Ultimate Bike Handlebar Fit Guide

We always get the question, “Which bike accessory will fit on my handlebars?” and buying a bike accessory online can be somewhat difficult.  So we pulled together the ultimate guide to help you find your prefect bike accessory based on your bike’s handlebar type. We covered everything from hand-woven bike basket that fit hi rise handlebars to front mounting bike baskets that mountain bike handlebars.

Eleanor’s Turns 2 this week!

This week, Eleanor’s is turning TWO. Our stylish bike-accessory shop for ladies was founded in April 2012 on a little idea you don’t have to wear spandex to ride your bike.

As we continue to scout out the cutest accoutrements and bike wear (no spandex shorts EVER!) and expand our offerings, we want to thank our loyal customers. We’re offering 15% off all online orders (ending April 8)—just use promo code “anniversary2.”

Here is a look back on new things that happened for Eleanor’s in 2013.

We look forward to seeing you at Brooklyn Flea in 2014, and thank you for your support!

New York Bike Style Book

New York Bike Style by Sam Polcer comes out at the end of the month. New York Bike Style celebrates this with full-page photographs of riders and their bikes. Photographer Sam Polcer has combed New York’s five boroughs looking for subjects who reflect the myriad styles and demographics of the city’s cyclists—from Puerto Rican Schwinn aficionados with vintage bikes to fixedgear freaks; from BMX kids honing their bar-spins at skateparks to fashionistas floating down leaf-strewn streets in dresses. Fingers crossed that my picture taken back in June 2013 made the cut. Reserve your copy here.

And that’s why this year, we took matters into our own hands and hunted down the finest, most fun, romantic-but-not-sappy presents that money (but not too much money) can buy. Take a spin through our gift guide, and send a virtual nudge to your Valentine that he or she will probably thank you for later. A V-Day gift you actually want and can maybe even (gasp!) use? What’s not to love?  bikebasketroses Image Courtesy of Pinterest (more…)
