    What do you mean exactly?

    Clothing? I'd get some shorts. Either spandex with a chamois, or baggies with a padded liner.

    Jerseys: New materials keep you cool and look good too. Hey buy one of the BikeForum Jerseys we've got going.

    You could also get some cycling socks. They don't trap moisture and heat, and keep you feet dry and cool. Plus there are some cool designs out there and most manufacturer's have socks with their logos on em.

    Sunglasses: Get decent ones with interchangable lenses. I like riding with yellow lenses on wooded singletrack, it helps brighten the trail.

    Shin/Knee pads if you're planning on riding stunts or drops.

    Tools, I love buying bike specific tools. Get ones by Park or Pedro's, most others are junk!

    What else? A camelback is a good thing. Has a bladder for your drink up to like 100 oz of liquid and a place to store your tools, a mini-pump and spare tools and even a windbreaker.

    That's all I can think of at the moment!
