2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Last year’s holiday gift guide was so well received that I decided to continue the tradition in 2018. Below you’ll find a list of items that I’ve used and would recommend as gifts for even the most discerning bicyclists.


Bags & Packs

Clothing & Outerwear


Hard Goods & Accessories

Hydration & Nutrition

Maintenance & Tools

When speed and convenience matter, I reach for the Prestaratchet Multi-Tool Kit ($24.95). The reversible design is perfect for tight spaces, and the individual bits/drivers can be replaced when they wear out (mine are still going strong after several years’ use).

Tubeless tire tech isn’t rocket science, but it can certainly be messy. The milKit valve systems ($34.95-$64.95) makes adding and topping off sealant easier (and cleaner),

Silca refers to the HX-TWO ($75) as a travel kit, but mine sees daily use in my home workshop. The tools’ polymer coating offers improved grip, and the heat-treated S2 steel resists wear and rounding out.

Disclosure: The aforementioned companies provided review samples for this article, but offered no other form of compensation in exchange for editorial coverage.
