MTB Vibes Upcycled Bike Parts Jewelry
MTB Vibes is more than a jewelry brand, it’s an art of living! This one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry is made from recycled bicycle parts combined with gold coins and modern shapes creating flashy and trendy earrings for the badass shredder. Joanna Yates, owner and creator of Mountain Bike Vibes started the brand when she noticed that many bike parts were thrown away and not recycled. “After working at Thunder Mountain Bikes, I noticed that they were getting rid of a lot of bike parts that I could use to recycle and make some cool jewelry. I recycle used chains, tubes and spokes to make jewelry that doesn’t look like it came from a dirty ATV.
Earrings from $ 22.00 on Etsy at MTBVibesJewellery.

Ombraz Leggero armless sunglasses
These sunglasses from Ombraz look like a pair of normal shades from the front. From the side, however, it’s clear that something is missing, and for bikers, that’s a good thing. Instead of the temples, the Leggeros feature an adjustable drawstring to keep the lenses in place and on your face. Say goodbye to pinches and headaches from a helmet, and keep your glasses safe where they belong – even on the roughest trails.

PNW Fern Kids dropper post
Chances are, your child’s bike doesn’t have a dropper post yet. Young riders can benefit just as much as rents, if not more. Most of the kids we know like to ride with their seats slammed low for easy jumps and jibs, but as soon as the climbs start it’s all a frown and legs in grape jelly. The PNW Fern allows adults to store the hex wrench during the ride and effectively ends the saddle battle. No more excuses kids, it’s time to climb.
MSRP: $ 199. The PNW Fern is currently out of stock, but available on the waiting list at PNW components.

Betcha doesn’t have one in your toolbox. This nifty little tool seeks to prevent tears associated with internal home cable routing. It also includes tools for working with the electronic shifter and e-bike cables so that it stands the test of time.
MSRP: $ 59.99. Available at the hinterland.
RevGrips suspension handles
RevGrips, basically handles that move slightly back and forth, much like turning an off-road motorcycle, although a lot less than you probably think. The main purpose of the movement is to reduce hand fatigue and arm pumping. As Rev notes on their website: “Your hands are already moving on stationary handles. This is why you have blisters, hand fatigue, an arm pump, etc. You are trying to grab a stationary object as your body struggles trying to hold on to you. The RevGrips make it much easier to control your bike, with the hands moving as before, except with your grip rather than against it. The handles are made in the USA and are fully rebuildable.
MSRP: $ 89.95. Available at Global cycle.
