So I've been doing a fair bit of travelling for work recently, and built up a pile of American Express "rewards" points paying for hotels, flights, inappropriately large meal and drink bills etc. Looking though the list, I could get a 2MP digital camera... nope... or an Oroton handbag.... I don't think so... oooh...light aircraft training flight.. damn not available in Victoria. oooh... I can get a Trek 4100 http://www66.americanexpress.com/mr...searchType=rewardDetail&id=3768-1988&seqnum=1 Done deal. I just sent off for the certificate I need to trade for the bike at my LBS. So my question to you guys is, assuming I'm starting with nothing , what would you recommend I pick up at the same time? I'll be using it mostly weekends on bike paths.. maybe a bit of commuting.... so I'm thinking a half decent helmet of course, a computer, but what else? I was reading somewhere that the plastic pedals that come with entry level Trek bikes like the 4100 should be the first to go, but I'm looking for your experienced and sage like advice to help me make up a shopping list. -- Regards, Flaps.
