Hope I posted this in the right place.
OK, so I'm still kinda new to biking. I'm going to buy a hybrid soon, and during the process of visiting LBSs, I've seen in addition to bikes a number of accessories (mini pumps, seat bags, lights, etc). If planning on riding 5 - 7 miles maximum, average being more like a mile, what sorts of things do I need to carry with me?
And whats the best way to carry them? Any optional accessories you would suggest?
OK, question 2. Can anyone refer me to a good site with bike maintenance instructions for newbies like me? I feel the need to educate myself on maintaining and fixing a bike before plopping down 400+ dollars on one.
