Two-wheeled whizzkids generally love nothing more in life than their road-rolling runaround.
That makes buying them a Christmas gift a tricky business: trying to find them a replacement for their much-loved pedaller is like a pot-holed path to purgatory.
Instead, accessorise. Let them keep their wheels as you supply them with every possible light, lock, jacket and, of course, coffee table cycling companion.
Best of all, fitting up your fitness-insistent friend with brilliant bolt-ons means they'll spend most of the day in the garage - so no more protracted discussions about the benefits of carbon cross-beams and the mighty shaved leg.
