Bike Gear I Love
Some girls like jewelry and shoes, my vices are bikes and bike apparel.
Like most people, though, my gear closet is constantly evolving as I find new favorites and upgrade old items. On this page, you can find my current favorite pieces of biking gear that have proved themselves out on the road or trail.
Mountain Bike Gear
I have spent countless hours on the trails and have tried and tested many pieces of mountain biking gear over the years. In these posts, you’ll find my mountain bike gear favorites from specific gear reviews to gear round-ups and gift guides. Let’s get ready to ride!
Bikepacking & Bike Touring Gear
My bikepacking gear is ever-evolving because no one trip is ever the same, right? From hot desert overnights to multi-day bike touring adventures, I’ve tried and tested a lot of different gear. On these pages, you’ll find my favorite picks as well as some tips to help you plan your gear strategy for your own two-wheeled adventures.
Road & Gravel Biking Gear
Truthfully, I’m still relatively new to gravel biking, but I’m getting a crash course on what to wear gravel biking and road biking. I’m hoping to build out this section more over the coming months, but for now, enjoy the posts I have written on gravel and road biking gear!

Online Bike Shops
Backcountry is my go-to online shop. They have a ton of mountain bike apparel, gear, components, accessories, and even fully-built bikes.
Only selling bike-related gear, Competitive Cyclist is the ‘sister’ company to Backcountry if you’re looking for bike-specific gear.
I usually order all of my ‘technical’ bike gear from Jenson like tools, components, and maintenance supplies.
REI has a good selection of bike gear for all riding styles. If you become a member you get some cool member perks.
I have bought a few fully-built mountain bikes from Mike’s Bikes in California and love their customer service and fast shipping.
evo is a PNW-based outdoor great company and has a good variety of bike gear. I do find that they are out of stock a lot.
Steep & Cheap
This is Backcounty.com’s outlet site. You can find some amazing deals, especially at the end of bike season. Things go fast, though, so don’t wait!
The Pro’s Closet
TPC is an awesome site to buy used bikes or even sell your own bike. They also have a small selection of gear and components – used and new.
Specific Bike Brands
My all-time favorite bike gloves! Not only are they durable, but they’re also super fun.
Osprey makes my favorite bike packs from the mtb-specific Raptor/Raven to the Manta/Mira overnighters.
I LOVE Rogue Panda bikepacking bags. They’re super durable, incredibly well designed, and fun! Choose your own colors & patterns.
I use the NEMO Disco 30 sleeping bag for my bikepacking adventures and love the quality and design. It feels like sleeping on a cloud!
I use both My Medic pre-made first aid kids and their awesome medkits and mods. They literally have a kit for everything.
Revel Rider is an awesome women-owned and designed bike brand company from Bend, Oregon. Love the Flow Pants!
I sweat a lot and I like big days on my bikes. The Tailwind Endurance Fuel (mandarin orange) and Recover Mix (chocolate) have been game changers.
