Still thinking about gift ideas for the cyclists in your life?

We have many must-haves for both the seasoned and recreational rider.  Stuff their stockings with the essentials – cycling socks, energy food, arm warmers, or gloves.

Get them ready for the spring riding season with an indoor trainer from CycleOps or Wahoo fitness.  Pick up a training DVD or mountain bike video for the cold, snowy days on the trainer!

We also have plenty of bicycle-inspired gift items.  What cyclist doesn’t want a Park Tools Pizza Cutter or bottle opener?!  Also check out our clocks and ornaments from Urban Veggie, handmade out of recycled bicycle gears.

Of course, don’t forget we have BIKES!! Give the gift that keeps on riding – a mountain bike, road bike, hybrid bike, BMX bike or kids bike from Specialized, Cannondale or Felt.

Still can’t decide on a gift?  We have gift cards available in any denomination at the register.  Criterium gift cards never expire and can be used to purchase any product or service.

Give the gift of bicycles!

No matter what your age, there’s nothing like receiving a bicycle as a holiday gift.  We have bikes for all budgets and riding styles here at Criterium.

For the smallest of shredders, we have a complete line of children’s bikes which come with the same level of quality as our adult-sized bikes.  Don’t short-change the little riders by opting for a department-store bicycle.  Instead choose one of our Specialized, Felt, or Cannondale kids bikes.  For the smallest of tykes, get them started with a Specialized Hotwalk – a balance bike designed for youngsters not quite ready for pedals.  When the kids are ready to turn the cranks, get them going with a Specialized HotRock or Cannondale Kids Trail.  These bikes are available in wheel sizes from 12″ to 20″.  The 20″ wheel options also include a 6-speed geared variety in addition to a coaster brake model.  For older children,  the Specialized HotRock 24″ and Cannondale Trail race 24″, with 21 speeds and a suspension fork will have them tearing up the singletrack with Mom and Dad. For kids who would rather shred the skatepark, we also carry Felt BMX street/ park bikes with a 20″ wheel in two different frame sizes.

Keep your youngsters protected by pairing a new bike with proper safety gear.  We have a full line of Specialized kids’ helmets in toddler, child, and youth sizes.  We also carry a wide selection of child-sized gloves, jerseys, shorts, and jackets from Pearl Izumi.

Don’t forget that it’s not just kids who love getting a bike as a holiday gift!  Our shop is stocked full of mountain, road, cyclocross and hybrid bikes for adult riders of all skill levels and sizes.  Stop in to check out the new 2014 models from Specialized, Cannondale, and Felt and to shop our SALE bikes from previous years.

Are you looking to make some room in your garage for a new bike? We accept donations of used bicycles and parts year-round.  Used items are given to our partner groups which help disadvantaged residents of our community. Help a neighbor by donating your used bicycles or gear this holiday season.
