The buycycle gadget guide
2023 is here! We have resolutions, we want to go higher, faster, further. But at buycycle we also like to say: New year, new fun! To share it with you even better, we've put together a list of bike accessories that are as versatile as we hope the new year will be. From practical to beautiful or just quite funny, everything is there. So that the new year on the bike will be a very special one.
1. for the on-number-sure-goers
Who loves his bike... who also worries about its safety, after all it was expensive and it is the faithful companion and in the cities but bikes are stolen like anything and such a beautiful then and... Do not worry. A safe solution to let thieves of all kinds only longingly eye your bike, because stealing is virtually impossible, is the Kryptonite lockFahgettaboudit from the New York series. It is one of the most secure and resistant bike locks on the market. 18 mm hardened special steel are not even cracked with bolt cutters.
If you want even more security, you can also attach an Abus alarm system to the frame: Triggered by pressing a button, turned off with a key, it shrills at the slightest movement of the bike with 100db off - the volume of a chainsaw.
2. for tourers and tinkerers
Long, extended bike rides through nature - how we look forward to it. But the further away you are from home, the better prepared you want to be for any incidents. When literally times the air is out, the mini hand pump from BBB Cycling becomes your hero: Small, handy, chic and extremely powerful. If you prefer to pedal instead of pumping and have a little more space in your backpack, you can fall back on the comfortable variant of the battery air compressor, which makes your tire ready for use again in no time. However, this variant is more suitable for bike packing tours, after all, the good piece weighs almost half a kilo.
Thanks to the BeeMyBox you can also start cycling more minimally packed. It is a locker on the bike, perfect for keys, cell phone, wallet. Or for the ReHook, an ingenious multitool that provides you with almost all the necessary tools from spoke wrench to tire lever for your bike in one handle. If you want to protect your hands while repairing and riding, Roeckl is the right choice. The famous glove manufacturer now also has cycling gloves in its range that are made almost exclusively from recycled materials.
3. for aesthetics
The bicycle has always been a design object. Those of you who appreciate these visual aspects of their two-wheeler will love the Oi bicycle bells. Minimalist, sleek and a wonderful sound they also give off.
The young Dutch company Stasdock goes all out and celebrates the bike as an interior object. Not only are these wall mounts for your bike and its accessories incredibly practical and space-saving, they also look unbeatably good and allow your bike at home the staging that it deserves.
4. for party people on the bike
To the club by bike. Nebulite makes that not only possible, but cool. The Berlin label's unique bags and backpacks glow in all colors thanks to LED threads that can be controlled via app. They're waterproof for the ride to the party, and with sound-to-light technology, your bag sparkles in time to the music. An eye-catcher wherever you cycle - or dance.
5. for summer souls
The warm days still seem far away, but we'll get you ready for them anyway with these sunny accessories. With the MovedByBike Surfboard Rack you can combine your favorite summer hobbies: Bike to the beach with your surfboard with you, ready to hit the waves. For those who get hungry afterwards and can still take a little extra charge: The crackling grill fits on the front of the handlebars and allows you to enjoy grilling as far as the bike path will take you. The wine for the beach picnic can then be clamped into the Baiki multi-purpose rubber (to which you can also attach your cell phone, your water bottle, your tools - and pretty much everything else) and off goes the summer adventure!
6. for the extra clean look
As much as we like to plunge into the mud with our MTB or race through puddles with our road bike - some of us then also want the bike to shine and glisten properly again after the tour. Not to mention that regular bike cleaning is not only good for our eyes, but also for the bike itself. If you want to give 100% right away, get a mobile Kärcher with full power - it's also suitable for house and yard! Environmentally friendly polishing is done with the "Care Your Bike" cleaning kits from Bio-Chem, a young company that uses biodegradable and sustainable substances for its cleaning agents and does not test on animals.
And to keep your home clean when you take your bike inside, Velosock offers bike covers that keep the dirt off your floors.
7. for urban night owls
Getting lost in the urban jungle is all too easy, but can get pretty dangerous pretty quickly, especially for cyclists:in. For more visibility on the bike, there are two great innovations: One is Garmin's radar taillight. It makes you with 5 lumens luminosity not only visible from afar but warns you with visual and audible signals of vehicles approaching you from behind. It's also smartphone compatible and has nine hours of battery life. Laser Lane Trail lights are a similarly exciting solution. These tail lights not only draw attention to you, but also use two laser light beams to mark the exact lane of your bike - so no one passes too close.
Day and night a must is and remains the helmet: Hövding convinces with a chic and safe product, the airbag helmet. Like a collar, you wear this special helmet around your neck, the many integrated sensors trigger the integrated airbag in the event of a shock or impact, which ideally protects your head and neck. Similarly safe and even more space-saving is the foldable helmet of Closca, slim packed and yet safe you cruise with him through asphalt canyons.
