I personally like taller handlebars
a luggage rack
speedo/odometer is fun
Cheapo toolset to carry with you
chainbreaker (take two links from the chain if possible)

I wish I had a mirror! lol and will get one soon!

You'll have loads of fun!
Dinky little things that are easy to work on... and that's a good thing, because they require frequent attention.

Read as many of the threads as you can here before the kit arrives!!!!
There is SO much valuable info here!

Thanks rc, do you have a link to a hub adapter?

I have all the tools to work on bikes since I have built a few MTBs.

I'm heading to Walmart just to look around anyway. What the heck...
