The Proper Bicycle Accessories

The proper bicycle accessories are just as important as finding the right bike. We have a wide variety of different accessories to make every bicycle rider's cycling experience a little more enjoyable. We have the essentials, like bike helmets from Lazer and bicycle locks from Kryptonite and OnGuard. Practically every cyclist needs a good lock to secure their bicycle. We also have fenders, or mudguards, to keep you dry on those wet days, from SKS and Planet Bike and CRUD and Topeak. There are rear racks available from Jannd Mountaineering for those of you who like to let the bike carry the load for you, which is great for daily commuting or touring. We have all the necessary tools for roadside bicycle repairs, such as: Pedro's tire levers, Serfas hand pumps, CO2 cartridges, metric Allen multi-tools, chain tools, and much more! And, you will need a place to stow all that gear, in which case we have Jannd frame packs, saddle bags, and panniers. These days, it is nice to mount your smart phone to your handlebar when you're tracking your ride or navigating, and so we have a number of different cell phone accessories for bicycles from Serfas and Minoura. You may be interested in bicycle mirrors for keeping tabs on traffic approaching from behind, so we have mirrors from a few different companies. Or, probably the most important bicycle accessory you can invest in from a safety standpoint is the LED bicycle light with a rechargeable battery. The light technology has jumped leaps and bounds in the last few years, it makes no sense not to benefit from it. Early detection on the roadways is the best way to avoid being hit by a motorist. And, we carry some of the best branded lights in the business from industry leader, Serfas Lights. Now, you can get a super bright LED light, which is USB rechargeable, and run your lights day or night to make sure you are seen on the road by motorists and you can avoid being hit.

Bicycle Lights

Let There Be Light!

Another very important bicycle accessory is the front and rear LED bicycle light. Bicycle lights are important for many reasons, the most obvious reason being to see in the dark. Another reason, perhaps even more important but less obvious, would be to be seen easier during the day. Its dangerous out there sharing the roads with motorists. If a motorist is distracted even for a few seconds and does not see a cyclist in time, it could mean the end for the cyclist. Front and rear bicycle lights will ensure that you will be more visible on the road. Modern day LED bicycle lights are now brighter than ever, and the best part is, they are rechargeable lights with Lithium-ion batteries, which save you money. No more spending money on disposable batteries. Just plug and play, and most new LED bike lights are even USB compatible, making it even easier to charge that bike light up wherever you may be. We looked at a lot of different light suppliers before we finally decided to choose Serfas and Knog lights for our customers.

Serfas Lights

From Serfas, we have lights that are great on the street, or on the trail. We have selected a few different models to offer our customers. Here's what we have in stock:
  • Quasars - your basic rechargeable lights, perfect for commuting, easy to install, mount them just about anywhere and they have belt clips, too!
    • Quasar Tail Light 25 lumens... $25
    • Quasar Headlight 70 lumens... $25
    • Combo Pack ...$45
  • USL Series Headlights - a whole lot of light for much less money. The USL series pack a whole lot of lumens for the price. Handlebar mount included.
    • USL-155 Headlight 155 lumens... $40
    • USL-305 Headlight 305 lumens...$50
    • USL-505 Headlight 505 lumens...$80
  • TSL Series Headlights - the total package headlight, incl. flood or spot lens, helmet and handlebar mount, replaceable batteries, USB and wall charger.
  • TSL-350 Headlight...$120
  • TSL-550 Headlight...$140
  • TSL-1200 Headlight...$280
    • TSL-1200 also has a USB port in the battery, you can charge other devices with it!

Knog

From Knog, we stock one light in particular that we have just come to lvoe so much, the Knog Blinder 4. The Knog Blinder 4 is very bright, 45 lumens rear and 90 lumens front, and it has a USB rechargeable Li-ion battery. The really cool thing about the Blinder is that the charging port/cable is built right into the light itself. This feature just makes it easier to charge the light wherever you are.

Knog Blinder 4 (front or rear)...$44.95

Fenders & MudGuards

Foul or Fair?

What's the weather going to be like today? For a cyclist, especially an everyday commuter, the weather can have a profound effect on your day. Fair weather riders need not worry about fenders too much, but those foul or fair riders will want to invest in a good set of fenders to keep themselves and their bike clean. In case you don't know already, fenders cover the wheels of the bicycle. When the tires get wet and spinning, the inevitable water spray will occur.  Uncovered, the rear tire will give you a 'skunk stripe' up the center of your back, and the front wheel will spray onto your face and into your mouth sometimes, too. It's just lovely! With fenders, you'll avoid getting covered in muddy water from the road. This will not only keep your clothes clean, it will also protect your bicycle. Every cyclist can benefit from a set of fenders. Full wrap fenders provide the most wheel coverage, and will keep you the cleanest. However, not all bicycles can be outfitted with the full wrap fender variety, in which case, clip on fenders will do nicely, instead. We have both types of fenders in stock here at Eddie's. We have fenders from SKS, Planet Bike, Crud & ToPeak.

