The best...practical cycling gear
Crank Brothers Multi 17, Topeak MiniRocket iGlow, and more
Crank Brothers Multi 17
Carrying a small multitool can make you feel safer “even if you never have to use it.” This pocket-size set includes a chain tool, two screwdrivers, and a variety of wrenches.
This safety light works harder when a cyclist most needs to be seen. Built-in sensors detect moving vehicles as well as the fading of the sun, triggering a flashing signal that motorists just can’t miss.

Topeak MiniRocket iGlow
You need a pump, so why not one that doubles as a rear safety light? The iGlow mounts easily on the back of a bike’s seat post, and its rechargeable LED glows red when switched on.

This “burly” bike rack mounts on a vehicle’s trailer hitch, making loading and unloading “a snap.” It has a built-in lock system and pivots downward to provide easy access to your vehicle’s trunk.
