Bookman Clip-On Reflectors

What are you looking at? Reflectors. Why should you care? Because it’s the end of September, and, in North America, that means it’s getting darker earlier in the evening, and you’re hard to see when you’re out running, biking, or walking your dog. These reflectors from Bookman are sort of special because they clip on with a magnet. Add one or two on in a snap- to your jacket, to your dog’s leash, to your bike, you name it. That makes it super easy to remain visible to other people (and those people in vehicles) when you’re out and about no matter what you’re wearing.

Double O Bike Lights

Bike lights just keep getting better, and who knows, maybe that’ll tempt more people to get out of their cars and onto their bicycles. This Double O Bike Light is hassle free: it utilizes neodymium-grade magnets to make it easy to attach and remove. Polycarbonate mounts hold the light in place while you ride, and simply snap the lights off the mounts when you’ve reached your destination.

Plus, the ‘O’ shape allows you to thread the lights on your bike lock for storage- no need to carry them with you. And you know how some bike lights are almost too bright? The Double O uses less bright LEDs but more of them to make sure the emitted light is bright enough but won’t blind drivers, pedestrians, and other cyclists.

Lucetta ~ Magnetic Bike Lights

Neat! These magnetic bike lights are easy to attach and remove from any bike. The set includes one red and one white, and they both switch on with a click and will remain in place no matter what speed bumps or potholes you hit. Select a steady beam, or a slow or fast flashing light. They’re small enough to stuff in a pocket for minimum fussiness once you’re done with your ride.

Sparse Fixed Cycling Lights

If you ride a bike at night, chances are you have appropriate cycling lights (if you don’t, you’re an idiot). And, considering you’re reading this right now on our website, you probably care about well-designed items, so why not upgrade to this set from Sparse? Sleek, uncomplicated, and fixed, so there’s no hassle with taking lights on and off depending on the time of day. Don’t you worry about longevity either; they’re constructed from cast metal and sealed with a silicone gasket so they’ll last for a very long time.

Bivi Bike Hook

Does your bike still not have a proper storage place at home or at work? You’re probably getting tired of stumbling into it every time you come in the front door (or leaving it lonely and awkward in a weird place at the office) and you need a better solution. Here’s yet another bike hook to consider and it’s very no-nonsense, as it is made from one long steel plate and one simple hook. The Bivi Bike Hook attaches to the wall or to the end of a Bivi bench (which makes it perfect for the workplace).

Musguard

If you ride a bike, you need a fender, and if you need a fender, you probably will like the Musguard, a removable, rollable, polypropylene bicycle fender. Simple as can be, the Musguard is lightweight (35 grams) and easily attached: unroll, fold the seam, and tighten the Velcro strap. Remove it whenever you want by undoing the strap and rolling up for storage (see what I mean by easy?). Now on Kickstarter; see video below for demonstration.

Wooden Bike Hook

Is this a minimal bike hook? Yes, indeed, and I’m holding my hand up for a long distance high five here (air-five, as some might say). These bike hooks by Sandra Thomsen are just about as simple as you can get. Do note that they’re intended for lighter sports bikes. You’ll want to triple check that the wall is suitable and that you install the anchors correctly, otherwise you might just have a scuffed up bike and two holes in the wall, and that’s no fun at all.

Bamboo bee Bicycles

Bamboo! Bicycles! Add the two together and you get something that makes sense. Bamboo has a honey comb structure that naturally dampens those bumps along a street, meaning you’ll have a smooth and comfortable ride. More importantly, bamboo is a renewable resource, quite strong, and considerably light compared to other steel frames. To learn more, visit Bamboo bee’s website or their Kickstarter page.

Bike All Bike Shelf

While this bike shelf might seem a little wonky to begin with, give it a second look and consider if it might just work for your bike’s indoor parking space. While the bike itself isn’t completely off the ground, the seat is ‘parked’ on the spot below the shelf with two hooks for bags, accessories, and/or helmets. The surface above gives you a nice resting spot for phone, keys, etc.

Iceberg Wood Bike Hanger

The last thing you need is yet another bike hanger to consider, but this one is too fantastic to not mention. Sure, it’s expensive (I don’t many people that would spend $600 on a bike rack) but just look at those crazy angles. It’s a show stopper. Each piece is handcrafted to show off the beauty of the wood grain from every viewing angle and an easy to mount system only needs 3 standard screws for installation.

Make Bike Rack

I have no idea why this retailer lists this bike rack for $50 more than the designer/manufacturer consult, but it’s good news that there’s the option to save some dollar bills. It’s a simple enough bike rack made of solid wood (walnut or maple), yet you won’t find it at your local bike supply shop- unless your bike supply shop is awesome, in which case some of us are a little jealous.

Oreflector

Nice! The Oreflector is a safety reflective badge for when you’re out and about at night. Whether you’re on your bike, walking your dog, or going for a run, its reflective material shines out to let cars and other passers-by know to steer clear of your soft self. Best of all, it’s not as bulky (or obnoxious) as a blinking bike light clipped on to clothing. Comes as a set of two badges- one mini and one maxi size.
