No really, books about how people dress on bicycles. We're not kidding here. We assume it's so you can figure out how to dress when you go ride your bike. Let me see, should I wear my herringbone, my seersucker, or just go with tweed? Decisions, decisions. If you're looking to upgrade your sartorial splendor on the bike, start with the appropriately named Cycle Style.
When you finish this epic, you can start in on Cycle Chic. And finally, if you've read both these books, then go find Cycle Dork, probably best found looking in the mirror. Zing!
Ahhh, yes, the wheels of innovation continue to turn. Literally, in this case. Adaptrac lets you adjust tire pressure on the fly. Need more traction going downhill, bam, drop the pressure with the push up a button. Better traction going uphill, bam. Quick nitrous hit to give you a hit of energy, well, not quite yet.

ADAPTRAC is a multi-component system comprised of special patent pending
hubs, a dual control valve and a C02 power pack/regulator. Tire
pressure can be raised or lowered while riding with a quick press of the

displayed on analog gauges mounted on the handlebars. The system
utilizes 12x142mm rear and 15mm front axle standards – wheels can be
removed as you would normally. ADAPTRAC uses readily available,
rechargeable C02 tanks ranging from 4 to 20 ounces so you can carry only
what you need. You can now tune your tire pressure to the trail – in
eBikes are hot, and not just for delivering food in New York. Specialized's entry into the market, the Turbo, is pretty slick. And with the integrated battery in the down tube, those delivery guys in New York are gonna love it, since it's illegal to use regular electric bikes on the city street. The Turbo looks very much like a regular mountain bike.
God forbid you just used a tent. Or a tarp. But a pop-up camper for your bike? Is that really necessary? Seems like a lot of extra weight to save a few minutes of tent setup time. Just get one of those pop-up tents if you really need to shave a few minutes off your tent setup. Yours for a mere $899.
Haven't written about Woody's Custom Fenders for a couple years, 5 to be exact. But they're still making excellent customized wooden fenders, and now that Spring is here, albeit unofficially, it's time to bring the bikes out. Stay clean and dry with their awesome fender.
