All Brooks Products 10% // Non-BrooksÂ Bags Â 30% // Lights 25% // Apparel 10-60% Shoes 30% // Helmets 25%ÂWell, we were listening to Phil Spector's creepy Christmas album, trying to make our inventory melt with our eyes, and we thought maybe a Holiday Sale would be a better way to move all of our amazing products. So we are going to pass along some great savings your way on the best bicycle-related gifts in town. The sale will last for a few weeks, before and after the holidays are over. Â Here are just a few ideas of what we have to whet your appetite: In the bags department, we are fully stocked and fully stoked-- Chrome, Mission Workshop, Ortlieb, Wheelmen & Co., and Brooks England. Boom. The best baggage in town. Why leave your stuff at home when you can bring it with you.
$235Â $210 The Pickwick Bag by Brooks England. $208Â $145Â Wheelmen & Co's Babylon Backpack. Â Waxed beauty!
Handlebar tape and bike lights make for great stocking stuffers, and we carry the best of the best. Â In the bar tape department, Brooks Leather Tape feels good, looks good, lasts forever, and comes in a variety of colors. Â Guess what, we have most of them in the store (and on our Web shop!). Â And as for lights, the USB-rechargeable, waterproof Knog Blinder is a bright delight!
