Is this your bike?

In addition to the things mentioned here - stuff to patch a flat (I wouldn't ride without that stuff, at least not outside long walking distance back), and a rack, speedometer, lights, etc -

I would suggest (take it or leave it) replacing the tires with flat resistant tires. I just imagine the ones that come on a $500 bike aren't the best - though, who knows! If you get several flats a year, flat resistant tires like the Panaracer TServer Messenger tires or the Continental Gatorskins can *nearly* eliminates getting flats altogether.

Of course, to be fair, it was was me I would probably ride the tires it came with until it became a problem. :-)
