What’s in a $70 dollar bell? Some of the best crafted, premium brass and stainless steel, the Spurcycle Bell is built to last and fits on just about any bike from Brompton, vintage city bike to your super modern road bike.

Do you keep your bike locked outside while you work or home? Ever come out to your bike after a rain or snow storm and the saddle is soaked? It usually means you're going to end up with a wet butt. But this is entirely avoidable with the stylish Fahrer Kappe Saddle Cover. It offers high quality material and waterproof nylon that will keep your saddle bone dry. So when you come out to your bike you can brush off the snow and pull off the cover and you have yourself a dry ride! Find it right here!
For some keeping their bicycle outside is the only way they can store it. However this leads to some problems down the road when it comes to longevity or upkeep. At BikeParka they created a stylish, compact and unique bicycle cover that features a “lock slot” so you can lock your bike to your fence or to a street bicycle post without any awkward locking with a cable or having to remove the cover. It keeps off the snow, keeps your bike dry from heavy rains and is UV resistant so your paint looks as fresh as the day you bought it! Found right here!
One of our favorite gifts is Brooks products. It is elegant, one of the most comfortable saddles ever made and with a little care, last a very long time. Brooks also makes grips, Proofide (keeps your leather saddle healthy!) and even saddle covers to protect your saddle from the elements! We could not decide which Brooks product was our favourite so you can find all our Brooks products right here!
Bike theft is a plague here in Toronto and cities around the world. Here at Curbside we have become huge fans of ABUS locks and our go to lock is the tough, high security lock that is the ABUS Granit 53! It receives a security rating of 14 out of 15 and was designed for high theft cities like London in the UK! Like in London, thieves in Toronto commonly use a leverage attack that bends a u-lock open but the Granit 53 lock has been proven to me the most resistant to such attacks to a lock! Made in Germany with high quality steel, this is the lock to get for your beloved bicycle. You can find it right here and you can also read more about how to protect yourself from theft on our blog!
