    Nice bike. I have a sport triple. I'm looking for an LED tail light and I plan to use a Fenix L1D on nimh's for a head light.

    Planet Bike is a great company with a real commitment to supporting bicycle advocacy. Also, their superflash LED tail light is like an ambulance - drives the drivers crazy:

    I took the reflectors off my TriX as soon as I got home. Others will point out this maybe an issue of law. Your choice. I used black 3M reflective tape on the frame (also black) as well as white. I'm very happy with my PB Alias 15w headlight and Cateye LD-1000 tail light.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    One other thing, trunk bags are fine but do not use a rear rack that mounts to the carbon seatpost. That's a no-no. I have an Old Man Mountain Sherpa rear rack and Arkel's Tail Rider (sexier than a trunk bag) and T-28 pannier.

    Post up on the Commuting section, you'll get lots of advice!
