Shovel Research Rod Steward in Black (Not Pictured) $100

The Rod Steward is a handlebar bag support bracket that’s a little more robust than a Pec Deck but not as heavy duty as a Nitto rack. It uses triangulation to give your bag a little big of support, keeping it from flopping and bouncing all around on rough roads. These nifty support brackets are now available in black anodizing (not pictured) for those who like all-black componentry.

ORNOT Women’s Droptail Thermal Cargo Bib Tight $208

ORNOT’s new Winter Droptail Thermal Cargo Bib Tights with two pockets are perfect for temps between 38-60º – i.e., what you’ll encounter on late winter and springtime rides. The brushed fleece thermal fabric keeps you warm, and the extra pockets offer the flexibility to dress differently and carry more things (gloves, sunglasses, snacks, those little heat packs!!!). Now you can spread items across more pockets.

These new tights are built from the ground up with performance and sustainability in mind. The face fabric is a recycled bluesign®-approved knit with a brushed-back fleece, and the endurance pad is made using recycled content. The tights are sewn in a facility powered by sustainable energy via rooftop solar panels.
