Got a big, burly chain lock whose metal is still rockin’ hard but with a cover that looks a little rough around the edges? Perhaps it’s letting the steel through to scuff your ride? Lock Sock has you (and your lock) covered. Even better, you can freshen up the look to match your bike or commuter kit.
It’s made from 1000 denier cordura or ballistic nylon that’s tough, but also water permeable. That lets it protect without holding water that could rust your chain or pour out into your bag or down your clothes. Prices range from $25 to $35 depending on print and material. The cover is 38″ long, but with Velcro openings, it can split open to reveal as much or as little chain as you want.
Princeton Tec was selling these limited edition World Cup themed head lamps. Only 50 were made, and proceeds support Neighborhood Bike Works. Not sure if they sold out, reach out to them if you’re interested.
The rest of the bicycle line was on display, which includes the Push (top), a 165 lumen light with side light “pipes” that help traffic see you from your sides and come with various ano color options for the bezel, and the Eos (right) is a small, 105 lumen light that comes with bar, helmet and headband attachments. The Swerve is their tail light that has a large switch to make it easy to use while riding. Up for steady, down for blinking.
The Hubbub Helmet Mirror is a clip-on item that fits virtually any helmet, installs in seconds and retails for $29. Custom colors and logos are available, too.
Wald Racks has added these handy little spacers to adapt their front bike racks to fit forks with oversized legs. The top of the mounts rotate around the rack’s tray structure, and the top of the rack mounts to the handlebar.
