Hey all. As Pablo has mentioned, I'm brand new getting into riding this year. I've logged nearly 1000 miles so far and had a blast doing it, but I've been doing it on a bare bones bike. It's a very nice bike (Trek 5500) to be sure, but I don't have any accessories or anything like that. To that end, I'm asking for some helping in compiling a Christmas list for my wife for this year.
Right now I have two bottle cages, a good pack that goes under my saddle, gloves, a flat repair kit, a pump, and a helmet. Beyond that, I'm all stock. I even ride just with a pair of trainers on platform pedals. I've asked for shoes and clipless pedals already, but I need some help with the rest.
If you were starting all over, or could recommend a "must-have" accessory, what would it be? Thanks in advance for the input, and thanks for all the help some of you have already been.
