One of the problems with using my rando bike for short rides is that I don't like to change into bike shoes. Of course I could get out a wrench and change pedals. The best solution, however, is MKS's quick change, or "EZ" pedals.
The EZ system works like the release on a high pressure air line. You push a little ring and the pedal releases, then you can snap in another. It's all very quick and almost effortless. Since I have MKS MM-cubes on three of my bikes, they are my favorite clipless pedal, it's easy to switch to the EZ version. My other pedal is the very well made MKS Promenade EZ, which is double sided and can be used with toe clips. I use mine with half clips.
We'll have the pedals in the store soon. They are not cheap, but I think their convenience makes them well worth the price.
The second photo is of the ViVa bag loops on a saddle. A few folks wanted to see what they looked like when mounted.
Derek Z. told me about the cool new Surly rear cable hanger on the right. We'll have them in the store in a few days.
