As I wait for delivery of my bikes I was wondering what accessories I might need. Besides a good helmet is there any accessory and/or gadget that you love to have with you.
Quite nice and I think you can buy single if you want. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074T612KL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
My wife and I have used helmet mounted mirrors for decades. It's the one accessory I wouldn't leave home without. Being helmet mounted, we can also take them on our bike trips. We're using Cycleaware mirrors, but there are lots available.
Wow, I never considered this as one of the first accessories to swap out. Sounds like better pedals than stock ones translates into smoother motion and better contact with shoe to pedal. I am seeing the Raceface or Crank-Bros are the best option over their generic counterparts? I am still using the Haibike stock pedals on my eMTB for the past year.Toss up. NCX12 Seatpost or Raceface Chester pedals (or any nice spiked pedals probably).
Changing the pedals on my first bike made so much of a difference I still can't believe it today. Never even installed the stock pedals on my second bike, had a pair of the Raceface waiting when the bike arrived.
....of course I'm big on racks and bags as well I have more bags and backpacks than anyone needs in a few lifetimes.
