    My wife just bought a Ninja (900w I think). It came with a regular pitcher and two individual smoothie containers. Works good for quick shakes or smoothies. Fast, smooth, and easy to clean.

    All of my bikes have dual sided pedals, SPD/Platform. I like being clipped in, but I also do a lot of pleasure riding in athletic shoes, hikers, or sandals. It's great to have the option.
