Welcome to the third edition of the weekly Bike magazine Holiday Gift Guide. This week, our Assistant Editor, Ryan LaBar, picked seven products he feels are worth the price and will last the test of time.

Swobo Spencer Socks: $17

There are bad kinds of socks and good kinds of socks to receive as a gift–these are the good kind.

ODI TLD Lock-On Grips: $25
My favorite grips.

Gore Ride On cables
: $65
These provide the smoothest shifting and won’t gunk up.

Thomson x4 Stem: $100
Light, stiff, strong, beautiful.

Shimano M240 Shoe: About $300
Comfy all day long and durable.

Avid X0 Brakes : About $500
Good stoppers with loads of adjustments.

Santa Cruz Nickel Frame: $1350
Not the lightest weight or the stiffest, but an awesome all-around trail frame for the money.
