Took another short spin on my new bike and it was wonderful. Only about 5 miles but this was my first ride with big boy cycling shorts and I don't care how many smirks, laughs or finger pointing comes my way, I will never ride without NICE cycling shorts again. Not once did I even think about rearranging the posterior. The hands are different. I think just spending more time on the bike with help. the gloves seem comfortable.
So with a birthday and Christmas coming up soon, I need to stark building my wish list and and looking for some advice from the pie guys. Here's what I've put on the list:
- wireless cycling computer
- multi-tool (not sure how big, I mostly ride paved bike trails)
- floor pump
- co2 inflator
- arm warmers
- lightweight packable jacket
- headlight and taillight
Any advice on specific types/brands for items above?
What other thing should I add?
Anya and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

My skill level - week. If I were to ride with a group now, I'd be the guy sucking hind teet.
Luckily I live in NorCal which has pretty good year-round cycling weather, although I'm not hard core enough to go out in rain or nasty wind.
