Did you know that every month we make a video and article showcasing our top-selling products? We sure hope so, because if not you are seriously missing out! Below is a strategically formatted list of our top selling products for the month of November 2020. While inventory is a bit hit or miss, there are still great products that you might want, need, or absolutely have to have and hopefully, you learn a thing or two as well. We have shock pumps, chains, night lights, and chain lubes in the mix this month. Check it out!
Do you have SRAM Eagle on your bike? If so, I always suggest having a spare chain at home, especially on a riding trip. For only $33 you can save a trip or weekend ride by having one of these on deck. The great thing about all SRAM Eagle is its cross compatibility, meaning this SRAM GX Eagle chain will work on SRAM SX, NX, GX, X01, & XX1 Eagle. So even if you don’t have an issue but a buddy who rides SRAM Eagle does, you just became a hero! In addition to having a spare, it’s a great part to replace every few months of heavy riding. By replacing your chain more often, you make your chainring and cassette last longer and those are much more expensive to replace than this SRAM GX Eagle 12 speed chain.
While Muc-Off is a bit newer to the lubricant world for bikes, they certainly know what they are doing. This Muc-Off dry chain lube is great for dry conditions and will keep your bike shifting smooth and quiet on long rides. As a plus, it is bio-degradable and smells like laffy-taffy banana flavor! While we wouldn’t recommend putting it in your mouth, it is cool that it's softer on the planet where we actually ride bikes. We can always get behind a product like that!
This RockShox High Pressure shock pump helps add or remove air from your air suspension, while not Rockshox specific, it works on many forks or rear shocks. Max pressure of 300psi with an air bleeding valve so you can precisely dial in that air pressure.
This is also a great shock pump for your air suspension. It does many of the same things as the Rockshox pump above, yet it is made by Fox. Actually, it has all of the same features as the RockShox pump, but it’s $3 cheaper! But if you are like me then you like to match brands with suspension, then choose accordingly, the Fox Factory High Pressure Shock Pump.
This might be one of my favorite products to sell after a customer buys a new bike. The DT Swiss Star Ratchet Kit 54t bumps up the engagement on your rear hub to 6.66 degrees of engagement. Once you ride with a higher engagement hub, it’s a luxury you do not like to go without. This kit only works with DT Swiss star ratchet hubs, so make sure you have one of those before you buy. But if you mess up, we offer hassle-free returns… so that’s cool.
While the time change and loss of sunlight are not exactly my favorite time of year, at least this NiteRider Lumina 1200 headlight makes it easier on my soul. With 1200 lumens, this bright and powerful NiteRider light will light up the trail so you can shred. With 4 different light modes and a run time of up to 18 hours, you can be shredding all night long! Throw a second one of these on your head with the head mount, and now you have two lights for twice the shredding!
