I'm polling the cycling intelligentsia on the 50+ forum and see what basic accessories I need for my new bike. It's not here yet, but I want to be ready.
I am pretty sure I am going to recycle (haha, little pun) my crank bros pedals from my hybrid and put them on the new bike. It makes sense in two ways, one I don't have to learn to use a new pedal system and risk falling like I did innumerable times while learning to use the crank bros, two, I can keep my same shoes. Later when I recover from the bike expense, I can get better pedals and shoes.
I will need a computer, just a basic model is fine. I'd like some kind of bag or pack, nothing too obtrusive. Can you put a seat post rack on a carbon seat post? I will need some sort of mirror.
Anything else? Whattya think?
