    urban upgrade

    i was thinking what i need to upgrade for riding distance.
    bigger wheel? would they fit?
    skinnier tires?
    lighter parts? wheres a good place to save weight?
    also wheres a good place to buy cheap accessories, like a 5 dollar mirror or a 5 dollar blinker, or a 20 dollar foot pump?

    Nashbar, Performance, BikesDirect, are all good for deals on bike stuff. Just click on some of the ads that interest you.

    Slick tyres will be a good upgrade for riding long distances on roads...and will save you some weight as well.
