And with regards to the bottle holder, I need to see it on the bike that's for sure. I'm crazy OCD so I want the colors to flow well. So with bike being black and red accents..I was either gonna do the red pedals, black holder, and then red bottle...or red pedals, red holder, and black bottle. Ahhh first world problems lol. I'm just not sure if I had the red pedals and red bottle holder if it'd be too much ? What do you think? Thanks for any and all help!
Black bottle in Texas not a good idea unless you enjoy drinking hot beverages on your rides.

Edit: just realized that you're in southern California. Doesn't really change the black bottle advice though.

Really appreciate it!!

- 2019 Trek FX 3. Black matte with red accents
- Bontrager Quantum MIPS helmet in black
- Bontrager Integrated Kickstand
​​​​​​- Bontrager Bottle Cage either matte black or red
- Race Face Chester Pedals in red

TOTAL out the Door - $694

I can also add the Bontrager Duotrap S+ sensor for an extra 25-30 bucks. Not sure if I need that yet, I do love tracking stats with just about everything I do, so if I understand what this does..could be cool..has anyone used one of these?

Anyways that about wraps it up. Any and all responses would be greatly appreciated. As always, thank you!!

If you're planning on bar ends, go ahead and have them install the adapters if they'll do it for free. It's a little bit of a pain because you have to move the shifters.

I also replaced the tires because I already had a pair that better suited the riding I do. I like a smoother tread than the stock tires, but they otherwise seemed ok.

Sounds like you done good. Enjoy the bike!

Enjoy your new bike! A pump of some sort will be needed, I have a Joe Blow floor pump with a gauge and usually carry a small Pocket Rocket pump on the bike along with patches, tire irons and a couple of tools.
