It’s that time of year again, when the malls seem to be in need of “people thinner”, the streets get a bit more chaotic, and I begin asking “Where’d the daylight go?!?”. Thankfully there’s only a few more days till the shortest day of the year. This also should be taken as a warning that trees are popping up indoors, and that the jolly roundish fellow, dressed in red and white, will be entering homes and leaving behind little (big?) surprises for you and your loved ones.

We like to think of ourselves as helpers of Santa, so we’ve put together a bit of a guide to aid you in the gift giving. Check out these select items and you can guarantee there will be smiles during you holiday season.

Let’s start with some stocking stuffers. These bits come in under $15 and will be useful and fun.

Pedro’s tire levers – Strong, Light and Useful!
Patch Kits – Lighter than carrying a tube, and just as effective.
Trik Topz – Get some bling’ on! These replace your valve caps with an bit of customization
Park Tool Folding Hex Set – This robust multi-tool will help you with your trailside repairs. It’s the strong silent type…

Odi O grips – These are not the lockon version, but they will hold onto the bar allowing excellent traction and control.

Looking for gifts in the under $50 range? Here you go!

Lezyne mini floor pump – This pump is a high pressure pump (160 psi) with a built in pressure gauge. It functions as a mini-floor pump allowing for fast an simple inflation. We also carry a lower pressure, higher volume lezyne pump which is a hit with the mountain crowd.

Knog Lights Combo pack – Perfect for the commuter, these are very bright and simple to operate.

Comfort Saddle – Is your special place getting sore? This saddle will help smooth out the bumps providing the cushioning where you need it most.

Life Cycles – This is not a mountain bike film, rather a film about mountain biking. Visually stunning, this will be a winner for anyone who likes any type of cycling.

$150 and under – for the person who deserves a little bit more.

Chromag saddles – Designed in Whistler, these saddles have been proven to be long lasting, and comfortable. Our head mechanic rides these exclusivelly!

Chromag Ranger Stems – Beautifully crafted in BC, we have 70mm and 50mm in stock!

Wellgo B065 Pedals. These pedals offer a large low profile platform, giving you exceptional grip when you are carrying your momentum through corners, off drops and down the steeps.
