Commuter Essentials

No two commutes are alike. People carry different items, wear different clothes, ride varying distances, and everyone has their own tolerance for inclement weather. Every staff member in our shop commutes by bike, at least part of the year, and we have several staff that exclusively commute by bike - ask them, and they'll tell you they much prefer it to any alternative. 

Here is a list of items that we collectively agree, will provide a better bike commute for you. Here's the shortcut: Lots of Wool!

Surly Socks

That's right, Socks. No fancy name here, no splashy logos, it's the Surly way. What they lack in flash and flair, they make up in awesomeness.

45NRTH Nokken

The lightweight design maintains full dexterity whether you're in the drops or riding over technical terrain. Wind and water are kept at bay by the outer softshell to keep chilling fall wind and precipitation off your hands. The suede palm adds grip and durability while the merino backing against the hand wicks moisture to keep you warm and dry. - Lightweight design maintains full dexterity for flat or drop bars, or while using pogies - Water- and wind-resistant softshell fabric provides protection without overheating - Axsuede palm adds comfort and grip - Merino blend liner on palm side retains heat and wicks moisture - Adjustable Neoprene cuff works with a variety of jackets and jerseys

Surly Raglan Shirt

Ortlieb Gravel-Pack
$180.00
Ideal for multiday tours and self-supported races, the Ortlieb Gravel-Pack duo offers you a combined payload of 25 liters for additional gear such as mess kits, food, and other "luxury" items. Mounting the Pack to your lowrider rack allows you to maintain a low center of gravity and undiminished off-road agility despite your extra gear. While the Pack’s streamlined design – without inside pockets and a shoulder-strap pad – helps to keep it in the featherweight class, its lightweight, wear-resistant material withstands even the harshest of rock and gravel conditions you encounter on your way. And no matter how wet the weather, your things will stay dry thanks to the proven ORTLIEB-waterproof quality and roll closure. With the QL2.1 system and two lower mounting hooks, the Gravel-Pack remains tightly attached to your rack even when the terrain gets rough.
Ortlieb Atrack
$265.00 - $285.00
Inspired by defining a new backpack category, ORTLIEB designed the new Atrack: the Active Travel Backpack is waterproof according to standards IP67, and is easy to use for all types of travel and outdoor recreation, while always ensuring 100% dry gear. Atrack is an innovative backpack in response to the trend of short trips and minimalism. Designed with modern, active travel and minimalist style in mind, the innovative Atrack is the first of its kind. It defines the Active Travel genre and raises the bar for backpack design in general. The uniquely positioned TIZIP zipper inside the Atrack’s back provides a wide opening offering unobstructed access to all of your gear, no matter how crowded your pack is. Digging through the pack, opening various buckles or straps to find buried items therefore becomes history. Another bonus: the carrying system stays dry and clean during packing and unpacking, because the rucksack component of the Atrack lays face down on its front. The zipper‘s unusual and strategic position is another advantage: it prevents any unauthorized access while the pack is on your back. Atrack is both, a full-featured outdoor backpack and a travel duffle – offering maximum flexibility with just one piece of luggage. The modular system and numerous accessories allow individual adjustments and quick, sport-specific modification of the pack along your trip – to the outdoors or the city. Accessories and compression straps can be fixed to numerous daisy chains. Shoulder straps with stepless length adjustment allow individual adaption of the pack to various body sizes. A breathable carrying system and a padded waist strap with integrated pockets ensure ideal distribution of weight and optimal ventilation. Four zippered inner pockets and internal compression straps guarantee clean organization for easy packing and unpacking. Atrack is PVC-free and sustainably produced in Germany. FURTHER FEATURES - Outer mesh pockets - Removable compression straps - Daisy Chains on front - Watertight passage for drinking tube (hydration system not included) - Internal compression straps - Key hook OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES (each sold separately) - Fixing for ball, helmet, mounting straps for snowboard, skis, snowshoes, hydration system, mounting set for telescope poles
