A small pleasure is
blasting up a climb on your morning commute or training ride, and once over the top, kicking back and enjoying a coffee break on the descent.
A small pleasure is two and a half hours into a cold, wet and windy ride, and the sweet and hot tea in your bottle is still hot.
Actually that's a large pleasure.
After five plus years evaluating and discarding several different types, we like this one the best. Does it fit in a bottle cage? Yup. Will it keep my preferred beverage hot? Yes. Can I use it with just one hand? Fer sure. Does the cap create a reliable seal and is easy to operate? Yes, indeedy.
Also of course it will fits in your car's cup holder, so It's pretty practical all around. If you're a corporate type we suggest you find a way to expense this guy. You'll use it everywhere.
The ElevenGear R•Mech T-shirt
We pay homage to that crafted piece of bicycle jewelry, midway between intricate and simple. This bauble perched off your rear wheel actually does something very useful: It turns the longest roads into your playthings. With this nifty little gadget you can ride as far as you can see on a clear day, make it up any road that they are crazy enough to pave (as well as trails), and be back in time for dinner. It answers to your will by mere attenuation of cable tension. The symmetry of the jockey wheels, the unity of the parallelogram shape and its movement under tension are all about function, and so, by at least one definition, it has an inherent beauty. It is this beauty, plain-spoken function and potential that you honor: Presenting the R•MECH shirt …
Maybe you ride one to change the world in your own way. Maybe you ride one because you have the stones to do it daily in big city traffic. Maybe you ride one to show the world you don't cotton to the constant marketing demands made upon you to consume expensive, overwrought and unneeded trinkets. Maybe you ride one because you know your way around the sprinters lane, the pole line, the apron, the flying 200 and the miss and out. Maybe you ride one because of simplicity, or you ride one purely for style. Maybe you ride one for all these reasons, or some of them or even none of them. To you we proudly clear our throats and say: "whatever." Presenting the FIXIE shirt …
The Elevengear Thermal Bike Mug
This double-walled stainless steel vacuum mug holds ~15 ounces (44 cl) of whatever you put into it and keeps your coffee hot or your Slurpees still slurpilicious for hours. The cap is simple, effective and easy to wash. It's 8.5 inches tall (22 cm) and so is only a little taller than a regular-sized water bottle. If you prep the mug by filling the bottle with hot water to pre-heat it before replacing the hot water with your beverage of choice, you'll find it stays hot for hours. Fill it up with hot tea, lemon, honey and you are set for going for a ride with a warm beverage always within your grasp. Double-walled stainless steel, manufactured in China, imprinted in the US.
