Your bicycle complies with CPSC Standards and comes with front &/or rear brakes, reflectors (tyres and built in) and a bell. Please do not remove any of these components from your bicycle.
An approved helmet should be worn at all times. Your state and local helmet laws can be found here.
For night riding, it is important to have a light that shines white light from the front of your bike and red light from the rear. This is a legal requirement in many states. Lights can be purchased here and will be shipped free with your bicycle.
