Clockwise from the top left: Help the cyclists in your life become their own mechanics with the new Complete Guide to Bicycle Maintenance and Repair ($32) from Rodale — it even includes links to updated web tutorials. Add some twinkling festive cheer to any bike with Knog Frog lights ($7); they attach almost anywhere on a bike increasing visibility. For the serious Winter rider Barrier Lobster Gloves by Pearl Izumi ($70) are a must for keeping fingers toasty warm on the coldest rides. A classic wool jersey is a staple of cycling fashion and the JJ's LS wool jersey by Luna ($130) is a blend of wool, silk, and lycra — be prepared for your cyclist to wear it both on and off the bike. New wheels upgrade any road bike and this aluminum wheelset by Shimano ($300) is lightweight and with aerodynamic spokes. A Multitool by Lezyne ($29) will keep your biker prepared for many mishaps that can occur on the road; it comes with Allen wrenches, Phillips and flat head screw drivers, tire levers, and a bottle opener! Cold rides require full leg coverage, and we have our eyes on Pearl Izumi's tights with chamois ($120), which offer full coverage, wind barrier protection, and plush padding.
Help your road warrior ride in style with these holiday gifts. From lights to maintenance, all cyclists — men and women alike — will want this gear.
