Cold feet are not cool – and as a long time connoisseur of wool socks, I can tell you these merino wool blend socks by Fox River are some of the very best. My first two pairs are still going strong after 2 full winters of almost daily use, so I just bought another batch from their online store. They’re great for cycling, running and outdoor activities, but I like em even better for everyday use where the cold sinks to your feet. Price: US$15.00 + shipping

3T’s ZEFIRO handlebar fuses the power and control of the road racer’s drop bar with the low-drag form of the chrono rider’s aerobar. The base unit combines variable-radius, medium-drop bends with an aero wing top. Additionally, it has the unique Pi Wing™, an adjustable forward extension with an aerofoil handrest. The result is a hybrid that provides super comfort for long solo e_orts into the wind, and full control for out-of-the-saddle efforts in the bunch. It meets all current and anticipated rules on aero form in both ProTour and ITU codes and is currently being trialed by pro teams.
