Question ? for my fellow bicyclists

Ok so the DMV said I should stop riding and so does my wrist, so for now Im on a bicycle for transportation. Im lookin into a pretty nice schwinn rite now but i was wondering what you all recommend for accessories or tools to carry with me?
also what do you think about tire slime as a preventitive measure?
headlights? brands and battery life? .... any suggestions would help this is going to be my transportation through to the winter this year so any help is appreciated.
Thanks

If you haven't gone down yet, you ain't ridin hard enough!!!

You're seriously thinking about giving up riding? How bad is your wrist?

the DMV took your license??????? that blows! that going to eff you up as a smoke eater?

i ride fat tire, not road...but I always run Slime filled inner tubes (buy them prefilled...saves the mess)...you need a good, bright LED headlight (bar mounted, not head mounted, duh) and a good bright blinky LED tail...don't think you have to spend a fortune...you don't...i always ride with an Alien tool kit, a few chain links, tire levers, a spare inner tube, a collapsible pump (don't buy the CO2 ones...they're worthless IMHO). That's pretty much it. I used a mtn bike as my primary means of transpo when i lived in Germany...was great...it's good for ya

and lets not forget...a good helmet

yeah I just lost it at the end of last year, I had just made lieutenant before I had this injury and lost my license! Pretty sweet timing huh! I guess the good Lord has other plans for me.

Im glad you mentioned the C02 systems cuz they look way too cool not to work LOL
but what brand handlebar light have you been most impressed by?
And do you really think I need to carry a few extra chain links? Does the Alien tool kit have chain tools? (to install links)

If you haven't gone down yet, you ain't ridin hard enough!!!

Just goes to prove my theory of most sport bike riders and how "slow" they are lol. I picked up on what you were trying to say immediately. It's funny that even after you said the DMV took your license t hey still don't get it.

Are you going to put a Mini Edge on your bike now?
