    I only know for sure that black works. To date, I have done no research with regard to cordovan.

    No, but the ones that come on most new bikes are just there so you can test ride it. You almost always need to buy a saddle and pedals to suit your own preferences. I do at least.

    I did not see these mentioned:

    spare tubes
    tire irons
    pump or C02 cartridges (I prefer the pump because I will never run out of air).
    allen wrenches (or the multitool mentioned above)

    At home it is nice to have a floor pump. Maybe at home a patch kit. When I get a flat, I take my punctured tube home and patch it.

    You should get something to clean and relube your drivetrain. I use degreaser and everyone has their favorite chain lube.

    All good suggestions! Thanks folks. Surprized no one mentioned mirror. I find my Blackburn brake mounted mirror an invaluable asset.

    I was wondering the same thing.....

    On our ride last Sat. morning we passed a guy with a cupholder mounted on the bars... it had a full coffee cup in it. We both wondered how the coffee stays in the cup, even with the lid on.

    Wow. Don't mention that on the Roadie thread. They'll discuss confiscating your bike, and they'd be serious.
