I have to say I never consider which pads I'll be using with rotors when I buy either. I buy organic for best stopping power and metallic for longest life (kevlar somewhere in the middle).

That isn't a cross bike. First, make sure the bike fits you. If it doesn't, its not really worth restoring (give it to someone who could use it).

The most important factors being reliability, light output, and battery life. You should first choose a light that meets those criteria before worrying about color. Most of the high end stuff I see is ...

Looking around, it sounds like Shimano and other companies who do hoods may have discontinued them - it may be useful to shoot Shimano an email to see if this is true. I'd check your bike shop/co-op's parts bin - theres a good chance one of those shifters from a wreck is in there, which you can salvage the hoods from. Alternatively, if you go to a bike ...
