Tomorrow I will order my new Surly Cross Check to use for commuting and play. Following is the list of other basic items I will buy…am I leaving anything out?
Rack (I have panniers)
Front Light (I have a good rear light)
Water bottle cage(s)
Pedals (I’m getting the SPD on one side and flat on the other)
Locks (U and Cable)
I have tire levers/patch kit, pump, etc. for my road bike to use with the commuter bike until I have cash to get another set.
