Jason’s picks:
If you’re feeling extra generous a new frameset would make an excellent gift (he’s partial to the Element C90 from Rocky Mountain). Or if you’re shopping on a less extravagant budget, Skratch Labs Cookie Mix is a solid choice for fueling Strava KOM’s.

Build your dream bike starting with this carbon frame. The Element C90 has full-sealed cartridge bearings, press fit BB, internal cable routing, and more.
