    You've got most of the basics covered: magicshine, coffee mug, B17, rear rack and load bearing decals. Enjoy the ride!

    Happy commuting to you !
    If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.

    Having a blast! Although I'm already looking for alternate routes so that I can ride a little longer. Not so fond of the train ride home, but at least I have that option available to me. I did not realize just how much I've missed commuting by bike or even bike riding in general. Now I can't wait for a little bad weather to roll in...Thanks to all for your interest and support.
