Don’t FREEZE! Dress the part.

so winter has been slow to come this year, but we are pretty sure it is going to get cold.  Here are a few items that we are stocking that will really make your winter riding more enjoyable.  These goodies will work both on the road or mt bike.

 Stay warm with the CRAFT  Thermal Bike Jacket.craft-jacket.jpg

Gore Wind Stopper chest and arm panels keep you warm and protect your core in the coldest conditions. Flex Fleece fabric provides additional protection while also managing body moisture. Ideal with a proZERO base layer underneath.

This is the sweetest Jacket I have ever seen for the price.

Pearl Izumi Gavia Glove


This glove is nice and thin but still warm. It is one of the few winter cloves that offers some padding in the palm.

We stock this both in mens and womens versions.

•AmFIB® and AmFIB® – Block fabric combination for water and wind protection •Silicone screened palm for a performance grip •Articulated Neoprene stretch wrist gusset for ease of movement •Low-profile wrist closure with locking zipper •Soft Microfleece wiping surface •Contents:60% Nylon/25% Polyester/5% Neoprene/5% Synthetic Leather/5% Polyurethane

Keep those toes warm!


These toe covers from Pearl Izumi block wind and water.  They are not as warm as a full bootie or dedicated winter show but they will do the trick on mosr fall days.

Cyclone Toe Cover

•AmFIB® – Stretch and AmFIB®-Block are both wind and water resistant •Finger loop for easy on and off •Reflective element for nighttime visibility •Soft Microfleece lining for added warmth •Durable rubber sole • Recommended for road shoes with external cleats

This WINDPROOF base layer from CRAFT is a shop favorite.


It will allow you to wear fewer layers on the coldest days you will see.  We run out of these every year.

The ultimate base layer for cold and windy conditions. The  Gore WS Short Sleeve features Gore’s lightest ever windproof, 4-way stretch fabric panel to date. Gore WS is strategically applied to Pro Zero fabric in order to maximize protection where you need it and ensure moisture transfer from the skin. Minimize your layers while protecting your core with our new Gore WS Short Sleeve.


Night time.. Yep it is dark! Better light up!

As the days have gotten shorter we find ourselves riding in the dark more often than we might prefer. 

This year we have began to stock lights from Light & Motion.  We have been testing these lights both in the woods and on the road.  We are confident that you will be impressed with what Light and Motion brings to the table

They make lights that use HID, LED and Halogen bulbs. 

Check them out at:

We will be stocking these 3 models all winter.

The ARC Li-Ion


Are you a serious 24hr competitor? Or do you just need the brightest, whitest light available for your local night ride? Now you don’t need to drag around a heavy old battery. There’s a new king of the jungle in HID lighting systems. The ARC Li-ion turns night into day and its super light; super compact, 300g Lithium Ion battery pack allows you to ride further and faster. The ARC Li-ion’s High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp provides 13.5 watts of intense natural light that is 3 times brighter than comparable halogen systems. A feather weight battery, multiple output levels, low battery warning and auto shutoff are just a few features that make the ARC Li-ion the new king…






Finally! The promise fulfilled, Light & Motion produces the world’s first super-compact, high powered LED rechargeable bike light. We utilize a 4 watt Luxeon™ Star Power Light Source, the world’s brightest LED offering up to 85 lumens and an incredible 10,000 hour LED life. Combine this with a T.I.R. (Total Internal Reflectance) acrylic reflector and you have a super compact 240g light that doesn’t just let you be seen, it lets you see.

An industrial NiMH battery is integrated into the light, so no fumbling with cheap consumer AA cells, or separate battery pack and cord to untangle when you get to your destination. Charging is as easy as plugging in your cell phone, and with our proven DT/dt charging profile the batteries will last over 3 years, or up to 500 charge cycles



The Stella!


Asphalt, dirt, adventure or trekking; the new Stella 180-L packs a long list of features into a very small package. Light & Motion is proud to introduce our new super-compact, high-output LED rechargeable bike light, Stella!

Simply put, Stella provides twice as much light as the comparable single-LED systems currently available. By making use of the latest LED technology, Stella provides 180 lumens of ultra-white light, burn times surpassing 5.0 hrs on the highest setting and a total system weight of 300g!

Chris, J and few good friends attended a JORBA trail day at Allaire state park.  We put in a few solid hours of trail work and then a good mt bike ride. This was a well run and very well attended trail day.  We re-routed a worn out old section of trail and replaced it with a new section that is super flowy and fun. If you have not been to Allaire it is well worth the drive.  It took us about 50 minutes from the shop.
