    $140 dollar gift card!

    I have a $140 dollar gift card to Performance Bicycle. What should I buy, I have all the basics here are a few things I think I need.

    1. Gloves- Have none and have no clue where to start
    2. Bike computer- I currently use strava (smartphone)and a 15 dollar walmart system, so this is near the bottom of the list.
    3. Saddle Bag
    4. Winter gear (sure is coming up)
    5. More 'shorts'
    6. ?????

    Those aren't really in any type of order, What would you do with $140 needing those types of things, anything else you would recommend?

    Gloves for sure. Should be about $20. Find something comfortable, most will do similar jobs.

    Saddle bag too, about $15.

    You likely don't have cadene on your computer, which I use more than speed or distance displays when I ride. That would be about $50.

    Aside from that, pick up a thermal jersey. I have a perf brand one and love it. $50.

    There's your $140.

    Not sure if you've got a floor pump, but I picked up one of these on deep discount this morning at Performance.

    Gloves short & full fingered, saddle bag if you don't carry your levers & patches etc...in your jersey. Arm & leg warmers if you do not wear bibs, cooler weather is on the way.
