2017 Holiday Buyers’ Guide

The joy of the outdoors is one that’s hard to beat…though maybe the joy of the holiday season is a close second!

Find a way to give both this year and find the perfect gift for the special someones in your life by shopping at Cycle Solutions! By investing in quality product from a local store, you’ll know you have the perfect gift for your loved ones.

So, let’s get to it and check out some of what we have this year!

Fat Bikes

Picture this scene: the storm has ended, the sun is out and it’s a beautiful day of freshly fallen snow. Sure, you have to dig out your bridge and car, but maybe it can wait a couple of hours for you to go on a little adventure. A few hours on a fat bike is the answer!

Rocky Mountain Blizzard 10 can take on anywhere! It has an aggressive geometry and wicked fat tires that are built for every sort of terrain (including those super snowy days).

Take a look at some of the specs by clicking here. This ride is also super affordable, coming in at  $1350.

The Surly ICT and Specialized Fat Boy are also great fat bike options and you can take a look at both on our online store!

Ski packages

From skate to classic to backcountry skis, we have you covered for your skiing adventures.

Cross-country skiing is toted as one of the best work-outs you can do and we have skis for all ages. Let us put together a package for you and get a special deal when you bundle together skis, bindings, boots, and poles!

This year we have some special backcountry skis and poles from G3. The Findr XCD 78 are for the traditional skier, with a classic sidecut that’s ideal for exploring new areas with an XCD base grip.

The G3 Ski poles have removable straps, great grip, powder and trekking baskets and are collapsable. We also carry G3 tools for avalanche preparedness such as a shovel and snow probes.

We’re also carrying some amazing backcountry Madshus options, including the Annum 78 skis. The widest skis in the backcountry line, the deeper progressive sidecut and metal edges are built to go off-trail and the waxless base will let you climb in all kinds of conditions.

Stocking Stuffers

Running down the stairs during the holidays to open up your stocking is a definite thrill. Make the unveiling even more exciting by adding some swag from Cycle Solutions.

These ornaments will do perfectly in anyone’s stocking or hanging up on a tree. You could also add a pair of wool socks from Icebreaker or a new hat! OR if you can’t make up your mind as to what to get, buy a gift certificate!

If you have a particularly BIG stocking, buy the cyclist or mountain biker in your family some new studded tires. We all kinds of sizes and brands to suit your needs.

Garmin Products

We all like a new tech gadget to play with on Christmas day. The Vivoactive 3 has just come into the store and is very snazzy.

We have a new line of jackets, for both men and women, and that are built for different adventures. Some are perfect for warmer winter days and layering…others are perfect for those colder days!

Talking about layers… we have all kinds that are also perfect for stocking stuffers! And right now, buy two women’s t-shirts and get them both for 30% off.

Cyclist on your life

The cyclist in your family has to be remembered, too! Just because the weather is a bit frightful it doesn’t mean you have to put away the road bike for months at a time.

A Castelli or Sportful cycling jacket will keep you warm and dry in the snowy weather (and remember to pick up some winter tires for your bike, too).

This is also the perfect time to buy your loved ones some new summer outfits, with amazing savings on our jerseys and bibs! Go upstairs and look through the massive 50% off rack!

But what if the weather is just a bit too snowy, but you still want to get in a good ride? The cyclist in your fam could definitely use an indoor trainer set-up.

We carry a ton of options from Tacx, including rollers, basic trainers, and smart trainers! This beaut is the Booster, which is one of the most powerful basic trainers.

To learn more about these amazing options, check out our blog post that features these Tacx trainers. Let us help you put together an entire indoor cycling set up, including the trainer, block, and special wheel!

Our Spin Classes are also starting up soon and they’d pair perfectly with a new trainer You can buy a 10 or 20 class pass, or a season pass. Stop by the store for more details or give us a call!
