Giordana Brooklyn Cycling Cap … $14.99
What could be more quintessentially “Brooklyn” than a Brooklyn cycling cap? These caps are made by Giordana and printed with the world famous Brooklyn Chewing Gum logo. Brooklyn Chewing Gum has been produced since the 1950’s, in Italy of all places. Brooklyn Chewing Gum sponsored an Italian cycling team of the same name during the 1970s and early 80s. And when Spike Lee famously wore a Brooklyn Chewing Gum cycling cap in his portrayal of Mars Blackmon in the 1986 film “She’s Gotta Have It,” an icon was born. Show your Brooklyn pride with an authentic Brooklyn cycling cap, available at Bicycle Roots in black, white, or yellow.

Zefal Lock N Roll Anti-theft skewers are a brilliant accessory designed to foil bike thieves. They work by replacing your bike’s quick release wheel and seatpost skewers with a skewer that locks closed. The only way to open the locking skewer is to turn the bicycle upside down, which, if your bike is secured to a pole or back rack via a U-Lock, should be impossible. Because of this mechanism, Lock N Roll skewers don’t need any keys, which means that you have one less key to carry and keep track of.
