E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
June 30, 2022
Summer is finally here and it's time to saddle up and ride your beach cruiser bike off into the sunset. Before you go make sure you've got all the accessories you need for a fun and safe bike ride. As Michael Kors said, "I've always thought of accessories as the exclamation point." Of course, he was talking about clothes, but we think it applies to bikes equally well.
Are you looking for the perfect pannier? We've got a nice selection of panniers and bags to stash your stuff. Try the Rear Rack Bag V2. It has two zippered compartments that can hold everything from groceries to school books. The Pannier Bag w/Clip V1 is especially capacious with six compartments. Both bags are easy to attach to your bike in various positions.
Never set out without your helmet. You knew that, right? If you want a really nice, rather retro, very safe and secure helmet, you've come to the right place. The sixthreezero unisex helmet has an ABS shell for maximum protection. The visor and ventilation system help to keep you cool on hot rides. It comes in two sizes and lots of colors.
You should always carry water with you on every ride. You never know how long it will be until you come across potable water. Installing a water bottle cage on your bike makes it easier. Made of tough alloy metals and easy to install, this accessory is a no-brainer.
Here it is. The cutest bike basket in the business. It's also one of the most versatile. This SunLite basket can hold books, baguettes and brie, and blossoms. Attach it to your bike for an outing to a park or lakeside and haul your picnic, too. If it gets a little dirty you can just hose it off.
Bike bells are much more than children's playthings. They are essential on busy bike paths that are multi-use. Many trails require bicyclists to ring their bell when coming upon pedestrians from behind and to let them know you are passing. Whether they are required or not, you should have one for safer rides. It never hurts to be able to announce yourself when out riding.
Don't go anywhere without a quality bicycle lock. Your beautiful EVRYjourney 500W is an investment and you need to protect it. Sunlite bicycle locks come with or without the cable. The weatherproof nylon coating can take a beating and the hardened shackle is secure.
To fender or not to fender, that is the question. The answer is that it depends upon where you ride. Now if you just want fenders for your 24" EVRYjourney because they look fabulous, then go ahead and get them. But if you are wondering if you need them, consider your climate.
The primary purpose of fenders is to protect you and the bike in wet conditions. Riding through puddles and rain without fenders results in great muddy streaks of water splashing up your back. Fenders also prevent dirty water from being thrown into your bike's innards. They protect your brakes, china, and derailers from mud.
So if you ride in the desert or other dry conditions, you can probably go without. If you live in Seattle, you should get a set.
Excited to ride now? Tune up your bike and accessorize it with the gear you want for this summer. Heading for the trails will be that much more fun.
