    I've used several mini pumps on the side of the road,and now only carry the Topeak Morphs. The t-handle design makes pumping easier,and the chuck on the end of a hose means you don't have to hole the...

    Reelights suck;I've seen them on a couple bikes around here. Fine for a set of backup lights,but not near bright enough as your only lights. They disappear amongst urban traffic.

    You didn't say where you were located. Check and see if there are any co-ops/bike kitchens near you. For a newb on a budget,they can be the best place to find a good used bike.
