I use Mountain Mirrycles on both my wife's Velorbis and my WorkCycles. They provide stable, clear images of what's behind you and are, IMHO, indispensable.

Once I saw what looked to be a brand new full-finger riding glove. I kept right on going, though, because I thought "What good is one glove? I'm not MJ."

Consider getting an Azor Front Rack for that bike, it would look great. I have one and I really like it because it's a front rack that attaches to the frame, not the handlebars.

What you're looking to do is remove the minimum speed limit. This is not for the faint-of-heart.

I am not familiar with Trek's implementation of the BionX unit so this is all predicated on Trek...
