Fall is one of the best times to go exploring by bike. Cooler temperatures, autumn colors and (hopefully) a summer’s worth of miles means that you’re ready to put the bike on the car and tackle that new mountain bike trail or century ride.
But as anyone who’s ever traveled with their bike can attest, it doesn’t travel alone. You need to remember your helmet, shoes, gloves, sunglasses, tools, energy gels and bars — you get the picture.
Sure, it’s easy to throw all that stuff in the back of the car, hoping you don’t forget anything. But this year, try something different with Mountainsmith’s Cycle Cube.
It’s a pack/organizational system that will ensure all your gear comes along, and you can easily access it as needed.
Divided into one large and two smaller compartments, the Cycle Cube is filled with pockets and partitions to put everything neatly in its place.
The 51L capacity gives you plenty of room, while the die-cut ventilation provides breathability to keep things from getting musty. It features sturdy construction with RipStop nylon and easy-to-open zippers — and there’s even a padded pocket to keep your sunglasses safe.
So take the stress out of traveling with your bike so you can better enjoy the ride ahead.
