Supacaz Super Sticky Kush Handlebar Tape
Merlin Cycles price £32.35 (RRP £35.95)
Christmas is the time for festive decorations so jazz up your bike with a well needed colour change. Like a cycling Christmas tree!
Supercaz offer the most wacky bar tape available. However, it isn’t just a novelty.
Their tape has a tacky grip which is soft enough to use without gloves and is thick enough to block out road vibration.
Supplied with machined alloy, laser etched expanding bar plugs, this tape is sure to add a bit of character to any bike.
Merlin Cycles price £39.99 (RRP £49.99)
Staying with the wild and wacky, Melon Helmets offer some fun appeal to a largely bland helmet market.
Meeting the highest quality protection standards, Melon helmets are sure to save your melon from any bangs and bumps.
Guaranteed to turn heads, these helmets are perfect for any fashion conscious cyclist and the fun designs make these helmets an ideal present for younger cyclists.
Bike Hand Shimano Toolkit
Merlin Cycles price £44.95 (RRP £59.95)
As it’s getting colder outside, chances are your bike is going to be off the road for a while meaning you’ll have plenty of time to give her some TLC.
Those bits and bobs you’ve been putting off are on their last legs and those new parts you’ve accumulated over Christmas are gagging to be tried out.
That’s were a good quality toolkit comes in handy.
Bike Hand have bundled together a kit full of all the essential tools from spanners to screwdrivers. It even includes specialist pieces of equipment for those tricky repairs and installations.
If you’re a dab hand with a quarter drive, or you know someone who is, this is the perfect bit of kit.
Lezyne Hecto Drive LED Front & Rear Light
Merlin Cycles price £41.95 (RRP £55.00)
Without putting a downer on the Christmas mood, we can undoubtedly say that it’s going to get a bit dark, dim and generally pretty grim outside.
Therefore, you’re going to need a quality set of lights to get you through to the lighter months.
Lezyne have put together exactly that. A front and rear light set to keep you visible when you’re out and about in the dark.
Rechargeable batteries mean you won’t be splashing that Christmas bonus on overpriced disposable ones.
Easily attachable to your bike and your helmet (helmet mount sold separately), these lights are sure to keep you safe this winter.
Hope Jockey Wheels
Merlin Cycles price £31.50 (RRP £35.00)
As Christmas is the time for decoration, why not sparkle up your rear-mech with these anodized jockey wheels?
Jockey wheels are something that you just don’t really think about. Until it’s too late and they’ve turned into ninja throwing stars. Go have a look at your rear mech – chances are your jockeys are past their best.
And if they’re not, treat yourself to some bike jewellery anyway!
A well-priced gift which will be well appreciated. Improving aesthetics and performance. What more could you ask for?
With Hope’s premium quality materials, you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of miles out of these jockey wheels.
As well as the Christmas Categories on our regular site we’ve created some special boards on Pinterest.
Here’s the Pinterest board for these sub-£50 cycling Christmas gifts…
What the heck is Pinterest?
It’s like an online noticeboard. Or an online scrapbook. Or an online ‘mood board’.
Photos are called ‘pins’. Themed collections of photos are called ‘boards’.
Confused? Just have a look and it will all make sense pretty quick. It’s a visual thang. It’s great for discovering stuff and saving things in a handy way.
