Bicycling is a great activity. More and more people are discovery how much fun it is. I'm 59 years old and in March 2011 I became an avid recreational bicyclist. I ride exclusively on paved multiuse trails. So in the last five years I've discovered many products that can improve your bicycle, and add safety and enjoyment to your adventures.
Tire Pressure Gauges
First is the Tekton. It features a lighted display and nozzle (which is great for night time). One button controls turning on, and automatically turns off after 30 seconds to save battery. Has a molded non-slip grip that fits in your hand perfectly. Accommodates three measurements PSI, BAR, and kPa. Uses one CR2032 lithium battery. Battery is easy to access. Use a penny to insert into round cover. Sells any many places for about $10.
Second is the Slime Digital Gauge. Model 20017. This gauge also features a green lighted nozzle and display for night use. Rubberized edge works great to keep it firm in your hand so it doesn't slip. Accommodates three measurements PSI, BAR, and kPa. Has auto shutoff to save battery. Battery access requires removing 5 tiny screws. Time consuming design. Uses CR2032 lithium battery. Sells at many places at around $7.

Cateye Padrone CC-PA100W Wireless Computer
This is perhaps the best model bike computer on the market. The CC-PA100W model Padrone not only performs flawlessly, but is wireless, and affordable. I have owned this model since March 2015. And I've been very happy with my decision. This also has the largest display on the market. And is very thin. The features include: current speed, total distance, trip distance, elapsed time, average speed, maximum speed, clock, and auto power saving. Battery is a CR2032. Setup is super easy and fast. This is available on Amazon for $56.53. I highly recommend the Padrone CC-PA100W.
Feedback Sports Bicycle Stand
The Feedback Sports Bicycle Stand is a fantastic product for parking or storing your bicycle. At 5.9 pounds, it's compact and light, which makes it fast and easy to move. Spring loaded arm accommodates either front or back wheel. Also has attachments so you can connect multiple units. Many small bike shops use these throughout America. True this is a luxury item, but at $40, it's certainly affordable and very cool to own.
