Clever Cycles (the shop) is still a construction site. We’re looking at opening in June. Meanwhile, we’re selling Bakfietsen at a good clip, and assembling inventory of other kinds. Eventually we’ll sell much of the stuff we carry online, but while we work on getting a full-blown online store going, there’s stuff accumulating in storage that we’d prefer to start moving.
Remember Rainlegs? They’re assless chaps for biking in the rain. They work better than rain pants because you don’t get all sweaty, and you roll them up to wear like a belt until needed. Naturally you need fenders too. Kent Petersen, who rides more than you do, also likes them. They’re Dutch. We thought that we’d be the first US importer, but Wallingford Bike Parts in Louisiana beat us. We’re first in the Northwest, anyway. If you don’t buy some, it will probably rain more this spring, much more.

Next are Reelights, which we wrote about long ago. They are no-battery blinkies, sold as a set, front and rear. Hub generator lighting is the ultimate solution, but costly especially if you ride many bikes, and sometimes overkill for riding in well-lit urban areas; Reelights mean you’ll never get caught completely unlit. We love them on our Bromptons. They come in two flavors: a cheaper, brighter set and one that keeps blinking for a good while after your wheels stop.
