Bike Accessories: The Most Popular in 2019
sixthreezero's Top Rated Bike Accessories
Our number one bike accessories tried and true, year in, year out are our front baskets. 50% of our riders say that they love to put some form of a basket on their bike, albeit usually in the front.
Most common is the wire front basket. A wire basket is great because it mounts to either the axle or the head tube. It can support a lot of weight, is durable, painted, and won't rust. It has plenty of room to fit all of your items.
The next most preferred basket from our woman riders is our front wicker basket. Without a doubt, it looks great on any of our sixthreezero bikes. This is because its brown hue offsets the brown frame color nicely.
Another popular bike accessory is fenders. Most of our bikes come with fenders, but some don't. The ones that don't, people love to put the fenders on their wheels for the classic look. It also prevents water splash up if you ride in an area that tends to have a lot of rain and puddles. As a result, fenders are great to have to protect your clothing from excess water.
Seats and Cupholders: Customize Your Ride
Moving downwards, the next accessory is the seat. Many riders opt to change the color of their seat. Generally when purchased bike seats are often white, brown, or a black. Believe it or not, the choice of seat is something very important to sixthreezero riders.
Moving down the list, I would say a bell. Of course, who doesn't want to have a bell? It's a frequent accessory purchase because it's inexpensive and adds a nice touch. Plus you come up behind someone you can give them a little ring, ring, to let them know that you're coming up fast. So that's always fun.
After that, we have cup holders. That's a popular bike accessory people love, especially the recreational riders. It's a convenient place to store a drink for cruises around the neighborhood or by the beach. Especially if you want to keep it cold. Some of the ones we offer have insulation. So throw your tin can in there and you're off and riding.
Other Notable Bike Accessories From sixthreezero
Moving after that, there are some other things we sell. None as popular as the ones mentioned before. We offer our surfboard racks, rear bags, and lights as well. So, lights are actually another common one after bells. Our riders tend to not do as much night riding. As a result for us, lights aren't as popular as they might be for some other bike brands or bike stores. This because a lot of road cyclists may ride early in the mornings.
And as you know some mornings can be dark out if you're up early enough. Hence light is a great addition whether its early morning or they're riding late into the night. Again, usually, our cyclist rides in the daylight hours, but we do sell front and rear lights. which important. There's a slew of other accessories that exist on the market, but that wraps it up for our most popular items.
The Latest Bike Accessory Trends of 2019
In 2019, I'm seeing a lot of cool new bicycle trends coming out. The integration of technologies is becoming prevalent in bike accessories. Some things I've seen that have done a good job with technology are in the light category. If you're interested I would check out Kickstarter.com. This site is a haven for up-and-coming startup businesses. The bike lights featured do some cool things that attach to the wheels and stay balanced when riding. There's also a GPS technology coming out that can go on your bike. This offers integrated ways of tracking your mileage and navigating your riding path.
