Fall is the best time to commute by bike, and the following products will make your ride faster and more comfortable.
Felt York Bike ($730)
This steel steed, with leather accents, stands out on the bike path. The integrated front rack and tool roll are practical, while the flip-flop rear hub lets you choose between a single speed or fixed-gear setup.
Giro Aspect Helmet ($150)
The Aspect has a clean design and 19 large vents for maximum airflow. A proprietary fit system and padded chin strap ensure premium comfort, and a removable visor keeps the sun out of your eyes.
Club Ride Jack Flannel ($90)
Moisture-wicking polyester and underarm mesh vents keep you cool, while reflective accents keep you safe. Zippered chest and rear pockets carry your everyday kit.
Club Ride Cog Jeans ($95)
The Cog jeans are sturdy enough to take serious abuse yet stylish enough to wear into the office. They're made from a denim that has Lycra for stretch, a gusseted crotch for unrestricted movement, and a raised back for when you're hunched over the bars.
Knog Oi Bike Bell ($20)
The aluminum, brass, and copper Oi bells fit cleanly on your handlebars and have multiple tones to create an unmistakable sound.
Mission Workshop Meridian Alpine Jacket ($455)
The Meridian Alpine is a fully-taped, waterproof-breathable shell made from Polartec NeoShell. Bike-specific features include a tailored fit, side zippered pockets, and a removable helmet-compatible hood.
Blackburn San Quentin U-Lock ($50)
A bike lock is not something to skimp on. The San Quentin locks from both ends, while the hexagonal design makes it harder to cut. It also comes with a $4,000 theft-replacement guarantee.
MiiR 25L Commuter Pack ($160)
Thanks to a roll-top design, this pack is expandable. There’s also a side zipper for easy access, a 15-inch padded laptop sleeve, and a DWR-coated nylon shell.
Musguard Fenders ($32)
Musguard fenders are sleek and easy to install. They also roll up and fit in your pocket when not in use.
Light & Motion Urban 350 Light ($50)
The waterproof and rechargeable Urban pumps out 350 lumens, while smaller side lights make you visible to traffic. A charge indicator lets you know when the battery is low.
