Bike Jax Local Gift Guide

We are very lucky here in Jax that we have an abundance of those wacky creative types known as artists and crafters. Why not pick up something unique and original for that favorite cyclist in you life for this holiday season and at the same time help support local art and business.

Arturo Clothing Co:
Arturo Clothing has exploded on the scene this year with their lovable and happy to meet everyone icon, Bean the dog-wonder.
They have a wide selection of shirts and bags that can be found at Anomaly in Five Points, Kona Skatepark's Pro Shop, and at Downtown Art Walk every first Wednesday of the Month.
Shirts are $15 and Bags will only set you back $10.

Anna Berken is the local graphic designer who graciously did all the design work for The Night Ride event. Her "You Sproke To My Heart" Shirts and posters were a huge hit during the event itself. If you didn't get chance to pick one up at the event drop her line and grab one while you can. Contact Anna by e-mail to order: [email protected]

Zombie Bike Co-Op is your one stop Co-Op for bike parts and complete builds. Don't have the funds for a new bike. Why not recycle an older bike and at the the sametime get satisfaction that you put it together yourself with the direction of the zombie guys and gals.

Don't need a new bike or more parts? Already got the tee's and bags? How about some bike art from local artists for you walls. You know it is way past time for you to grow up and replace that cheesy ass PBR poster. Check out some bike art and if anything catches you fancy email me at bikejax at and I'll put you in contact with the artist.

Not in the market for locally made bike stuff? Fine. Not a problem. Just make sure you purchase your bike related stuff at Local Bike Shops. While not supporting local art, you are still at least support local business and putting food on local tables. A complete list of local bike shops is located on the right hand of this page. And don't forget to tell them that Bike Jax sent ya.
