Any else worth looking at getting for it right out of the box?
Stock seat is fine. No issues with it for me whatsoever. But then I have no butt to speak of...LOL If you have a Brooks and are used to that one I am sure it will work out just fine.
Rear fender that I used was a standard mountain bike 26" fender I had from a previous bike. I believe it was from Planet Bike. VERY little modifications were needed.
Disc on the rear is a good idea. I didn't put it on initially but certainly wish that I had. I just swapped mine out recently.
Another couple of items you should consider are front and rear lights. Think that goes without saying though.
And you MIGHT want to consider a set of these for side-to-side visibility...... BIKEWRAPPERS
Anything else I can help you with?????......
