Here is some of the cycling gear I use. (Note: all products are Amazon Affiliate links to my Store–if your happen to purchase any you will help support Jen is Green!) I purchased all of my gear. Most of everything I happened to find on clearance or discount, even my hybrid bike was on sale.
I needed something to keep my food and phone handy. I only have 1 bike jersey with rear pockets and sometimes its dirty when I want to go for a ride, so I needed something where I wasn’t constantly taking my pack off to get to my food. This does the trick. I can fit in my Honey Stingers and my phone, as well as my map! I got discounted for less than $10 on Active GearUp.
Again, I wanted something bigger for longer rides to store my lunch in, along with my extra tube, first aid kit and my other stuff. This pack attaches to the back of the bike on the seat post which is nice since I didn’t have to install a rear rack. Another discounted find on Active.
I got this camelbak when I first started long distance running back in 2010. I hate wearing it running, so now I just wear it biking! It doesn’t hold as much water as I’d like (50oz), but it does the trick as long as I have another water bottle handy.
Another discounted find! I love Timbuk2’s gear–it is so durable! I have a laptop bag that I love, too. But this pack has a giant reflector on the back so that’s nice. It holds my essentials: my bike lock, multi-tool, and patch kit. It also has a holster for a cellphone.
This bike computer was a cheap find, around $13 on amazon. It’s not wireless so it had to be connected, and I just had the techs do it for me at the Downtube for about $11.
Always good to have a pump with you. Mine attaches underneath the water bottle cage.
One of the BEST decisions I made was getting this bike mirror! I got it at EMS and Chris installed it–it is great, especially for commuting.
