    Seriously, though. I have BMX pedals, leather saddle and a basket. A BASKET! I'm not really worried about speed. I worry more about lights, fenders and reflective tape than wind resistance. I...

    My light is mounted under my front basket. There's no way to cover it but it has a euro beam anyhow (sharp cutoff like low beams). How would you count me? Would I be one of the 29?
