    Pimp my MTB

    An order from PerformanceBike and some stuff I bought in the Marketplace forum showed up in today's mail. I got a portable pump that straps on my bike, and new head/tail lights that won't fall off like the old cheapo ones, and a little bag that sits in on the bar behind the handlebars. Between those and the U-lock and the bottle cage, I have truly pimped my bike.

    The new taillight will also clip onto my guitar gig bag. I also picked up bright orange-yellow glowing sticker things, and there's a computer I need to figure out how to install.

    By the end of the season, perhaps I can turn it into an art bike. And at that point it'll be utterly unrideable, but purty.

    I'm tired. Must sleep.

    Don't forget the pink tassels for the handlebars and a baseball card clipped to your spokes.

    The only problem with all thi stuff is it's more junk to unclip when I put the bike on the trunk rack every morning. Yeah, I know, deal with it.

    Computer, headlight, rainbow-haired troll doll, mini-pump, tool kit, 2 bottle cages, fenders with extra-long mudflaps, 3 red blinkie lights, seat bag, rear rack, rack trunk, and a bunch of ScotchLite reflecty stickers.

    All I'm missing are spinners and ground effect lighting.
