Gary Fisher Zebrano slight tune up

Hello folks, I decided to post images of my slightly modified 2007 Gary Fisher Zebrano, I know that there are critics in here, so please, don't be hard on me.
These pictures don't show 100% of my modification.
Bike: 600$
Alloy Raleigh extensions: 30$
Aluminum triathlon extension bar: 30$
Aluminum bottle cage: 10$
Raleigh compact pump: 20$
Bell LED head light: 30$
Bell LED tail light: 30$
Louis Garneau bottle: 20$
Lambert cargo carrier (not shown on the pictures): 30$
Louis Garneau bike bag: 30$ (not shown on pictures): 30$
Cat Eye bike computer: 20$
Christophe (French) aluminum pedal clips: 30$

Total cost: +- 880$

I might soon upgrade the front wheel to disk brake. But am not yet sure about this. Since it would cost +- 300$ with installation and a new wheel.

I know its not much , but still better than stock bike.







And my personal favourite: "si tu touche mon velo je te coupe les couilles" which means " you touch my bike, I cut your balls".



Have a nice week everyone

What do you use the bike for and what benefit do you expect from the disc brake except a $300 reduction in your recources?
