- Bike wheel lights
- Blinky red rear lights
- tools and a tool bag
- hand pump and patches ( ok, I guess I should actually "need" those things..)
- better prescription sunglasses ( wrap around style)
- protective gloves - because it'll look that much cooler when I signal a turn
- reflective gear/clothes
- fenders ( hey, I don't mind getting dirty but my wife does the laundry and ...well,...)
So when I'm looking around the internet for this stuff, I run across alot of it on Amazon.com, which I've used in the past with great success AS LONG AS I ALREADY KNEW the product and it's qualities. This bike accessory stuff though? I'm just going to have to trust the reviews there I guess. And I'm going to see if I can find the same products here in my local stores. Maybe they'll match Amazon's prices to get my business?
Anyway, it looks like we'll be breaking out the credit card a few more times in the next couple of weeks to buy some of this stuff. It's getting to be fall now, so the lights can probably wait, but the reflective clothing and gloves, the pump and patches I probably should go ahead and buy.
And, if her rides go well later this week, another big purchase with the acquisition of our 2nd Trek Navigator.
