The list author says: "Amazon offers a great selection of top-notch cycling gear at great prices. You want to stick with items that are "sold by Amazon" or are sold by a third party but are "fulfilled by Amazon". The other stuff that's sold by and shipped by someone else usually isn't a good deal, you pay more in shipping, and they take forever to arrive."
"These tights are comfy, wind resistant, water proof/resistant, and warm. They've stood up to 3-4 rides a week over the past few months in the rain and snow and hardly show any wear. The padded seat is great. 5-10 minute rides at -10 are ok, but you can definitely feel the cold. A set of rain pants as another layer may be needed for longer rides."
"A very versatile jacket, it's lightweight but mostly windproof. The sleeves come off for riding between 40-60. When the weather turns colder, add a fleece jersey underneath to take you down towards 20. Any colder and you'll need a base layer shirt, too. With two layers underneath, 5-10 minute rides at -10 have been fine. The three pockets on the back are fantastic for keeping a phone / wallet."
"Add this jersey under the Gore Phantom II to be comfortable between 20-40 degrees. It's also a great top when riding in the cooler summer mornings. The three pockets in the back are great for storing you phone, cap, etc."
"This base layer is incredibly warm. It's almost uncomfortably warm wearing it in the house. :) Wearing this under the Thermal Jersey and Gore Phantom II, I routinely ride in temps below 20. I've been comfortable for 5-10 minute rides with wind chills down to -10."
"For weather 40 degrees and below, these gloves are perfect. They're a bit bulky and thick, but I think you have to have that. The lobster style took me a week or so to get used to, but after that it's second nature. They've served me well below zero and the velcro cuff goes nicely over your jacket sleeve to keep the wind out."
"When the weather begins to get brisk, say 50-60 degrees, I was happy to throw this little cap on my head. It's super-light and very thin. But, it's wind resistant and really does keep your head warm. It's small enough that I keep it in the rear pocket of my jersey or coat all season long so I have it to wear while walking in windy/cold weather."
"It's darn expensive and makes your head look like a mushroom out of a Super Mario game, but darn it helps keep you warm. This cover keeps the wind out and makes riding in the rain rather bearable. Instead of rain dripping down your cap and into your jacket, it falls away from your body. For cold weather it's a must. I started wearing this once I was riding below 30 degrees."
"If you ever have to wear pants while riding, these bands are a life saver. They wrap around your leg to keep your jeans out of the chain. While I have a chain guard, my pants still flap around annoyingly. These take care of that. They're dork-looking for sure. :)"
"It's pricey, but extremely bright. If you plan to ride early in the morning, you'll need something this bright. On city streets with street lights, not so much. But any non-lit roads and you have to have some lumens. In the pitch-black woods, this light even struggled a bit."
"This bag is amazing. It's got tons of room, the rear pouch has a draw string close perfect for storing your phone / wallet. The side panels open up as large paniers. Best of all, it slides onto the Topeak racks for quick removal."
"For the warmer months, a good pair of bike shorts are a must. I'm spoiled on wearing padded shorts and can't stand wearing jeans or regular shorts on my way to or from work. It's worth it to me to take a few minutes to change. These have been durable and very comfortable."
