Hello everyone, although BikeCommuters.com operates on a shoe string, we still have to pay hosting fees so we have become an Amazon.com affiliate and as a Prime member we will be sharing deals in a monthly basis. Please share if you find something cheaper or if something is not quite a good deal by leaving us a comment and don’t forget to white list us if you have an ad blocker.

Here is some of the stuff currently on my “wish list” and stuff that I bought:

I have 4 bikes and my Garmin 520 only came with 3 mounts so here is a deal for a Garmin Bike mount:

I have an affinity for bicycle bells and the Knog Oi has an interesting shape and sound, I may pull the trigger and buy one of these soon:

I recently bought these Kenda Kwest tires for my folding bike. These are really hard to find at bike shops but here they are if you need them:

I bought these leg warmers for the wife and she absolutely loves them:

If your bike does not have quick releases, this Lezyne wrench is small enough to carry on your seat bag:

Are you a Hybrid Shopper?

For the most part I do my bicycle related shopping all online. There are a few exceptions like clothing and helmets, those items I prefer to try on because my body isn’t quite a standard fit. I’ve got short arms, long torso, short inseam and a big head. Good enough visual for you?

When I do shop online, I will check out some of my normal haunting grounds such as Ebay, Amazon and the various online brands like Performance, Nashbar and Pricepoint.l often will search for coupon codes before I start shopping. A good source would be Frugaa.com. This site actually gives me coupon codes for all sorts of online retailers as well as some of the sites I mentioned above.

I know that there’s a big push to shop at a LBS, trust me, I do. I usually will got there to purchase an actual bike or other hard goods such as parts like chains, tires, tubes, lubes and helmets. So in a sense you could say that I’m a hybrid shopper, online and LBS. Would you consider yourself a Hybrid Shopper too or do you stick one or the other?

Good news from Pearly’s

Remember a couple months ago, we reviewed Pearly’s Possum Socks? Well, Duke from Pearly’s has some good news to share with everyone:

Pearly’s volume has grown significantly over the last 12 months and we are now getting far better prices on our raw materials…which allows us to lower the list price. So…I am really excited to share that Pearly’s now have a much lower list price of only $38 bucks a pair!! We are so stoked to be able to do this price reduction, I think it is going to open up the awesomeness of Pearly’s up to a much larger group of people.

That is huge news, indeed. I am sure a few people stayed away due to the high price of these wonderful socks, but now the lower price point means they’re much more affordable. Do yourself a favor this winter, and track down a pair of Pearly’s…your feet will be glad you did!
