3 popular cycle and sport publications pick their favourite choices for Christmas.
“Axiom Modular GrandTour Series panniers are waterproof and ultrasonically welded, not sewn, featuring Sonictech polyester construction for light weight and durability. Available in 60, 45 and 30-litre sizes.”
Super B 29-Piece Tool Set – “Cone wrenches (13 mm, 14 mm, 15 mm and 17 mm), 15-mm pedal wrench, a freewheel remover for Shimano HG cassettes and a bottom bracket wrench are just some of the tools in the Super B kit. When the wrench on your list gets this gift…well, let’s just say you’ll be able to drop off your bike for repairs for a while. It’s almost as if the wrench should thank you for dropping off your bike too for the chance to put the tools to use.”
Axiom pumps – “It is Day 2 of the 2012 Canadian Cyclist Gift Guide, and today we suggest … a new pump. It may not seem like a very exciting gift, but it is one of the most useful things any cyclist can receive, especially if your giftee is still struggling with an older model. Pumps have come a long way in the past few years, with greater gauge accuracy, lighter weight and faster inflation. Norco’s Axiom line has a number of excellent models, as does Specialized, Park Tools, Topeak and Blackburn.”
