    A thread on "essential commuting gear" should probably go in the commuting forum.

    +1 agree on that. Had it been posed as a question, it might have been believable. But making a list of products one's company sells is a little obvious.

    Nevermind that safety is never guaranteed, but what do fenders and a tool kit have to do with safety?

    I was wondering the same thing.

    I was going to suggest the recumbent forum as the tool kit is much more important in that context than commuting, but he didn't include lugging 5 gallons of water.
