Some of the lowest investment and highest return cycling and Tour de France-inspired items available from sellers on DHgate include:

- Bicycle safety lights, from US$0.83 per piece
- Handlebar tape, from US$1.13 per piece

Traditionally, major sporting events create a solid, but time-limited, increase in the number of purchases of associated equipment, apparel and merchandise.
