So, I've got the new bike (Trek DualSport), and I've been riding but it's time to think about what I need to have with me on the bike as I venture out further from home. Here are some of my thoughts, but tell me what I'm missing for a good basic set of gear/accessories to make my rides safer and more enjoyable, and give me specific product reccomendations if you have them.
I figure I want/need
1) a helmet
2) some sort of bag for gear on the bike (but I don't know how bug or what all goes in it or where I should mount it)
3) spare tube (or two?) but any tube reccomendations?
4) pump or CO2 inflator, or both? Any reccomendations on models?
5) tools or multi tool. Not sure what to look for here.
6) bottle cage(s)
8) computer (or GPS)?
9) cell phone obviously
I don't feel the need to load the bike up with the whole kitchen sink, (it's got enough to do carrying my fat you know what around) but if there's something you love and wouldn't want to go without, post it here. If this thread ends up good maybe we can sticky it as a good reference because it's nearly impossible to come up with the proper search terms for this subject, unless you know what you need already and search for the individual item reviews/reccomendations.
