Mudguards, SKS ChromoplasticsThank you for all the replies so far, that is very nice and helpful. Gloves, helmet, shorts, jacket and shoes are priority then.
To answer some questions:
1) Male, reasonably fit
2) Going from Northolt (W. London) to City of London (mainly through grand union canal)
3) I dont expect to commute this distance 5x a week for most of the year. I will very much continue to commute in on my motorcycle. Realistically, i am looking at commuting in 2 to 3 x a week. This may also be a seasonal ambition as I dont know what cycling will be like in the winter, I know very well how it is on a motorcycle though!
Having said that, in terms of bike accessories I suppose I will need a rack (for luggage), mudguards and spare tyre replacement kit. Would you be so kind to recommend some specific brands which are known for quality and durability please?
I'd suggest you read up on cycling helmets before deeming one a priority.Thank you for all the replies so far, that is very nice and helpful. Gloves, helmet, shorts, jacket and shoes are priority then.
