Bike & Scooter Accessories - Get a Grip at Monster Scooter Parts

The world of bicycle technology has certainly changed over the years. Just about every part that goes into making a bike; everything from the seat (or "saddle" as it's now called) down to the pedals has been redesigned with lighter alloys, plastics, carbon fiber, and other weight-saving materials. Change is usually a Very Good Thing, but it seems that the essentials remain. The cranks and pedals and handlebars may have gotten themselves reconfigured into a more 21st century type of stuff, but they all still do the same job as before, and they do it in the very same old way. The fenders still keep the cold water and mud from splashing up your back and the handlebar grips still give you something to hang on to.

The Inflator
Here for example is an item that totally represents a new way of fixing an old problem. The Portland Design Works Ninja C02 bicycle pump (or "inflator" as they're now called) can be used as a traditional hand pump, or the rider can make use of the ultra fast CO2 cartridge and pop the air back into that pneumatic doughnut faster than it takes to write about it.

Taking a retro full step backwards, every kid once had an Inner Tube Patch & Repair Kit but such handy & useful items as these aren't as ubiquitous as they once were. Years later I can remember using the little metal rasp to roughen up the surface of the tube to take the patch, and the sharp aroma of rubber adhesive.  

The Cup Holder
Maintaining proper hydration is essential to every cyclist, and a good bike water bottle and water bottle holder are must-have items for the MTB rider or in-town street cyclist. Monster Scooter Parts offers an incredibly diverse range of bottles and carrier cages to suit just about anyone's tastes. We also offer a selection of the hydropacks that seem to be the current fashion in bike accessories.

Speaking of fashions that come and go, the humble beach cruiser is a category of bikes that I hope never goes out of style. Fat tires and single speed coaster brakes were part of my life growing up in a beach town and whenever I see a cruiser style bike it immediately takes me back to my greener days growing up on the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Here's a cute and clever little item that will help turn just about anything with a handlebar into a bone fide beach cruiser; the Cruiser Candy Coconut Cup Holder, a unique drink holder made from real coconut husks. We sell a number of distinctive Cruiser Candy holders in a variety of models, so if you want to really dress up your handlebar in genuine beach town style just mount one on your bar and be the envy of the boardwalk.

The Trailer
As cycling becomes a family affair like no time before, bike trailers and trailer bikes become a great way to introduce the youngest cyclists to longer trips away from home. Child carriers & baby seats are certainly popular as well to keep the smallest kiddoes close at hand.

How is this for the ultimate bike accessory? You might not have needed one in the past, but sooner or later every cyclist wishes that they had a magnificent Cargo Trailer for their bike. Think of this as a bicycle-to-pickup-truck conversion kit. Once you attach the trailer your bike becomes a real pedal-powered hauling machine.

The Grip
Handlebar grips are one of the most economical upgrades that a rider can make to their bike or scooter. A good set of grips do two primary and necessary jobs as part of your steering system; they give your hands a good holding place to grab onto that isn't affected by sweat and moisture, and they provide your palms and fingers with a cushioned barrier against stress and vibration. Oh, and they improve your bike's good looks as well. OK, that makes three essential things that a set of handlebar grips do for you. Monster Scooter Parts carries a huge selection of grips for just about any cycling style. We have MTB grips and kids' grips. We offer flangeless foam grips and colorful flanged grips. And we have some of the most elegant leather grips that can ever go onto a bar.

Behold the utterly superlative Portland Design Works Whiskey Leather Handlebar Grips, the acme of grip design and luxury. The durable Whiskey Grips are crafted from the best full grain Italian leather. They are then vegetable tanned and conditioned with natural oils and waxes. Even the inside part is thoughtfully designed with sturdy machined aluminum alloy lockrings to prevent the grips from shifting while you ride. All in all, Portland's amazing Whiskey Leather Handlebar Grips are a real treat for yourself, or perhaps as a birthday or Father's Day gift for the favorite cyclist in your life.

A Very Good Thing
A bike or scooter is really an extension of the self. More than just a 2-wheeled leg-powered auxiliary vehicle, your personal machine says a lot about you and is a way that defines you as a whole person. Technology changes and everyone but the most lackadaisical or lollygagging cyclist or scooterist embraces the change for the Very Good Thing that it is. Embrace it and celebrate it.
