Getting my bike on Saturday!
Finally, after lurking here and occasionally posting since June, and putting a bike on layaway in mid September, I'm going to be picking up my '07 Specialized Hardrock (satin fire distressed - red) on Saturday. I got active in my employee wellness program in Sept 06, have lost about 35 pounds, and managed to earn a $250 gift card from Scheels. I put the bike on layaway during a model year close out sale, so the cost of the bike is $300. However, since it's been on layaway for almost two months, I've payed for almost half of it already. So on Saturday I'll have about $100 left over to spend on other bike related stuff. I figure a helmet and water bottle/cage will run me another $50, so I'm left with $50 and not sure what to spend it on. My birthday is also this weekend, and I've been asking for cold-weather riding gear so I don't think I'll need any of that stuff. I'll probably get a headlight and blinky rear light for riding in town. Maybe I should get some gloves.
If you had $50 to spend on some basic bike related stuff what would you get?
