Mmmm Pizza: Park Tools Big Wheel Pizza Tool

Continuing the ‘foodie’ posts, I am going to review something that I actually have! Seriously! I got this as a birthday present for my boyfriend (bit like Homer giving Marge a bowling ball for her birthday) and it is a deadly little contraption for the kitchen. Not only does it LOOK like a bike, but it has a super sharp blade and cuts up pizzas into perfect little edible triangles. It is really easy to use as the back of the bike is the handle and the blade sits into a plastic holder when you are not using it (a bit like the ones you use to sit a front wheel in a turbo trainer-but mini sized!).

This is a great ‘stocking filler’, or if you are bored and want to play how-many-things-can-I-get-off-Chain-Reaction-Cycles-for-less-than-€20 (I managed 5, which included bar ends, socks, tubes and stickers – be creative!). Available from CRC @ €16

Mountain Bike Sandwich Wrapper

In looking around the deepest darkest Interweb for bike bargains, cute mtb clothing and interesting accessories, sometimes items appear that just HAVE to be mentioned. Etsy is a huge community of users that buy and sell handmade items, and one member has created… wait for it….  reusable mountain bike sandwich wrappers!

Granted its not the most useful thing that has ever been made, but I suppose it saves you on those mini plastic bags to wrap your sambo in, AND makes you look cool in the lunchroom, AND it saves bits of the sandwich falling out of the sandwich (I hate when that happens, especially bits of lettuce, and then you have to squash them back in). So all in all, weighing up the pros and cons, I think this is a necessary accessory for any biker. Buy it from: www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25455873 (ah go on its only 6 dollars!)

Lovely locks by Ana Nichoola

One of the cutest accessories in a long while. For those of us that wear our locks around our waists / chests, these lock-covers come in a range of gorgeous styles and add a bit of colour to the daily commute (rumour has it, that there is a polka dot one on the way!).

I really like the green camo one:

Moti Promotion – Free ODLO underwear

Came across this promotion on the Moti site (mainly run and triathlon clothes) (http://shop.mymoti.com/searchresult.aspx?categoryid=213). They are doing a special offer for July and August “Buy any two items of ODLO underwear, get a pair of ODLO Evolution Cool Briefs FREE”. I have never been very good at wearing trendy athletic baselayers/underclothes (generally it is Pennies / Primark’s best for me), but I have heard great things about the underwear range from ODLO. According to their site, the Evolution range (which seems to be the one that Moti are doing the special on) has:

  • Lightweight, seamless bodywear in 3D rotary knitting technology
  • Seamlessly integrated zones for optimal moisture transport and more ventilation
  • Ergonomic fit and modelling look
  • Flat stitching and seam ends

Sounds good to me. They also have nice bright colors (have a look at the blue underwear with the hilariously moulded-bum-area tee hee!)

Cyclodelic: Cute cuffs

Chain Reaction Cycles are newly stocking Cyclodelic clothing and accessories. Granted these are not something to wear when racing in the mucky mountains, but I thought these cuffs were too cute not to worth a mention:

The material is reflective and the ‘smarties’ are a gorgeous addition. They are also available in three other colours (to match whatever you are wearing that day of course!) Available from Chain Reaction Cycles: www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=39613
