ok, my bike accessory shopping is now complete. i got the bungee cords for the luggage rack and front and rear lights this week and i just now ordered a U lock to go along with the cable lock i got at the bike shop. i'm getting used to the seat so i don't think i will be replacing it. so far i have rode around 15 miles total and am really enjoying it. thanks again meme for talking me out of a walmart bike!
