sun usx riders

I am officially bent. I just got my sun usx. I love the bike, I was wondering what others users have done as far as accessories for this bike. I'd love to see some photos or ideas for lights, horn, bags etc. I have an appointment to change the freewheel to a megarange, and I have already installed a rear view mirror. thanks

Need a little help, ok. Put some better tires on, I had hookworms from Maxxis. Don't forget to put some Mr. Tuffs in with the tires, I found out the hard way, after 5 or 6 flats. Then I put an old back of my older trike on put it on the back with some flags and lots of ligths, hmm that didn't come out right...well you can see by the pics. Also you can put some lights on the handle bars of some side lighing. Only pics of it before it died, broke the frame two times. ..Sad..

Looked at a USX at Budget Bikes in Madison.

Know anything about them. I talked to Chriss at their specialty shop.

The lights in front is just a stem from a normal bike and a handy bar cut down to size with end plugs, then I added the old bar off my mounten bike to look like 'bull horns.' I know a lot about the USX, put over 4000 miles before it died on me, if you need more PM me.
