Appropriate grease for bike jockey wheel overhaul

Retro bike racks wanted but not found.

I recently purchased a new bicycle. A GT Kustom Kruiser Moto Glide to be specific. This is my first bike since college and also the first that's I've actually ridden regularly. It has become apparent that I should get some some type of rack/basket. The problem I am encountering is all the ones I can find are very square and boring (for example). What I would like is something that would be more in line with the bike's aesthetics. Prefer to purchase, but not against a DIY solution if you have any ideas.

Best route for overland commute in NYC

I live at the top of Central Park in New York City (my park entrance is at 110th and Lenox), and I'm thinking of either getting a bike or rollerblades to commute to my job at 23rd and Fifth (or, perhaps more accurately, to my gym at 23rd and Park, where I can shower and change). What's the most direct path through the park from top to bottom, and which streets should I take to my destination once I exit the park? [more inside]

Recommendations for a lightweight cruiser bicycle?

I need recommendations for a relatively lightweight cruiser-type bicycle. I have an Electra Townie, and I like everything about it except the weight (about 35 lbs.) Is there a lighter alternative out there? I'm ideally looking for something that has raised handlebars, a comfortable saddle and easy-to-change gears (good for a bike novice.) I'm not looking for a single-speed.
