Holiday Season Gift Guide

With the holiday gift giving season just around the corner we thought we would whet your whistle with a few products that we think would be great to receive and equally fun to give.

We have broken down the gifts into a few categories based on price, so, find your comfortable price level and come on in for a visit.

Under $25

Items in this range are great for your bike riding friends or as stocking stuffers.  Here are a couple of our favorites -

DringDring Bells - Handpainted in beautiful Montreal, these bells come in many whimsical flavours and, as the name implies, have that classic "dringdring" sound when rung. $25
Crane Bells - quite simply, some of the most classic looking bells around and our #1 selling bell.  There are 4 models to choose from, all with slightly different tones.  $18
NiteRider Lightning Bug and Stinger Lights - available in 6 colours with easy on/off removal these little lights pack a punch.  The 1/2 watt Stinger taillight is visable up to 1km away.  $17-$25


$25-$75

PDW Radbot and Spaceship Lights - straight outta Portland, these lights offer amazing visability and great design.  The taillight is one of the brightest we've seen with some interesting flash modes and an built in reflector.  The headlight offers a cool blue tint and plenty of light for roaming around the city.  $30-$35
Peterboro and Nantucket Baskets - we have many different colours, styles, and shapes for the perfect look and added carrying capacity on your bike.  A great addition to any bike. $50-$60
Basil Shopper XL and Blossom Panniers - Basil style and value are hard to beat.  Numerous styles and colours - everything from the feminine Blossom to the more masculine D'Azur series. $65 and $70 respectively. 
Nutcase Helmets - our #1 helmet line with colours and patterns for every taste.  Keep it classic with the solid colours or go a little wild with many of the patterned versions.  Price range $50-$65.





$75-$150


Brooks B17 Leather Saddle, Brooks Small Saddle Bags, Accessories - we are very proud to have Calgary's largest selection of Brooks saddles and accessories.  Brooks products add a touch of class to any kind of bicycle.  We have 9 different models of saddles, bags, tape, grips, toestraps, and even the Oxford rain cape.

Po Campo Bags - handmade in Chicago these bags are perfect for those gals that want to cycle, bring some goodies, and do it in style.  3 styles to choose from - the Handlebar clutch, Bungee handbag, and Rack bag.  Simply gorgeous!  $95-$170

 $150+

Brooks Colt Leather Saddle - This "new" saddle is a reintroduction of a classic model from a decade or two ago.  Hand hammered copper rivets, colour options, included rain cover, and a shape similar to the venerable Turbo - this saddle is perfect for that classic stell road bike restoration or as a nice addition to your current steed.  $220
Brooks Oxford Rain Cape - One of the nicest bike wear items we have ever seen!  Seam taped, waterproof, reflective, rolls up and attaches to your seat.  $330

Our gift guide isn't complete without mentioning the ultimate gift - a new bike!  We have bikes starting from under $300 for a simple 3-speed city bike and new 2011 bikes are already starting to trickle in.  Give us a call or pop in for a visit - we'd love to chat!
