Why upgrade such a great bike?


We know you love your bike and that’s how it should be! There’s no better way to start and end each day than with time spent in the saddle. Enjoy taking in the sights and sounds of the city with the gear you need for a great ride. You’ll probably start thinking you want to make your bike faster, comfier, or maybe better for the commute.


Our urban and commuter gear selection has everything from lights to help keep you safer day and night to racks and panniers that will store all your work essentials for that daily commute.

Racks & Panniers

Be Seen

See and be seen. Lights are the best wheel upgrades in terms of safety and the worst in terms of appearance. Needless to say – safety first. You have to be seen on the bike, with no compromises. But how do you choose the light that will make you seen, but the light itself will not be „seen“ and will keep your handlebars clean? You don’t have to compromise with Bontrager lights, they have great performance and thanks to the Blendr system, everything will be elegantly integrated on the stem.
