Skinny Bike's Upgrades, Tool Kits & Safety Light

Dumb me, I failed the Conversion Project....
I can't blame myself on that, but still, I need a more reliable set up... 
and buying a new bike is not an option....

And this is another case of UPGRADE-ITIS
this is a kind of virus which is common with Mountain Bikers
it's the most common Wallet Killers....
it will almost empty your wallet as soon as this virus struck you...
it struck me many times before back home,
and now it struck me once again.

This Time.... the virus is more of beneficial....

I've got some More Reliable Parts for my Skinny Bike
and some parts to upgrade my experience to the next level.
