I run Cyclelicious as a labor of love, but I do appreciate those of you who choose to contribute a dollar or two my way by purchasing items through my Amazon affiliate online store.
I occasionally look through the sales reports to see what you buy. I can’t see who the purchasers are, but I can see the items (and the occasional returns). If you’re looking for last minute Christmas gift suggestions, here’s what people who read this bicycle blog buy.
British cyclist Max Leonard focuses on chapters in the lives of those racers who finish last in the book Lanterne Rouge: The Last Man in the Tour de France. This book wasn’t published for the USA market, so Americans probably won’t receive this in time for the holidays, but reviews are favorable.
Richard Hallet’s The Bike Deconstructed looks like an enjoyable book.
Who knew The Rules from the Velominati is now available as a hardcover book?
A fantastic coffee table book for every road cycling fan is Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and Workshop.
Last but not least among cycling books, take a look at Rusch to Glory by Rebecca Rusch.
What else did you buy?
If your electronics run out of juice on long rides, consider this BikeCharge, a 2600 mAh Li-ion battery with USB connectors to charge your phones, GPS, and USB rechargable lights on the go.
High visibility vests with reflective trim remain a popular item.
There’s a Jeep Brand Comanche 29er “trail” bike for only $255. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Mechanical disc brake up front, rim brakes on the rear wheel.
Thanks so much for your continuing support. Keep the rubber side down!
That Richard Hallet book looks like my garage.
A big pile of scattered bike parts? 🙂
I still owe you that book. Will you be around next week?
Your BikeCharge link is broke.
Thank you! Link is fixed now.
Interesting list of books. Very tempted to buy the book about the cyclists that have come last in the Tour de France because it sounds like it could be an interesting read.
