As easy as it is to take your ride to the shop around the corner to have it fixed, there’s something to be said for the DIY mentality when it comes to fixing something mechanical. We’re not saying you should start scouring Craigslist trying to find bikes to restore. But if you happen to have two in your backyard–or a project car in the garage–here’s a collection of clothes, tools and gear that will work as hard as you do.

    Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
