I have been riding my Downtube Nova as a commuter for a year now (20kms approx).

I want to make it more comfortable and improve the braking. I have ordered the following parts:

Swalbe Marathon Tires
Avid Single Digit 5 V-Brakes and Levers
Wellgo GnT aluminum pedals
WTB Speed V progel saddle

Any tips or advice?

Thank you for viewing,
