Gift Guide 2015: The Commuter

Day in, day out, through snow, through rain, through gloom of night, it's time to ride. Let's face it, nobody likes being stuck in traffic; your bike's a tool in the War on Gridlock, a way to slice through the city any day, any hour. 6. Lights on fenders and 2. lights on your bike keep you from earning a story about "that time I hit a deer on the trails" that you really don't want. Carry all your important (and fragile, and can't get wet) gear in 1. German Ortlieb bags on a 3. German Tubus rack, while 7. Portland's Finest breathable jacket, 5. shoe covers, and helmet cover from Shower's Pass keeps you cozy, even in the midst of the storm.
