What about saddle bags? Are those in the same category with dork disks and reflectors?
Little undersaddle ones, or panniers..
Both the mountain bike and the wifes bike have pannier racks, but kind of essential.. you ever done a 70km touring ride with the wife, you really have no idea how many changes of clothes, flasks and food they feel the need to take with them, just in case anything happens..
Strangely when i suggested getting a rack for the Kona so if we where going away for a few days i could just fit it on, and she insisted she would carry everything, and that im not allowed a rack on my new bike bless her..
which reminds me, i really must find her a basket for the front, poor lamb so desperately wants one. Weight is no object it seems, checked her tyre pressures the other day, poor girl has been riding at 25-30 psi. Got to give her credit though, anyone who can consistently ride 30-40k over rolling devon hills on a 20kg bike, costing £80 with flat tyres is a toughie.
