I stopped by http://www.counterbalancebicycles.com after work yesterday and picked up the following:
- blackburn competition cage
- sunlite toe straps
- all city nylon double toe clip medium black (just pull the front reflector off the stock pedals and they fit fine)
- planet bike eco rack - aluminum
Rode 8 miles into work today, I was paranoid about getting a flat so I left the tires super under-inflated. Combined with a strong headwind out of the south, I got a nice workout and a slow ride in. Very nice riding bike though, frame really absorbed the bumpy pavement on the burke gilman trail and going over a couple curbs. Handling is quick but stable, oddly somewhat reminiscent of my old short wheelbase recumbent. I still need to look at the crank and get the rim strips, adjust the rear derailleur (if I can figure out how). I am fine with the stock brake levers and brake pads. Really an extremely good value bike overall.
