CO2 cartridges and inflator (the more simple they are, the better they work), a small multi-tool with various hex heads on it, and if you're getting a giant seat bag anyway, carrying a patch kit in addition to a spare tube is a good idea. You can re-flat after a tube change, so it's good to have a backup for your backup.

just found out that the bike don't come with peddles :(. talked to a friend said stick with shimano peddle due to they being for standard. question is go regular peddles or clipless. I think I aint going to need clipless right away. this is to fit on that xtc giant. finally bought it ayeyo :)

Just grab the cheapest set of regular pedals you can find to get you rolling. When you feel like you need clipless, get clipless then.

And don't forget a good lock! You're using this for some commuting, right? Get a good U lock if you're in an urban area or you can probably get away with a chain lock (get one with a key) if you're in a low-crime area.