Crud Raceguards


"The Crud Raceguards are very flexible, durable fenders, and a shop favorite!"

The front fender is a downtube fender, and the rear attaches to the seat post. Its not full front wheel coverage, but it works quite well.

ToPeak Defender

The ToPeak fender set is great for bicycles with suspension forks! The rear clips to the seat post, and the front fender inserts into the steerer tube.

Full Wrap Fenders


Full wrap fenders provide the most coverage, but they won't necessarily work on every bicycle. If you are unsure, bring your bike in and we'll check everything out for you.

Bicycle Locks

posted Nov 2, 2015, 3:42 PM by Employee EddiesBikes   [ updated Dec 28, 2015, 3:40 PM ]

Lock or Lose It

A bicycle lock is a great item to have for anyone who rides a bike. If you don't lock that bike up, you'll probably lose it. Its a damn shame people steal bikes, but it happens, and sometimes it happens even if you have it locked up. That's why it's a good idea to purchase a good, strong, name brand lock, like Kryptonite, to protect your bicycle from theft. Kryptonite is the leading manufacturer of bicycle locks. In fact, the name Kryptonite has become synonymous with locks, much like Kleenex is to facial tissue. Kryptonite has a lot of different locks to offer. We stock a wide variety of different bicycle locks to suit everyone's needs. We carry both cable locks and U-locks, either with combination locks or with keyed locks.


Currently, we are stocking the following models of locks from Kryptonite.
  • Krypto-flex 815 combo-cable 5'x8mm 
  • Krypto-flex 1018 cable (keyed or combination) 6'x10mm
  • Krypto-flex 1218 cable (keyed or combination) 6'x12mm
  • Krypto-lok Series 2 Mini U-lock (blue or orange) 
  • Krypto-lok Series 2 Mini w/ 4' cable lock
  • Krypto-lok Series 2 Mini (3x7)
  • Krypto-lok Series 2 ATB (5x9)
  • Kryptonite Disc Lock
The U-lock in conjunction with a cable lock to secure the bicycle wheels is a surefire way to prevent theft.
Kryptonite is offering some cool colors in their popular U-lock line up to help personalize the lock a bit with a favorite color.

The combination cable lock has always been a best seller her at Eddie's. No keys to keep track of, and a reasonable amount of security for bikes under $500.

Bicycle Helmets

posted Oct 30, 2015, 3:26 PM by Employee EddiesBikes   [ updated Nov 2, 2015, 11:13 AM ]

We just received our pre-season order of bicycle helmets from Lazer! We have lots of different styles of helmets in stock, in lots of different colors. The helmets start at $35 for the Lazer Compact, an inexpensive helmet with an adjustable turn-fit system and a visor. It provides the protection you need, and it has a reasonable amount of ventilation with its 12 vents. The Compact is a great choice for the cyclist on a budget. Next up, at just $45, we have the Cyclone. The Cyclone is great for the rider looking for a do-it-all helmet, perfect for casual riding and weekend rides. The Cyclone has 19 vents, a visor, and an advanced turn-fit system (ATS). Following the Cyclone is the Lazer Beam. The Beam was our best selling helmet last year, and at just $50, it's still a bargain. The Beam has an Auto-fit system, which really seemed to please a lot of different riders. It's so easy to put it on and just go. No adjustment necessary. It has a small, built-in visor, and it has 16 vents to keep you cool when things heat up. This year, we also began stocking the Lazer Beam w/ MIPS technology. MIPS tech protects the rider's brain from damage done by rotational forces due to angular impacts. The Lazer Beam with MIPS retails for $75. Next up, we have the Lazer Vandal bike helmet at $68. The Vandal features a nicer fit retention system, called Rollsys, an adjustable head basket, 16 vents and integrated visor. The Vandal has a super cool look to it, and it looks and fits like a much more expensive helmet does. Our top shelf Lazer helmets are the O2 and the O2XC. The O2 helmets are super lightweight, they have Rollsys fit systems and adjustable head baskets. An integrated rigidity brace system protects the rider against multiple impact crashes. Coolmax padding and a whopping 24 vents. Another cool feature; you can install a rearward facing LED light in the O2 helmets. Insect nets and winter padding are also available with the O2 helmets. Last but not least, we have a helmet designed specifically for cold weather riding, the Lazer Dissent. The Dissent is a really well designed helmet. Cold weather riding is a lot simpler with this helmet. There's a removable section that covers your ears and the back of your neck to keep you warm. Again, its removable, so if you get too hot, or its warmer out, it can be removed to cool things down. Furthermore, the helmet has vents on top that can be slid open or closed, further improving your ability to regulate your body temperature. There's a removable visor, and a clip on the back of the helmet to secure your goggles strap. The chin strap has a magnetic buckle that is easy to operate with mittens or gloves. It has never been easier to keep your head warm in the cold!
