Sometimes you don’t want to have to take our word for it. Like when we said that frame bags were ideally suited for those long thin bike snacks you have been dying to carry (hot-dogs, cucumbers, enchiladas…). With such a great community of riders in the Always Riding stable we thought, why not pass it over to you guys for some top tips and heartfelt recommendations. Here then are our ‘tippy top’ top 10 products - time-proven staples and flashy newfanglers - as recommended by you, our humble hombres and modest mujeres (that means women, I am told, but don’t take my word for it...)!

muxu-indigo-jean_folded-2

Number 1 - Muxu Ride Japanese Denim Indigo Slim Fit Jean

“I'm not a jeans person, but I could wear these all the time....will need a second pair.”

“Once again, Muxu leave you annoyed that you put up with other jeans, and got sold on their marketing for so long.”

“They feel comfortable when riding and they look good off the bike as well.”


pdw_bird-cage-black-4

Number 2 - PDW The Bird Cage Bottle Cage

“It’s sleek and beautiful to behold, and, bike thieves permitting, it won't migrate over winter.”


chrome-citizen-nite_1

Number 3 - Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag

“Every time you think you could find a use for this bag, the makers, Chrome have already thought of it and you've yet to discover it. Chrome has done a superb job on this bag, every detail has input by a team of professional cyclists who know what they want from a commuting bag.”

“Chrome bags' reputation of being built to last is well known. Nevertheless, I was deeply impressed by the quality of this product. It's tough as a bag of old nails; so far it's comfortably survived the daily commute despite being packed it to the brim, dragged through Welsh rain and dropped multiple times.”

“Fit tons of crap in it. Comfortable. Waterproof.. etc etc.”


outrider-colour-block-jersey_front

Number 4 - Outrider Colour Block Jersey

“This jersey brings a smile to the face every time I glance down to notice its surprising combination of colours and fabrics - that somehow work, and keep growing on me. The cut, quality and design are awesome.”

“Jersey is of an amazing quality, colours are vibrant!”


henty-wingman-backpack

Number 5 - Henty Wingman Backpack

“This bag is great. It fits everything you need it to fit (including lunch). It looks great. It feels very comfortable when riding and doesn't get in the way… I highly recommend this bag to anyone considering getting it.”

“I manage to squeeze in a laptop, suit, shirt, tie, shower kit, towel, work shoes, gym shoes, lunch, D-lock and a few other bits and pieces without too much trouble.”

“After a 40 minute ride to work clothes are in great shape with no wrinkles. Very happy with this product.”


silca-hx-one-toolkit_open

Number 6 - Silca HX-One Home and Travel Tool Kit

“As always great service, packaging and delivery from you guys, not to mention the stunning tools from Silica, have used them a lot so far and they are beautiful to look at and use, the price reflects the whole unit, top notch, highly recommend.”


dzr-h2o-shoe_black

Number 7 - DZR H2O Shoe v2

“Very good shoe, look great, very practical and very waterproof.”

“This is my second pair of H20s. The first pair were much loved, much worn and held up well during two-years of indulgent London riding. What can I say? They are simply fantastic. They’re solid, their rigid soles are great for power riding but not too rigid to deter walking and they are, well, waterproof. Plus they look good and smell good. Get yourself a pair. You won’t be sorry.”

“They're waterproof, really soft leather and look super cool… Highly recommended great looking shoes on or off the bike.”


spurcycle-bell-black

Number 8 - Spurcycle Bell

“Everyone already knows that this is the best bell. Not sure who would even need to read another review. Nothing else comes close."


giro-empire-slx-road-shoe_blue

Number 9 - Giro Empire SLX Road Shoe

“They are the lightest cycling shoes I have ever worn in this world!”

“The shoes are amazingly light and fit brilliantly. The lacing makes complete sense and allows for custom tightening up the length of the foot. There's no denying that they are pricey, but they are totally worth it.”

“Amazing shoes, stiff, stylish and so comfortable.”


showers-pass-skyline-pant_black

Number 10 - Showers Pass Skyline Pant

“Quality , fit and comfort excellent along with fast delivery. For the price and compared to the alternatives fantastic value. It was a pleasure to cycle without that crisp packet feeling… Just buy a pair.”

“The form fit and stretch panels of these beauties is a revelation.”

“Overall very impressed, Bike clothing always seems to be a compromise and these seem to be one of the better ones.”
