonny's charm is put into action talking about his passion for Bike to Work Day and his killer suit and tie tucked neatly in his Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier.
       
       

       

      Two Wheel Gear Works for Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra

      Last year, we received an amazing letter from our friend Anton in Seoul, Republic of Korea. This year we are sending him one of our new Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier's to test out in his incredible travels. Stay tuned for the follow-up review coming from Anton in the next few months. This is his story. 

       

      Dear Two Wheel Gear,

      Bike Commuting in SeoulI just want to thank you for your great garment bag. I work for Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and thousands of people are watching me while on stage. My dress has to be just perfect. But the problem is that I am a passionate cyclist (as well as passionate musician). I've tried many options of transportation my tails (tuxedo) before I found Two Wheel Gear. The biggest problem for me was that I could not carry my suit on myself because my viola is there so the rack pannier was the only option. The other pannier garment bags on the market are kinda...narrow and short. This "compromise" is not acceptable for my situation.

      My normal daily commute is only about 14km (round trip) to the rehearsal hall but much longer on the weekends. It is up to 30-60 km depending on where the concert is. I am not a light commuter. On the concert days I have to haul lots of stuff: my viola, concert dress and shoes, extra shirt,  towel, toiletries, lunch/dinner as well as my emergency repair kit (it is not good to get a flat tire on the way to the concert!!!), spare tube, tube repair kit, gloves, set of wrenches, chain tool and chain lock. All this stuff easily goes into the Two Wheel Gear garment bag! The climate here in Korea is very hot and humid in the summer and freezing cold, often snowy in the winters. I commute all year round regardless the weather. I just see no reason not to commute by bike in the rain or snow. With a proper gear it is even more exciting. You know :) 

       

      Anton's Classic Bike Suit Bag Setup on BikeI have never experienced really heavy showers while on the bike with Two Wheel Gear bag, but the bag has passed the test in my shower room at home so I have no worries about coming rain season in July-August.

      As you see on the pictures, my commuting route takes me through busy streets, bike paths and sometimes unpaved roads.

      Best regards,

      Anton

      Feedback from Rick in Northern Vermont

      One from Rick...

      Contact Form Submission:

      Name: Rick 
      Body: I have used you bag for commuting year-round for 5 years in Northern Vermont and I would still be using it except that it was stolen so I have ordered another. It has stood up remarkably well to cold, snow, salt, slush, sleet etc. It is the only bag that works conveniently for a suit and, if it is not convenient, you will not use it long for a daily commute. It is  well constructed for shedding water. I know permanently water-proofing a flexing fabric is problematic, but if you could come up with a coating that lasted as long as the rest of the bag, I would pay what ever it costs. Thanks for designing it and for still being in business.
