Nice bike. I have a sport triple. I'm looking for an LED tail light and I plan to use a Fenix L1D on nimh's for a head light.

Planet Bike is a great company with a real commitment to supporting bicycle advocacy. Also, their superflash LED tail light is like an ambulance - drives the drivers crazy:

I took the reflectors off my TriX as soon as I got home. Others will point out this maybe an issue of law. Your choice. I used black 3M reflective tape on the frame (also black) as well as white. I'm very happy with my PB Alias 15w headlight and Cateye LD-1000 tail light.

One other thing, trunk bags are fine but do not use a rear rack that mounts to the carbon seatpost. That's a no-no. I have an Old Man Mountain Sherpa rear rack and Arkel's Tail Rider (sexier than a trunk bag) and T-28 pannier.
Post up on the Commuting section, you'll get lots of advice! ;)
